Hopefully we will find out today how long they expect him to be there. I wanted to thank you all for your thoughts and prayers, it means so much to me. You are all amazing. So very thoughtful, kind and caring. I'm lucky to be part of this forum!!!

Glad to hear that he came through the surgery okay. I'll continue to keep him in my prayers.

Onward and upward, as they say.

My dad arrives today. I'm excited. Again, he's driving from Sault Ste. Marie and should arrive around 3 pm. It should be a night filled with hockey watching. Who am I kidding? It will be a night and weekend filled with hockey watching! We'll see if he has any other plans when he arrives.

Hopefully I'll have time to enjoy the weather this weekend. Again, temperatures are to be in the mid 20s all weekend. And, of course, the sun will be shining, too. I love all the seasons, especially Winter, but it is truly a great feeling to finally have warm weather back in Ottawa.

Well, I hope you're all ready for the weekend. It's only a few hours away. Have a great Friday!

Have fun with your dad this weekend!!!!!!!!

That thing hurts like a son of a gun! It has been shooting pain into the front of my left leg. Anyway, I'm sure it will be better soon and not anything big...be back to normal soon.

The doc has me on a steroid. He said it won't give me 'roid rage, but will make me hungry. So, my BBQ bender I have planned for this weekend may have just gotten even bigger.

Hope you all have a great Friday!


Praying you feel better soon!!!!

Updated news on my mom. Since she has fractured her ankle she will be having surgery and has to have screws put in. She is very nervous about it.

If anyone has been through this could you please send me a private message? She is wanting info on what to expect to calm her nerves and I can pass that info along to her. Thanks in advance!

Prayers and good thoughts sent her way will be greatly appreciated!

Glad to have the opportunity to start a brand new position right away on Monday. Having no downtime and a constant income is exactly what I need.
Good luck with your new position!

Yesterday I watched The Brady Bunch (yes, love that show still). It was the Christmas episode where Carol loses her voice due to laryngitis. I love when Cindy ask Santa to give her mom's voice back for Christmas so she can sing at church and he she would be able to sing. Her dad says, "Santa can't do that, he's not a doctor". Cindy says with a big smile, "He's better than a doctor, he's Santa Claus"! You go Cindy! I'm a dork, I know! Yep, I love that show! Ha ha!

With the cool weather that show came at a perfect time, it felt Christmasy. I then popped in a M*A*S*H DVD and watched a Christmas episode from that series.


It's about time you get back on here!!!!!

Ryan, I know all too well about those back problems. So painful! I cannot take steroids at all. They have even prescribed me a child's dosage of it. It doesn't make me hungry, I actually lose my appetite completely and get the jitters really bad. I will not take them at all! I am sure you will do just fine on them, most people do.

Get well!

You might check the WebMD website---they might have "what to expect" information. Will be thinking of her---and you.
