Happy New Year to all my blog world friends. I wish you all the best in the new new. Here is how we rang in 2010. I don't think Brian and I have ever gone out for New Year, and really I don't miss it. Because we have the best parties, right here, at home! The kids strive to stay up to watch the ball drop.
For those who do not know, the earlier part of the day was interesting. A few weeks ago, I had an incident that involved Christmas lights and a step ladder. Well yesterday, I had a follow up appointment with the orthopedic doctor, to go over the MRI I had done of my knee the day before. Well, in addition to the fact that I tore up my meniscus, they found a blood clot in my calf. This had everyone in a tizzy and got me an ultrasound in the hospital, after hours, on New Year's Eve. Fortunately, I got home in plenty of time to ring in the new year properly. The good news, is the clot is tiny and with warm compresses it should re-absorb.
As for that pesky meniscus, we'll be taking care of that soon surgically. We are looking at Monday, the 11th. The silver lining? It got me out of jury duty. Serious, I got a summons for Jan. 11th. What a way to start the year.
I wish you all the best. I am confident that its only going to get better from here!
