    Man, first I had trouble with the internet at home, then we moved the office and we were down there and then I had to have surgery. So it feels like I have been gone forever.
    I had to have surgery on my foot and boy was it a LOT worse then I ever in my wildest dreams expected. I can not walk or should I say should not walk because I have three pens sticking out of three of my toes, and we are in the middle of a major winter storm. I had Surgery on the 21st and then my DH and DD packed me in a car on the 25th I believe (Tuesday) and we headed to Texas to spend Thanksgiving with my son, (of course we had no internet). I really do not remember much.
    They gave me Percoset (sp) and I was allergic to it and then they gave me Vicodine (sp), also allergic to it. Every time I think about moving my toes it just hurts like no tomorrow.
    We came home Saturday night (the 29th) and the 30th all the roads around us are closed because of the storm. I felt so bad that I have not even had a chance to go see all the goats. My DD and DH had to dig the snow out of the barn and lock them all in. I guess some of the barns had 3-4 feet of snow in them. I tell you I prayed that we would get home to all the animals safe along with us. Well the Lord did that. We got home just in the nick of time.

    Hope everyone had a GREAT Thanksgiving. I have to say I sure missed you all.

    Oh wow Lori I hope everything heals and you get out of pain soon. :hug:

    Thats wonderful that the goaties were ok and you have the peace of mind now.


    My brothers flight back to chicago is delayed because of high traffic I am sure but also because of weather -- chicago is getting dumped on with snow. (not as bad as you all have though)

    Lori - SO sorry to hear about the pain from the surgery; hope your toes/foot is healing well. I'm really glad you got home safely, it's much better being stuck in a storm like this at home than on the road somewhere.

    We had no idea this storm was coming, the weather forecasters seemed to have been a little off in this prediction. :) My oldest is home from CU Boulder and we are supposed to get him back today.... we're not sure we can get out at this point.

    Lori....I'm sure DH and DD will be sure your goaties are taken care of, you just relax and rest that foot! Glad you got to spend your holiday with your DS, and there certainly was a guardian Angel with you all on your trip back home.

    I was lucky enough to be able to take vicodin after my foot surgery...though falling and bending pins didn't help at all....so it is VERY important to stay off the crutches as much as you can til those pins come out! So be a good girl and do as the dr ordered :hug:

    Great to see you back!

    Thanks you all. I feel better already. (ok I wish it was that easy).
    I came to work today DH had to drive me in and you talk about funny. I am the only female here in the work place of 27 guys. They all about turned blue and threw up when they saw the pins in my toes. MEN, they are big wimps. :slapfloor:
