No Not Me Monday

I'm not doing Not Me Monday today because I seriously cannot think of anything right now. I cleaned almost my entire house this weekend, which was nice. I love having a clean house. I still have a WHOLE BUNCHA clothes to wash though. Ugh. It seems if you get behind on laundry, you NEVER catch up. It's very annoying.

I'm going to go see an orthopedic surgeon wednesday for my knees. Mostly my right knee. It started hurting the beginning of 2008. I went to my family doctor around october of 2008. She sent me to a physical therapist to work on it. My right knee was in pain, and everytime I would walk up and down steps it would pop and crack. It sounded nasty. I went to one of the best known physical therapist in the state of Arkansas, which happens to be in my hometown, and I used to go to church with him. Very great man. Anyone that lives in Arkansas and needs physical therapy. Go to Nat Grubbs in Monticello. He's awesome. Well after 10 therapy visits, a lot of electrical impulses, tons of ice packs, workouts, etc. Nothing helped. I was 1 in 5 people in his whole career that could not be fixed. Dr. Nat was not very happy about it either. So I went back to my family doctor and she sent me to an orthopedic surgeon. This was last December. He came in, looked at it, gave me a cortisone shot, and sent me on my way. I did NOT like him. He seemed like he just did not care at all. Plus, the cortisone shot didn't work. So now my right knee is in even more pain, and now my LEFT knee is doing the same thing! So I called Dr. Nat back and asked him to recommend someone for me. So i'm now going to another orthopedic surgeon and see what he thinks needs to be done. Let's hope NO SURGERY!! I'm most likely going to get an MRI done, which is nice because we NEED to figure out what's wrong. The last orthopedic surgeon didn't even talk about an MRI. Then hopefull it will be something that can be easily fixed. Let's hope!

So if you feel inclined to do...please say a prayer for me..I would greatly appreciate it! I'll keep you all updated and what the doctor says!

P.S. If you haven't went over to Mama M or Keely's blogs, you totally should. Their doing a Hot and Healthy Thru The Holidays, which is totally fun. I even won a pedometer from Mama M!!! How awesome is that! Thanks Mama M!


  1. I have to go to an orthopedist on Tuesday morning! My knee started bothering me about three weeks ago---on steps!!! But it's gotten a lot worse in the last week so today I went to the school health center. They gave me a brace and crutches to get through until I'm home for Thanksgiving, but think it might be my menisus? I don't care what it is as long as they can fix it easily! Hoping your outcome on Wednesday is a good one, I'll say a prayer!

  2. I will keep you in my thoughts a pray for you! I hope everything goes well for you!

  3. Ouch! I will pray that the Drs have wisdom!
