Or got on your Nerves!
So today, I just wanted to tell you:
AIN'T NO CHANGES
Planned for 2012
I have no idea how a lot of you are already into projects, photography, etc., already! I'm doing well to just make it through each day. ;-)
I mentioned earlier in December that all the cabinets here, kitchen and both bathrooms, were painted white. Well, yes ~ 3 times a painter was here! I think they finally got it right. However, the maintenance guys here still have to come and install all new hinges. I've had a lot going on personally so haven't had the energy to have them come yet...but I need to get it done. Due to having to move EVERYTHING out of all the cabinets and all the decor too, I damaged my knees. Yuck! Found out last year when I moved that I have arthritis in both knees and I felt that was the problem. Just continued to have severe pain and also in my legs...some days I've been close to tears and barely able to walk. Saw an orthopedic Dr last week and he is wonderful! X-rays revealed that yes, there is arthritis...in fact, it's bone on bone. However, my knee caps are out of place and that's the source of all the pain. I'm now going to physical therapy 3x a week as well as doing exercises/stretching at home, icing them 4x a day and taking heavy duty Tylenol. It is better at the moment so I'm hoping this does the trick! Such a waste of time as well as unpleasantly painful. I feel silly even mentioning this as there are so many more important issues, including this one:
A dear friend's daughter was critically injured in a motorcycle accident NYE. She's a beautiful young lady and in the Neuro Critical Care Unit at a Dallas hospital with a traumatic brain injury. She's on a ventilator but one lung collapsed Monday night and antibiotics are given for the lung infection. She survived one surgery and an MRI last evening shows damage to the frontal lobes and an indication of a stroke. She has responded to Dr's commands but has not opened her eyes yet. One thing that makes this situation even more horrid is that her sister, Melanie, was murdered near UNT a couple of years ago. You may have seen it on TV and Paula Zahn covered it too and interviewed the parents. One wonders just how much a family can take... God has the Master Plan and we don't so therefore, it is difficult to understand these things, at least for me.
If you would be so kind to pray for Candace and her parents, it would be so appreciated!
