Good afternoon. Synvisc shot #2 today

I have had wonderful news. If the shot shows effect soon after injections the likelihood that it is going to be successful if more promising! Well I could tell the difference within 12 hours by 30 hour I had walked 12-15 steps limp free last week.
I also found out that knee replacement my not be the threat upon me. I am more a candidate for continued use of newer drugs injected. They are finding that a new cortisone may decrease the chemicals in the joint that eat the cartilage away. As long as the injections are in the joint cavity and NOT around the soft tissue. He thinks that in 10 years or so the may develop a type of injection like a silicone or epoxy that adheres to the bone end. This is a real encouragement for me because of my age.
So I am a hurting girl right now.
I got the shot in around 11 A.m., I am so privileged and fortunate to have the medication available, it has only been on the market a few years now. It is showing good signs of growing cartilage.
I had some dark chocolate with cherries and almonds for a treat. I hope I did not fall to hard on my plan doing so. When I am in so much pain I think I try to nurture myself with a "goodie" just like my mom would do.

Older women likewise teach the younger women...

• how to love their husbands
• how to love their children
• how to be self-controlled
• how to be pure
• how to be keepers at home
• how to be kind and submissive (not subservient) to their own husbands. (See Titus 2:3-5)

'A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ
That a man should have to seek Him first to find her.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not shouting 'I'm clean living,'
I'm whispering 'I was lost, Now I'm found and forgiven.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I don't speak of this with pride.
I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not trying to be strong.
I'm professing that I'm weak and need His strength to carry on.

When I say.. 'I am a Christian' I'm not bragging of success.
I'm admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not claiming to be perfect,
My flaws are far too visible, but God believes I am worth it.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I still feel the sting of pain...
I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not holier than thou,
I'm just a simple sinner Who received God's good grace, somehow!

Words have power. Here are a few of my favorite sayings.

  • A warm cup of tea is like a cuddle with a friend.
  • The North American Indians have a more eloquent word for ‘friend’ than we do in English. In their language, the word for friend literally means, “the one who carries my sorrows on his back.”
  • Return with Honor
  • The sage anticipates things that are difficult while they are easy, and does things that would become great while they are small. All difficult things in the world are sure to arise from a previous state in which they were easy, and all great things from one in which they were small. Therefore the sage, while he never does what is great, is able on that account to accomplish the greatest things."
  • "HOME IS WHERE YOUR STORY BEGINS"
  • “Live so that when your children hear these words they think of you… Fairness Caring Integrity Honesty Love Trust.”
  • "O Lord help my words to be gracious and tender today, for tomarrow I may have to eat them."
  • "No man has ever been shot while doing the dishes"
