The knee saga continues!

Johnny got his mri results back today and they confirmed that he did more damage. He tore his menescus or however you spell it. The doctor told him that he can't fix it that he can only shave it done. This won't hurt his recovery or mobility which is good. The bad thing is it may cause artheritis sooner in his knee because there is less cushion there. He is on board for surgery on Feb. 16th and no sooner because the doctor can't do it any sooner. After the surgery he will then have to be on crutches for 4 to 6 weeks before recovery starts. That probably means that he will be on crutches when the baby is born. At this point I am just happy that he is going through with the surgery and I am trying to be as supportive as I can. He is really upset at the first doctor that he saw because the doctor told him that he can't do anymore damage to his knee since he tore his acl. That is a bunch of hooey since there is so much that goes on in your knees. As for me and the baby she is doing great as far as I know. I go the doctor on the 9th and will know more then. I am finally sticking good out there. A lot of people told me that I finally have popped out there. I am getting ready for her to come and she couldn't come soon enough. Riley is getting ready too she is so excited to be a big sister. She is noticing babies more and more and wants to hold them and feed them. That is all for now!

I am so thankful to say that Johnny finally went to the doctor. This doctor is located near Emory can came highly recommended. I was so excited that he actually went. The doctor now thinks that he has torn more than his acl and will have to go in for another mri later on this week. If the swelling goes down and they get the mri results he may go in as soon as Feb. 6th for the surgery. The sooner the better as its getting closer and closer to when baby Reese will make her appearance. We are all praying that the can get it done then. If not he has two other dates the later being March 6th. I will keep an update going on this as this is so important to all of us.

The holidays

Oh my gosh. Christmas this year was crazy with all the toys, toys, and more toys. It really looked like Santa puked on our house. Ry was just so happy with everything that she got and I do believe that she appreciated all of it. We had about three days of opening presents which to me was just exhausting. The opening went on right up until New Years Eve when Johnny's dad and his girlfriend left our home and headed back to Indiana. We spent New Years Eve just hanging out the two of us. I watched the locator on WE network and bawled my eyes out for two straight hours. I tried to shut it off but this guy just is so warm hearted and really wants to reconnect these loved ones. Oh you should watch it if you want to cry. I was able to get my New Years kiss and then off to bed. Now we have Johnny's older brother and his wife and two dogs to go and visit. After taking down all the Christmas decor we are heading over his mom's house for dinner.

I am starting to have really bad acid reflux which probably means that Reese has hair. I suffered through this with Ry when I was preggers with her. It just comes with the territory. I try not to eat chocolate but come on I am preggers and its just so good. But, thank you to saltines and sprite my two new best friends. I have my glucose tolerance test on Friday which I am not looking forward to but know that I only have to suffer for a little while. Then its my first doubles tennis match of the season on Sunday. I played the other night and did really well. I think Reese maybe a tennis player and Ry a soccer player. That would be sooo cool. But, anyway once I get a chance to look through the camera hopefully I will be able to post some holiday pictures.
