Yep, LSU has had some doozies! I kinda expect to lose Miles this year, but we'll see. I know Saban would be happy to come back, but we don't want him! LOL! But, I understand 'Bama loving him as we did.

Well, the main thing we did to our 'Bama was friends was steal their flag and replace it with an LSU one- it was really funny though for several reasons. First, they have their flag up on their house, which is two down from us. My DH planned to switch them, but we were worried their safety lights would come on and were scared someone would call the cops on us if they saw us out there at 2 AM!! So, we waited. Well, dummy put her flag out by her mailbox by the road on game day- DUH!! DH ran out and switched it while they were in the back yard. I thought he'd get caught! I was suppose to be distracting them, but the baby wouldn't come on, so that didn't work. When she finally realized it was switched, she kinda freaked out! She called to all of the neighbors looking for it. She was so mad and worried about it- said her MeeMaw gave it to her and it was special! Now, some background- she isn't a football fan at all- just likes to mess with us when 'Bama or Auburn plays LSU- you know she's not a true fan when she has shirts for both of those teams, right? Anyway, she keeps calling everyone and is really mad. Well, a bit later, I get a text from her saying she heard it was me that took it. technically, I did not take it- DH did, so I told her it was not me. A couple of hours later, her DH comes to my house to get her flag back. Turns out my DS told her that he THOUGHT we took it! See what you get for talking around a 7 year old? GEEZ! Then, we went to decorate and watch the game at her house. So, I took our flag back over there and stuck it flying out of the back of her DH's truck! Plus, all of my treats I brought were LSU ones. She was nice and made a great cake that was decorated as a football field- it had an Alabama "A" and an LSU on it- precious!

That is funny Brandi. It is nice to have friendly rivalries. I know a couple of doctors that graduated from LSU and it is funny when we all get together. I work with one nurse whose husband graduated from Auburn and another one who graduted from Miss. State herself. It can get sticky on Iron Bowl day because we can wear a team jersey if we bring in a canned good, when you look around all you see is orange and blue or crimson and white. I think it is pretty evenly divided.

Watching the LSU vs. Arkansas game now. I LOVE the helmets LSU is wearing.

Thank you Mary. We do make bad patients, but it comes from knowing what all can happen . I woke up this morning and I had to get the splint off fast. It felt like my heel was on FIRE .

Good evening Dana. We watched that LSU/AR game too. It was not a happy ending at Sandi's house. I did get Sandi a really cute AR shirt to make up for the loss.

Hope your appt. goes well tomorrow. Be sure to let us know. Back to work for me. We had such a good weekend. I left my computer at home so had to use Alex's when he would let me. Nothing like an 11 year old.

Really? I hated the helmets and uniforms in general in that game! DH said they were required to wear them b/c Nike bought all of their uniforms this year and it was something special they wanted for them? I did not like them at all. Oh well!

Ready for the Saints game tomorrow now!!

I'm sure she will appreciate the shirt more than she would have a win by Arkansas. I love that Amanda is getting into football now. It use to be just Dale and I watching the games, now she gets into it with us .

I will keep everyone posted as to what I find out tomorrow. My leg has been REALLY hurting today, even the pain meds haven't done much good. I know what you mean about 11 yos and computers. Dale and Dallas share one and it takes an act of Congress for Dale to get the computer from Dallas........

Of course I'm glad Auburn lost .

Oh no you hated the helmets? I thought they were really cool. I didn't care for the uniform, but I liked the gold helmets. Dale mentioned the deal with Nike too.

I'm ready for the Saints game too. I have been a Saints fan for as long as I can remember. I wore my black and gold when everyone else was wearing their bags . I met Jim Mora at the Senior Bowl one year and he was such a JERK. I'm glad he is out of football totally. I hope we will see the Saints in the Super Bowl this season. I think our time has come .

I have always been a fan, too. So has DH, which is nice. But, DH was also a HUGE Tony Dorset fan and we ran into him, literally, at the Riverwalk in New Orleans a few years back- Dh just about pee'd on himself
But, I have liked Drew Brees since he was in college and am SO glad he's here. Oh, and the Saints Training Camp came to our school right before T-Day break and it was so cool. There weren't any current players there of course, but the Beer Man- Lewis- was there to help and the kids had the best time. So, here's hoping a big WIN tonight- GEAUX SAINTS!

We are so nervous right now . I hope the Saints open up a big ole can of whip butt. I can't stand Tom Brady! I bet the kids had a great time. We haven't been to a Saints game since before Katrina. That money goes toward our Disney trips now. That is too funny about your DH


GEAUX SAINTS

Update

Just a quick update about my leg. I don't know much more that I did yesterday really. The doctor said he doesn't think I have a total rupture because there wasn't a gap in the muscle. He said I would have to get an MRI to be sure I didn't need surgery, but we have to wait and get an approval from BCBS before they can do the MRI. The pictures below are of the immobilizer/splint I have to wear for the next 6 weeks. I have to sleep in this thing too and I swear it weighs a ton .

Hope you get your MRI so your diagnosis will be more accurate. We haven't had any issues with BCBS. I hope you don't either.

Try not to get too bothered by the immobilizer. The time will pass by quickly. We will be praying for you!!

GEAUX SAINTS!!
11-0 BABY!!!
I hope you were being a good girl and not jumping around on that leg too much!!!
I hope the drs ofc is able to get your approval and MRI set up quickly...when I worked for the orthos we would set up an appt and get approval by the next day for cases such as your (the girl who did dictation would get sooo mad--she would have to stop the dr she was working on and do that patient so we could send BCBS the info )...
SIX weeks is not too bad...and just think the muscle tone you will build
(trying to find the good side )
hang in there!

It surprised me when Dr Daugherty said they had to get the approval from BCBS. I have never had to get an approval before. Now I have to talk myself into the MRI. I hope they can put me in feet first because I have a bad case of claustrophobia too .

Thank you Leanne, I need all the prayers I can get . How is Josie? I bet she is running around like she was never sick.

Thank you Becky . I know God has a reason for everything and this may be His way of teaching me patients. One virtue I do not possess.

I can't believe how good the Saints are this year. WOW, I think they are Super Bowl bound.

LOL...Connie you are a mess. I didn't jump around, but I sure was yelling loudly. Dallas came running into the living room, poor baby thought I had hurt my leg again.
I have never had to get pre-approved before, that kinda surprised me. It would be great if they would do an open MRI. Six weeks isn't too bad, except when I think it will be 2010 before I can go back to work . The problem with the muscle tone is it won't be bilateral . Maybe they will call me in the morning about the MRI. I hope it is Thursday because that is the only day Amanda can take me and I can't go by myself, the parking at the hospital and orthos office is horrible at best.

It is a rainy day here today and it looks cold outside, it is for us because it is 47. I wish it would drop down lower so we could get some snow. The Christmas show "The Year Without a Santa Claus" always comes to mind when I think about it snowing here. The part where Heat Miser and Snow Miser are singing.

This is it.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yon2YuXssvo





I finished up my Christmas shopping last night online. We just got Amanda and Tyler a few things for under the tree because we are giving them money.

Below is the list of stuff the kids are getting. Give me ya'll's opinion. Do you think I should get them more? Can ya'll tell cabin fever is already setting in....

Dallas' list
New Super Mario game for Wii
Bakugan game for his DS
DVD player
Up DVD
Custom Robo for Wii
several packs of Bakugan action figures
Bakusphere
This just doesn't seem like much.

Tyler
An electric razor
Axe gift set
MP3 player
a couple of shirts
boxers-----hehehe
tee shirts
and money

Amanda
Tink pjs
snuggie
new robe
new cell phone
and money

The lists seem so short to me.



Of course we will put some little things in their stockings. Any ideas of some stocking stuffers? I am open to any ideas about gifts to add too.

I'm starting to get a little depressed knowing I will not be able to go to the mall and see the Christmas decorations . I always look forward to that.
I hate being blah.
