I am such a bad blogger! So much has occurred and I am overwhelmed! Y'all know I had some hip issues and well, ended up having to have a procedure on the hip in August. I struggled thru the surgery and the post op period, it was an experimental procedure called PRP injection. Lets just say, I may not do the second one! Lol. They take your blood and centrifuge it, then they inject that back into the injured area and cross your fingers! No pain meds to help ease the pain of trying to reach the hip joint, plus I had to be free of all my PsA/Sjogrens meds for 7 days before the procedure. So I'm sure you can guess, a flare occurred and the pain was horrible. It's been 3 and a half weeks and I still can't sleep on my right side! Ugh! Rehab is ordered, but John has been out of work for 15 weeks, and I just can't afford my 55 dollar copay twice a week! Double ugh!
Keep your fingers crossed that his company gets the bid! They've been told they have about a week's worth, just waiting to see if they win the next job bid!
Thank goodness we did have money saved, but our account is getting pretty skinny! Lol
One to good news though, I won a $50 gift certificate at Laurel's Stitchery shop online! I've waited until after market to shop so I can get some of the newest goodies that are out there!
The bottom pic is after surgery and I didn't dare show the pic with tears!
My dogs Huckleberry and Wally have kept me company during my recovery time! I'm finally back to work, but work is helping me out when I have to mop the floors! Thanks to a great cafe staff that really does like me :)
This is so long, that I'll break for now and post more later!
Hugs from me!

We surprised my brother for his 44th birthday by having a pool party, he really was surprised!
Onto the stitching front! I'm working on the Hometown Holiday village series from LHN, my goal is to have at least 3 to 4 completed by Christmas time for my mantel!
Health wise I'm doing fine except for the pesky PsA/Srogrens Syndrome that plagues me. I have developed bursitis in my hip, physical therapy is tough, it hurts! I have been advised that I shouldn't walk anymore! What the heck! I can swim ( but to do that I gotta drive 30 minutes one way ), I can buy a bicycle, but I just spent money on a new elliptical machine!
All I know is arthritis is very mean and I hate it! Ok, my pitiful vent is over!
Good news though, my son Jason has got engaged to Aliyiah, I fear I may have mis spelled her name! It will be a long engagement since she is on a mission trip to Africa. Time will tell! But she makes my son very happy and that's all that matters! They tease me by telling me they are gonna give me Oreo babies! I told them, I love Oreos, but they need to wait before any grandchildren are brought in this world! I'm not ready to be a Nana! Lol

We had a really great time, very relaxing, I loved the hot tub! I was in that sucker every night! :)
Did I cross stitch at all down there? Just a tiny bit! Not much, cause I kept falling asleep on that luxurious bed! It made us realize that we need a new mattress !

It's been a good here! The boys got me chocolate, grilled dinner for me and did my dishes! I cut the grass too! It was my workout for the day :)
We are down to 8 more days of school and I'm getting excited! Wahoo for me!
Hugs from me,
