Okay some of you may know that Tim got in a wreck in high school that caused him to have knee surgery on his right knee. well through out the years his left knee has started to bother him. He went to the doctor about 8 weeks ago he gave him some meds and excersises to do to strengthen the muscles. Nothing helped he could barely walk on some days.
He went back to the doctor 6 weeks later. He told the doctor what he thought it was...the miniscus (sp?) the doctor agrreed and told him to go get a MRI. After the results came back they told him he had a baker cyst and that he needed to go to a orthopedic doctor.
Yesterday he had his appointment. Tim loves his Doctor he thinks he is awesome. Dr. Otero told him that lots of people have baker cysts and that his problem was that his miniscus (sp?) was torn and his knee cap was crooked. The reason is because the muscles that go accross the knee one was longer than the other and that it was pulling he knee cap weird. So he needs surgery.
He has his surgery on May 15th. we'll need to pay about 10% of the surgery and the rest of our deductible. Little nervous but I know this is what needs to be done. The doctor also told Tim that his other knee looks bad, but his said we're not going to fix it if its not broke. He did say he would probably have to come back in a couple of years and have surgery again. I hope not we are going to pray for healing.
I'll give you a update once he has his surgery. Pray for comfort for him, direction with the hands of the doctor, and that the Lord will provide for finances.
Okay on Easter Sunday the tradition is to go take pictures by the flowers. Since Tim and I haven't gone to Prince of Peace we have never done that. Here are the pics from Sunday. We were having to much fun.
In this Picture its my Cousin Bryan, Uncle Terry, Tim, My Dad, and My Cousin Jonathan
Me and Amy:
Okay for some reason when Amy was little she didn't know how to smile and so many pictures of her looked like this but sometimes I don't do it right so it turned out scary looking. We have so many of pictures like this.
Me and Tim- this Picture is before Tim edited it. His face is real dark but it's what I have. Sorry
And then Gracee and My dad playing on the couch.
We finally finished the game room project. Last thursday Terry came over and helped Tim rebuild the base for the pool table. After they finished the base they went inside to install the A/C unit, while they were installing the A/C I was painting the base.
My mom came over on friday night and helped me hang on the decor in the room. Tim got the TV mount up and the tv working. After my mom left I started to paint the top of the pool table well of course after taping the table off to the paint wouldn't get on the felt.
We had a bunch of people come over on saturday that hadn't seen the house yet. The game room was a hit. If I showed the game room first nobody would leave to see the rest of the house...or well it took them a lot longer to leave.
Here are the Pictures:
wow what a weekend. We headed down to College Station friday afternoon. We were really excited about going camping and hanging out seeing a bunch of bands. Tim and I are just to old for this. We loaded up Josh's truck with our stuff and their stuff and headed to Snook. We sat in a line in the middle of nowhere for about 30-45 mins. Josh was smart he brought a dolly he knew we would have to carry eveything to our camp site. We loaded up the dolly and picked up the rest of the stuff and turned to walk to our site. We couldn't even see the entrance to the grounds. We were over a mile away. About half way there the tire blew out on the dolly, now Tim and Josh are dragging the dolly. When we finally got the the entrance we had to basically unpack everything at the entrance so they could search our stuff.
We got kinda lost once we got in there and we coudln't find the row we needed to go down. I said instead of us carrying all this stuff around why don't I go search for it while ya'll wait. So I leave with no phone. I couldn't find the row so I head back a different way because the way I went was very busy and crowded. I got back there and no one is there. I couldn't find them anywhere....turns out they started to look for the row by themselves. leaving me to find the. Oh I was soooo scared.
Now its about ten...my bed time. There was no way I was going to be able to sleep it was soooo loud. finally at about two I had to sleep. I finally fell sleep when it started to rain. The music that was blaring finally stoped at about 4 then started playing again at 6. At about this time we hear someone say they want to steal something and then someone starts messing with our tent, Tim and I both swing our arms up and hit the girl. She starts going off saying that we are rude and that we need to let her in. She went on for about 15 mins saying she was cold and that we needed to let her in. I finally said go away your at the wrong tent. She opened our rain guard and looked at us saying she was serious and that we needed to let her in because she was cold. Fun stuff...not going back to sleep now.
On saturday we finally got out of the tent. It was so cold so we got all these clothes on. and then about 10 it got so hot then we had to take all the clothes back off. We watched some of the bands and then packed up our stuff to leave. We realized if we waited to leave until the end it would take us FOREVER to get out of there and then we needed to walk all that way so we left at about 2:30. When we finally got to gate Josh decided to go get the truck and we would load it up at the gate instead of dragging it all that way. Worked out great. Oh funny story....Tim was walking in front of me while we were going through the crowds trying to get out. He was carrying this hiking backpay and since he tied his boots to the side of the bag one on each side. As he was walking he kit so many people in the face with those boots they were getting mad...it was way to funny!
That's it. We had fun but we won't do that again. We'll go camping, but not camping at a party.
