I started my blog one year ago today and I'm sorry to say that I haven't done as well as I would have like to have done. I'm still trying to catch up on the last 5 months of 2009 before going forward into 2010. Some may ask why I don't forget about catching up. Well the reason I wanted to blog is because I keep a journal and I have tried scrapbooking. Blogging is both of those put together and a lot easier, so now that I started on 2009 I can't just leave part of it off. I plan on making a blog book once in a while and my posterity who may someday read it would always wonder what else happened in her life the last five months of 2009.
The reason I have gotten so behind is because after suffering with hip, back and leg pain for several years and not being able find out what was wrong, I ended up in the ER the last weekend in September. They took an xray and discovered that I had bone on bone in my hip. After getting in to a specialist and finding out I needed a hip replacement, I had to wait 7 weeks before they could do the surgery on December 15th. My daughter Kortney was staying with us for a couple of weeks and she and her dad took really good care of me as I recovered. Jeff and Chell came and helped out too. They brought sweet little Briston over almost daily to cheer me up and he sure did a good job of that! Thanks to all of you, I love ya lots!! I have so many loved ones who called to check on me and I love you all! I have the best family in the whole wide world!! I have been recovering fairly well until a few days ago I had an allergic reaction to the aspirin I was taking to thin my blood to help prevent bloodclots. I got hives all over my body, my eyes swelled and my upper lip doubled in size! Itchy, scary, and miserable to say the least! Thanks to a good doctor, an IV and more meds, we got it under control and I've had a good 1st day of 2010!
