Hey y'all--SO GLAD the week is over in a few hours! It's been a **** of a couple of weeks. I saw my orthopaedic doc yesterday, and he said my shoulder is doing great, but still needs some work.I had a severe rotator cuff injury.) He gave me a pulley to use as therapy and to see him again in four weeks.

My boyfriend's son is recovering from his accident. His jaw is broken in two spots and his tongue was severed about 75% on the end of it. He was hit directly in the face with a hard plastic bucket that was used to catch condensation from a compressor. (He works in the plant where my BF works as a mechanical engineer.) He needs surgery to repair his jaw, then they will wire it shut while it heals. So far there hasn't been a surgery scheduled, but it should be very soon.

Then to top it off, I got word from my OBGYN that my Pap smear came back abnormal, and the doctor want to perform a colposcopy to determine what the abnormal cells are--benign, pre-cancerous or cancerous. "Luckily", I have been fanatical about reguar Pap tests, so if it is cancer, it is caught early and recovery chances are excellent. I've had a coploscopy before and it was determined that the cells were not cancer at that time. NOT a fun procedure, by the way.

Believe it or not, I'm not worried about what the results are right now. I know that whatever the outcome, I can get through it. I have a wonderful man by my side that will give me all kinds of great support, plus I have wonderful friends--in real life and online.

Geez, I didn't mean to ramble on like that....have a great OP day, y'all!
One day at a time is more than just a saying.....
First goal: Back under 300!
