Sorry I haven't posted in a while but my computer is broke and our daughter has had here computer only G-- knows where for the past few days. Don't really know what to think about children anymore; you raise them with all kinds of values and morals and then they just become hmmm their own person...... anyway...she has moved back home for her last semester of college because it's only an hour away and her boyfriend of 4 yrs broke up with her (whom we absolutely love) so she has decided to sow her wild oats for the first time...boy do I ever hope this doesn't last too long!!!!!!
Anyway, other than her drama things are quiet except the stent now hurts continuously. The spasm meds don't work anymore and I'm just getting used to being in discomfort ALL the time, only 6 more days though and it will be OVER!!!!!!!!
Laurie - I so know what you are going through with your son, our other daughter had to have reconstructive surgery on her foot at 14 yrs old and couldn't even let it touch the ground for 8 wks then was in able to gradually put weight on it over the next 7 wks. After that she had 4 more foot surgeries and had a stress fracture in every metatarsil. It was a looooooooong high school life and she was a cheerleader so firgure that into the foot mess!
I hope everyone else is having a good summer and enjoying nice weather. We haven't had too many nice days in NY; it seems to rain just about every day and we haven't had very many days out of the 70's. It will probably be hotter than hot when school starts again, oh well, that's NY for you.
Take care and feel well,
