"It just goes to show you...it's always something!" - Roseanne Roseannadanna

You never know what a day is going to bring. Friday night, I broke a tooth...today I got a new one, albeit temporary. Since about noon, I've been frantically packing things away and cleaning my house because for the next four weeks, I'd planned to stay off my feet. Back in October, I was scheduled for foot surgery that was to be done tomorrow morning.

But something happened to my eye late this afternoon as I was vacuuming my floors. In 2003 I had retina problems and recognized what it was right away, so I called my ophthalmologist, who told me to call my retina specialist, who told me to be there first thing tomorrow. On the phone, the nurse told me to not have anything to eat or drink after midnight because from the description I gave the doctor…I’ll be having laser surgery in the morning. So…I called to reschedule my foot surgery. Like Roseanne Roseannadanna said...it's always something! (smile)

I've had many things fixed in the last 30 years: both eyes with retina damage; later I had ocular lens implants; both wrists for carpel tunnel; 8 abdominal surgeries (which caused me to offer safe storage if my doctor needed to hide any jewelry, money or guns inside my belly, since he'd be back in there eventually); three surgeries on my right knee; surgeries on both feet at the same time to repair bunions and hammertoes and tomorrow was supposed to be two more hammertoes. If I keep getting stuff fixed, by the time we've been married for 50 years, Joe will have a whole new woman!!!

Looks like I’m going to be fixed from head to toe when this is all over!!! (Now, if I could just stop gravity!)

I covet your prayers...

And remember: If you have a pulse, you have a purpose...so make your life count!
