Ok folks. Why is it when we have a 4 day work week it seems like a 6 day work week? Come on, you know I'm not alone. Am I? Of course not. It has seemed like this week will never end, but it is close to being wrapped up since today is FRIDAY!

Joe has been not been feeling well for a couple of weeks. Yall might remember a while back he was in the hospital for a double whammy shingles plus kidney infection. The same area that hurt so badly then is acting up again. Our Dr Turnbo thinks that he has permanent nerve damage due to chronic shingles, many of which that area was effected. That might very well be the case but he is hurting so badly that he went back to the doctor this week. He is having a couple of scans done today. The dr is looking for a variety of things. The tests will start at 9:30am and the last one is at 1pm. He has to drink bunches of water in order to get the dye into all the nooks and crevasses for the 2nd scan to work correctly. He is hoping to be able to get Bill home during that time. Thankfully, my brother in law is ready to go home today. He is ready too! We won't find out any results from Joe's tests until Wednesday of next week but at least something is being done to see what the heck is going on.

Stephanie is doing much better. She is starting to move on and will be ok. She was talking yesterday about considering joining the Navy. She has talked about this before to me and Joe. I told her it was a HUGE decision but if she wanted to know more we would see to it that she go to a recruiting office and see what all is involved.

I have some drama going on with my son that I really don't want to deal with but it must be done. He has to be confronted with what he has done and he has to pay for it. Silly think the drama was going to be over once Steph graduated.

At least it is Friday........after all, it could be Monday of next week and goodness knows I don't want that. Not yet anyway!

The service is a good option for a lot of young people. My nephew has found some great opportunities there.

Life doesn't stay calm for long, does it? I hope Joe finds some answers with the new tests. And once a parent, always a parent, huh?

Sorry about Joe. Betty empathizes.

Poor Joe. Non stop pain is so debilitating. It's terrible to feel like you're never going to be "well" again. Glad Steph's moving on. And sorry for the drama. It's always something, isn't it?

Good luck in all that is going on. Sounds like you have a lot on your plate right now. I hope it all turns out well.

I'm glad that Steph is doing better. Hope that Joe's tests will come out okay. Now every day is Saturday for me--except I worked every day last week (w/o pay) on some lectures that I have to give. At least it is optional!
