Finally Friday

I've had a pretty rough week, ever since that MRI... and I saw the doc yesterday morning... turns out, I was totally wrong. That's what using the 'net to diagnose a medical problem will get ya. I don't have a pinched nerve, that's true, but I also don't have a herniated cervical disk. The doctor I saw, a rehabilitation specialist, doesn't know what it is I have, but whatever it is, the MRI showed it is pressing into my spinal cord, not by a whole lot, but it's there. Which also explained why the MRI was so painful and set me back so much... I'm still feeling awful from it. So now I have a CT scan Monday morning, and the doc referred me to a surgeon. Reminds me of a song... the long and winding road...

Like our driveway, and this is what I saw on my way home yesterday.

Aren't they pretty? I watched them for quite a while, and took a lot of photos.

Later that evening, Sammy came up to me and said something like, "you wouldn't wanna take me over to Aunt Kathy's swimming, would you? Oh, nevermind." And away he walked. So many times this summer he has asked me to take him over, and it seems like I always have some reason (lately my neck) for not going. So I took him. And it was a beautiful evening...

My sister, Janet, arrived at Kathy's on her 4-wheeler with her grandson, Rogan, and soon-to-be-step-grandson, Austin. The 3 boys had a blast together in the pool. By the time I took this photo, I had to use my flash, it was starting to get dark...

3 gorgeous boys.
