OUCH!!! number 2

I went to the orthopedic doctor today and the diagnosis from the urgent care Dr. was wrong. I have Rotator Cuff Sub Acromial Calcific Bursitis or easier is Rotator Cuff Impingement. I need physical therapy and he said 2/3 of people with this respond well to therapy and 1/3 still will need surgery. Of course, I will be praying that I am part of the 2/3. When the Doctor walked in the room he said that it hurt [him] to look at my x-rays. You all wanted to know that, right??? Take care, everybody. Cheryl

My prediction for when we will get snow (we will probably get it sooner, this is for just one of the times) in the Dayton area is uummmm, let's see, January 23rd, 2007,2008,2009... It will be a snow storm and no one will be able to go anywhere.

I have not been sleeping very good (only about 4 hours a night) the last 3 nights because of severe pain in my shoulder down into my arm. You don't know how much you take simple things like taking a shower or being able to change a diaper for granted until you are in so much pain just to lift an arm up that you want to cry. I went to urgent care and had a couple x-rays taken and the doctor said it was tendonitis. I now have pain medicine so hopefully I can sleep tonight.

Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you:
1. Jesus Christ
2. The American G. I.
One died for your soul, the other for your freedom.

Yellowstone Park

I saw the hula hoop guy first and had no idea what it meant. As we walked up to the bridge, to come to this sign, I saw a hole next to the bridge and thought to myself, that looks like a hole something would live in. And almost immediately after that thought, I saw this huge snake coiled up about a foot away from it! I was too scared to take a picture of it and didn't tell the boys about it and just kept going. I made sure we crossed on the other side when we went back and was praying there wouldn't be one on that side, too. I do not like snakes.

Reunion pictures

These are the only pictures worth sharing from the reunion. I am not good at taking pictures. Notice the first one I didn't even take. The top one is Luke, me, my cousin James (Jamie) and his wife Beth and daughter Stephanie. The bottom one is John wearing his cool shades.

This is so cool! I was watching elephants this morning. Yesterday I saw some baboons, a couple warthogs and an impala. Stick it out through the ad at the beginning.
Have fun watching the wild animals!


Sadie loved to sleep with Luke and Matthew.
I love this picture of Terri and John.
John loves his stuffed cow. He has to have it when he sleeps.
