09/06/2006 Sorry haven't updated in a while, there hasn't really been much to tell, had to resubmit to insurance, should know something by the middle of this month. But have been busy, my daughter just started college, and my co-worker retired so I'm working by myself right now. As far as health, I can't wait to have this surgery, I'm in pain alot, it hurts to walk, and simple things make me very tired.
10/19/2006 Nothing new yet, I should know within the next few weeks, I'm hoping to have the surgery done by Feb. so keep your fingers crossed for me, I want next year to be sooooooo much better than this year. Not much else to report, mostly same'ol'same, once I have the surgery, I'll post pictures, right now I hate to look at pics of me.
