Run? Me? I feel like I could:)

So, yesterday was my 6th month Ortho check up on my ankle. Not much change in that baby since my last visit in May which is good for me. He said I could have surgery anytime I wanted and I am in no hurry. I do have a lot of pain and having surgery would take that severe pain away but I am just not ready. Not right now! My last surgery was in Oct 07 which wasn't that long ago…..

Last time we talked about pain relievers and anti inflammatory meds, he told me to take Aleve, which doesn't work!

This time he sent me home with a script for Tramadol and gave me an injection.

The injection is AMAZING! I feel like I can run, but I wont. Haha, that wouldn't be very wise! But just to HAVE THAT FEELING is wonderful. My foot hasn't felt this good since before my accident, so what's that tell ya.

He said the injection may not last very long but if I like it I can call and get another one. HEY, if it works don't fix it right? :)

I'm feeling REALLY good and am THANKFUL to be where I am today after all that has happened!

These next 2 weeks are slammed for me. I've gotta cram in as many prims as I can this week and the week after Thanksgiving because our Open House is Dec 5th and I'm trying to stock the booth with a variety of dolls and ornies.

Ornies are not something I make all of the time because they are so tedious and time consuming so I'm hoping to have enough to cover the tree and fill a few bowls with Kindles help:)

I doubt Ill get a chance to get back on before the Holiday so I'm wishing you all a Wonderful Thanksgiving and to let you know that I am Thankful to all of YOU, my blog pals:) Thank you  for your support, advice, inspiration and friendship!!

Oh sweetie...
Shots are wonderful when we need them like this. I have had several over the years. Relief is temporary but oh what rest we have in that short period.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and thank you for blessing me with each of your posts, and your wonderful dolls. They are just exquisite.

Like everyone, I so wanted to win this precious snowman. You bring your dolls to life with such a beautiful spirit. Thank you for sharing with me.

Happy Thanksgiving sweetie. Country hugs, Sherry
