Went to the doctor today

They are referring me to an orthopedic specialist. :( The doctor didn't like that I still had some swelling in my leg (above my knee).

My knee...

Well, I went to the orthopedic specialist yesterday afternoon...he looked at my knee, gave me a shot of cortisone and sent me off to get an MRI.

I got the MRI last night, so now it's a waiting game to see what's next.

Please pray for me!

Bible Study

I don't know if many of you know that I've been going to bible study every Monday night or not.

It's a Beth Moore study called "Jesus, the One and Only"...can I just say it's AWESOME!!! I'm learning so much and she really gives another perspective on things...it really makes you think! The study is on the life of Jesus...it starts out with the story of Elizabeth becoming pregnant and moves forward through the book of Luke.

There are questions in this study that makes me really think...for example...one of the things Beth Moore asks is, what questions would you ask Mary? Well, things I thought about were, How did your family react? What was L&D like? some of the other ladies were asking questions like What was Jesus like as a boy? Did you know the exact moment you became pregnant?

It's weird, I've read the stories before, but there are things I picked up on this time around that I didn't before. I'm starting to feel the connection of what it was like when Jesus was walking the earth. How it must have felt...if I were there.

Anyway, I'm learning a lot and loving it!!

Knee

My knee is feeling better, but I still have a ways to go.

It's still sore, and bruising is setting in, however, I am now walking without crutches. The swelling went down, only to come back this weekend since I did too much.

I went to the doctor on Friday and she said that I'm doing a lot better, but wants to see me again this coming Friday to determine if I would still need an MRI (I would only need one if my knee doesn't get 90% - 100% better by then...and I'm seeing a lot of improvement from last Tuesday).

OUCH!!!!

Well, I went and did it! I hurt myself playing softball! I was running after a ball and down I went! I hurt my left knee! I went to the dr and she said it looked like a sprain. I have to go back on Friday to have it checked...if it's not any better, then I have to get an MRI done.
So here I sit with my brace on, crutches by my side...I think I'm done playing softball!!

Kevin has been such a great support! When I fell, he came out to the outfield and was asking a lot of questions. He and a husband of another player carried me off the field. Kevin even missed his game to take me to the Urgent Care and to get my prescriptions.

So if you could all pray that my leg heals quickly and that I don't have anything other than a sprain, I'd greatly appreciate it. It's pretty sore still. Thank you!
