A "break"- exactly when I needed it : )

I went to see the ortho MD again...
The Dr fussed at me and said, "You are doing too much! You have a micro tear in your tendon. Put your arm in a sling for 30 days."
I laughed at him. This is my RIGHT arm we are talking about! And I am a MOM!

He seemed to think my being a "Mom" was irrelevant.
I went home- pondering how in the world I was going to manage things with my RIGHT arm in a sling- and basically decided I needed to go away for a little while. When I suggested this to my family...they all laughed at me!
About 2 hours after my Dr. appt- I got a phone call from someone near and dear to all of us...
K9 was on the phone!
I was planning a trip to see her on Nov 1st for her art show- and it turned into a week-long invitation to go to the cabin!

Gawd- I love that dog!

So- wish granted! Christmas came early :) I don't promise to wear the stupid sling the whole time I'm with her, but I do promise not to do the "Mom" thing for at least a week!
There will be updates and photos...and most of you should expect your ears to be burning at some point next week :) We will be talking and thinking about you :)
*Prisim- you will most definitely be missed on this trip- I'd give almost anything for you to be with us.
More soon~

I didn't know if you were blogging--saw you at K9's--how are you?

Glad you got some time with K9. She seems as though she'd be a real hoot.

I got micro-tears in the linings in my knees, just comes with age (not that you are old). I just take an anti-inflammatory and press on.

That'll give you two something to laugh at ME for :)
