Another First Last.....Doc's Appt......AND Bible Study Info!!!!!

WOW now that's a lot to cover in one post, but we will get it done =)
So here we go with another, A BIG, first last. Yesterday was Dak's first day of his last Semester of High School!!! Breathe, just breathe mama. It is going SO fast!! But I'm just so excited for him and so proud of him. He is continuing to work hard, even though he probably could be a slacker at this point and get by. No, instead he traded Life Sports (easy, gravy class) for Art IV (hard, only four students accepted in this class kind of hard), and he has NEVER taken an Art class in High School AT ALL. But he was accepted yesterday and gets started right away today. He is a talented dude, my boy. Okay could I brag more? Oh, I could, but I'm afraid your eyes would get stuck at the top of your head for good =) So we'll carry on.....
Oh speaking of Dak, I just had to include this picture of him and his grandma from CHRISTmas. How adorable are these two? Love them. (Oh yes RJ, his hair is a different color again =) I knew you'd notice =)

Doc's Appointment: I had another follow-up for my knee yesterday, and I was expecting him to want to manipulate it to get further range of motion, because he had mentioned it in my last appointment. But this time, he was so pleased with my progress. He didn't even mention manipulation. Praise You Jesus!!!!!
He said that even though my numbers (range of motion) are the same, he can tell a difference from this month to last and that I'm doing good. So he gave me more pain medicine for night time (I'll be glad when it doesn't hurt at night anymore. Yuck.) and he ordered more PT. I tried to talk him into just two days a week, but in the end he wrote my script for three again, for the next four weeks. So that's okay too. I'm not sure what this will do to my PT schedule, but we'll see.
Also in other knee news, The Mayo Clinic sent me a packet in the mail last week saying that they wanted to see me. What?!! Yep it is time for a follow-up on the right. You see, the surgery I had on the right fell under research, and we had to sign papers that we would do follow-ups etc. But the good news is that they said if I couldn't travel up there right now, that I could fill out the paper work they sent (three pages) and have x-rays done. They were VERY specific about the x-rays they wanted. So when I was in talking to Dr. R yesterday, I asked him if that was something I could have done there. And he said no problem and ordered them right there. So I have the x-rays and now I just have to fill out the paperwork. Isn't God good?!! Yes He is, and all the time He is good!! I love Him so!!!!!
So I have PT today and we will see how the next four weeks will look with that. I was so excited when I left yesterday that I was praising Jesus all through the hall thinking that if someone would see me they would think I was crazy but I didn't care!!! His Name be praised!! Lisa, I was thinking of you sister as I praise walked through the halls of that Dr.'s office =) You are SUCH an inspiration to me girl!!

Bible Study: Our next Bible Study is set to start next Tuesday evening. I can hardly wait to get started!!! It is Beth Moore's "A Woman's Heart: God's Dwelling Place".

We will start next Tuesday evening at 6:00 PM (CST). The time has changed from 7:00 PM (CST) to 6:00 PM (CST). If this time does not work for any of you that would like to participate, then we can change it back to the original time.
This is how it works. We meet every other Tuesday over at Chatzy. I don't have the link up yet, but by next Tuesday, I'll have it up and running again, and I'll let y'all know when it is up again.
On each Tuesday of study, I will post Questions pertinent to the last two weeks of study. On our first meeting, since we haven't study out of our book yet, I pose a few questions that we discuss on that first evening, just to get our feet wet. =)
Okay, so I'm off to get Sir Cuteness and have breakfast. Oh I can hardly stand it =)
Have a Blessed and beautiful day!!!
Psalm 27:13-14 "I am still confident of this: I will see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living. 14 Wait for the LORD, be strong, and take heart and wait for the LORD."
Love you,
