Just cheking in....

I thought I would drop a few lines for those who don't stalk browse Facebook. I am still alive. Sore yes, but here. I've had knee surgery before, so this isn't my first rodeo, but this time it hurts. They went in to do a clean up of torn cartalege and debris(?is someone littering in my knee) but when the doctor came out he told Tracy is was worse than he had anticipated. I had no cartalege left to repair and no fluid around my knee at all. He drilled some holes to cause bleeding and fill the area with a cushion of blood... sounds fun, no? Anyway, he told Tracy he didn't think it would last long and I would need a complete knee replacement....

I wanted to cry when Tracy told me this. I thought I was going to go in, and come out with the knee of a 25 year old like my friend did last month. I went in thinking I would be exercising and losing some of the 5 year post baby and two year post hysterectomy fat. Now I get to have rehab and then another surgery. I know I'm whining. I'll stop now. Thank you LORD, for the insurance that helped pay for it, Tracy's job that paid for the rest. The knee that CAN be fixed, and for a home to recover in. It could be SOOOO much worse.

Y'all take care. Remember to send up a prayer today for those who are in a tight situation. Stand in the gap for somebody. Someone whose in fear of job loss, or already has lost a job. Pray for someone whose home is being foreclosed on, for someone who just doesn't know what's gonna happen next. Pray over their situation and for their heart to be guarded for the one who preys on the weak. Clear that spiritual air around them with a covering of prayer so that God's miracles can take place in their lives. I read today to think of your prayers as the smart bombs that go before the warriors. The prayer clears the way so they can go in and do their job. Crude analogy? Maybe, but think about it a while......
Thank you to all of you who have been checking on me!!
I love ya to stinkin' pieces!!

I'm with you on the whole, 'debris' thing. I felt the same way when they 'stapled' me after my C-section. Wth, office supplies?

At any rate, I hope you recover soon. Sorry to hear it's not going to be as easy as planned, but you're a real spirit to tell us to keep others in our prayers. No worries -- I've got room for you AND them.

Hope you're recovering ok, Calista. I have no doubt God has a purpose in things going the way they did, particularly after your week-long bloggy/FB fast. No such thing as coincidence in the life of a child of God.

Praying for you.

Oh my....take your time recovering! If I was there I would make you a meal! So here is a virtual meal with a virtual chocolate dessert...because I never bring a meal without dessert. Blessings!
