The Mystery Continues
We went to the Doctor on Tuesday concerning K.'s knee. It was not Osgood-Schlatter's disease, and they don't have a clue what it is. All x-rays and the MRI came back perfectly normal. He gave her a cortisone shot--which caused her to nearly pass out--the needle was huge!! She seems to be doing some better, but she is bummed about her basketball season being over. That's the way it has to be. We will take her back in 2 weeks to see what's going on. The Dr. said that if the shot helps, he will know it's one thing and not the other (joint versus muscular). He did ask if she had been tested for rheumatoid arthritis--which my cousin and mother-in-law have. She was tested two years ago for that with negative results--surely her x-ray would show joint damage by now if it was RA. I'm so glad it isn't because I have seen how awful that disease is.
I have had a good week with WW--down 5.5 pounds. I'm happy about that, and I can finally tell a difference in how my clothes fit.
We have Upwards basketball with the twins tomorrow--we will spend our whole afternoon watching games--then I am looking forward to a quiet evening at home with my family. Actually, we're going to have one of those--a quiet evening, that is, tonight. I missed the premiere of "Daniel's Daughter" on Hallmark last week because we were invited for dinner--I'm so glad it's on tonight. My house is clean, supper is cooking, no one has homework, and B. and I have plans to watch a movie together--Life is Good!

My mom gets those shots in her knees, yikes!
5.5 is great,don't you just want to lose 10 total?
I ate Johnny Carino's for lunch today... but didn't blow it too bad :)
I think I am down 9, but my clothes aren't showing it yet. At 6'1" it takes about 20 to show... that can be a plus and a minus...

I haven't been by here in quite a while! It sounds like there's a lot going on. Congrats on your weight loss- that is fantastic.

I hope your daughter's knee is better soon. My hubby had to have a cortisone shot in his foot and he nearly passed out too.

Stop by and check out my new blog Livin' With Me.

Hmm. Sorry about the lack of info on the knee. I will keep praying about that.

Good job on the weight loss. I am thinking about doing WW online too! You may have just sealed the deal for me!

P.S. Be sure and check out the give away at !
