Hi, Late here, just wanted to get off the sofa a few moments.
My left knee is responding rapidly to the injection. It feels so much better tonight. Really improved. My right knee is still hindered. We got a bit of hard news on the right knee. It needs a replacement however the surgeon and I are going to do our best to hold out for the replacement until my mid 50's if I can. The deterioration over the last year is significant. He thinks that the left knee my have torn meniscus but we are going to just let it ride if we are able. I am incouraged because it already feals so much better. Degenerative arthritis is the cause.
So I have a bionic tooth. Or it will be in four months. The implant is going well sore and I am am still on soft foods but doable and I have good pain medications. The kids are so board and hope to have some fun tomorrow.
Please pray for the folks faciing Gustof the Possible catigory 4 hurricane off the south coast of the U.S. Evacuations are in process.
Please also pray for India. The uprising against Christians is leaving murder and homelessness in its wake.
Rejoice that we life in the wonderful country.
thanks you and we are so blessed. remember to give thanks for this is good.

"6-9 months" ... He said, Well that was 11 Months ago. All I have need of.
Some Insurance company's only allow a one time use...
"The approval came through" She said...
Bi-lateral Synvist injections begin this morning. so for the next three weeks, once a week I will be having injections in both of my knees.
I have the films for my low back and right hip.
The Dear woman who has gone to task with the Insurance and set up all the flow got me in this morning to see this very busy surgeon and receive the injection.
All I have need of...
My sweet friend will come for me and drive me this morning.
"If you have the implant this year and the crown next year the benefits will cove at $1500. cap per year." You have excellent Insurance they will even cove a good percentage of the procedure...
Tomorrow morning the procedure begins at 8:30 a.m.
I am going to opt out of the going to sleep because I know that I would get very sick if I take all those pills on an empty stomach.
It will also conserve $300., but the risk of vomiting is my deciding factor. I will as Dash prayed..."practice courage and be brave".
My Beloved is taking the day off to take care of me.
All I have need of...
His hand has provided.
My heart is greatful. He calms the storms and quiets the waves of fear.
All I have need of.
I sip a warm cup of coffee.
Time is approching and I have shaved my legs and put on a red outfit to feal a bit more powerful.
God bless you all!
Catch ya later.

Sleep does a body good.
The garden watering was cared for by a delightfully divine thunderstorm that lasted all night.
Can you see the little white wing dove in the picture. She walked around the house to the other side peacefully.
Off to the west the storm has already dissipated.
It is still dark in the East. I am hoping for a nice cloudy day.
This morning I awoke to the warning call of May Bell (Mabel) the chicken. She was frightened of the feeder. I watched her and she was warning all the others. I went out and moved it but saw nothing. Then I heard the large flapping of wing and looked up but saw nothing. I think there may have been a hawk on the roof above me.
Good ol' May Bell sounded for us. :)
She is the one standing on the feeder.
The children set out these things to collect rain water.
I find it easier to teach children than Mr U. sometimes:)
He is not quit sold on the rainwater harvesting idea.
I learned that in Colorado it is against the law to collect rain water.
I would love to begin this system.
Today will be a day of balence.
I will gingerly care for my knee today. It is very tender.
When you hit your elbow and it just is agony for a moment while it goes away. my knee hurts that way but it does not fade.
I am taking a good rest.
My garden has been watered so I will do simple easy tackles.
I made beloveds lunch easily, handing him that $10 bill I had in my purse.
I think I may do the same for the children today. My leg is most important!
That is what is nice about conserving as a normal way of life. Once in a while if you buy out it is a real treat. For them and for me.
The children are giggleing and playing sweetly.

We had a wonderful play date yesterday. I really enjoyed taking Dove to her girl friend.
It is with misfortune however that she lives on the 3rd and 4th floors of an apartment complex that has no elevator.
Well needless perhaps to say that cortisone does not really help much of anything except inflammation. The bone on bone is awaiting the Synvisk approval from the insurance company, I am in a world of hurt.
I had to take Dash his hearing aides this morning and stumbled upon a little girl who had locked heself in the running car as the mother who was raging at her stomped and cussed. The dad came and cused louder and more angroly at her and the door was unlocked. The kid followed me down the street and the mother was raging at the child.
I spent my morning praying for the little girl.
I took a pain pill as I cried myself to sleep and another after the kids had left for school.
So ...not wanting to let a day go to naught, ...I tore up newspaper and separated out the glossy paper and the coupons.
Only the news print is going in the compost.
I am going to put all the glossy in the recycle bin.
I sat with my leg up all day!
Tearing up newspaper for the compost.
I was able to get all but about 6 inches of the paper torn.
The in laws sent all the newspaper my way.
I thought I would keep and eye out for the item we might use.
I would use them if the items were on sale or reduced already.
I doubt that I would hunt after any of them.
We had a wonderful rain storm.
God watered the bails and the garden for me!
I was so grateful to him for helping me in my efforts.
We will be having a menu this week. It is in my head , not yet on paper or tyed out.
I hope all of you are having a great day.
Amrita I will try to do a post for you on the bail gardening.
I am going to go lay down a few moments before beloved is due home.
The pain pill is making me steepiy and the pain...
Well the pain is attempting to whittle down my reserves.
Bone on bone hurts! My knee is cracking and popping.
I can get in tomorrow if I want to. Not much use in it unless the clearence comes through for the injections. That is more pain then it would get a lot better.
Pain with gain.

(CNN) -- A dog sheltered a newborn baby abandoned by its 14-year-old mother in a field in rural Argentina until the boy was rescued, a doctor said Friday.
The abandoned infant was found in a field with this dog and her newborn puppies.
A resident of a rural area outside La Plata called police late Wednesday night to say that he had heard the baby crying in a field behind his house.
The man went outside and found the infant lying beside the dog and its six newborn puppies, said Daniel Salcedo, chief of police of the Province of Buenos Aires.
The temperature was a chilly 37 degrees, Salcedo said.
The dog had apparently carried the baby 50 meters from where his mother had abandoned him to where the puppies were huddled, police said.
"She took it like a puppy and rescued it," Salcedo said. "The doctors told us if she hadn't done this, he would have died.
"The dog is a hero to us."
Dr. Egidio Melia, director of the Melchor Romero Hospital in La Plata, said police showed up at the hospital at 11:30 p.m. Wednesday with the baby, who doctors say was only a few hours old.
Though the infant had superficial scratches and bruises and was bleeding from his mouth, he was in good shape, Melia said.
The next morning, the child's mother was driven by a neighbor to the hospital and told authorities that the 8-pound, 13-ounce infant is hers, Melia said.
The teenager was immediately given psychological treatment and was hospitalized, he said. She has said little about the incident.The child has been transferred to a children's hospital in La Plata, 37 miles away.
Older women likewise teach the younger women...
• 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)

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"
