Time to Slow Down...

So things were getting busy around here, lots of work shifts booked in the next few weeks, kid's activities and just life.  I'm coming to a screaming halt because of this:


 I guess I should quit extreme sports.  They are just so fun!

So keep the movie reviews coming Tara, Netflix might be my companion for a few days, and maybe sitting and cleaning out some drawers, getting caught up on some scrapbooking and photo management.  I guess my plans of running a 5km this spring are out.

I'm waiting on a referral to a sports med. Dr.  The GP thinks it's one of 3 things, but was hard to assess because of the swelling and the resistance of the patient.. ie. I wouldn't relax my leg so he could reef on the different ligaments to test them out.  Personally I'm hoping for the partial tear of the MCL - medial collateral ligament.

I have some good little helpers about.  And a wonderful husband who went out and got groceries for the week on a Sunday afternoon!


So I will be thankful...
..for great and quick medical care
..for wonderful teammates who drag me off the field, even though 5 ft. 110 lb. girl said she could carry me and asked how much I weigh
..family
..a warm house to waffle about in
..nurse friends to call for info. like who is on call in ER to help with my decision making or lack thereof
..Tylenol #3
..a daughter who loves to bake
..not being like this all the time, and that this can heal
..that my problems are nothing in light of eternity
..that my heart is whole and full and free because of HIS amazing grace for me

Oh dear. We saw The Descendants last night but it's still in theatres.

Oh Linda, I'm so sorry. Have you seen The Help yet? Or Dolphin Tale? Or Soul Surfer? For something more exciting, you'll need to check with Tar. I sure hope you heal quickly.

How is your knee today? What extreme sport were you playing?
Have you seen "The Next Three Days". It's fantastic.
