The Weekend...

...went pretty well. Saturday Collin and two other guys from the karate school competed in the tournament. And, while we didn't place, the people who showed up did pretty well. My very first sparring partner, Steve, did his first competition, and only lost by one point! He scored FOUR points, which is AWESOME for his first go! Kelly, the other guy from my school, didn't score at all, but did pretty well. Steve also did the kata, and screwed it up pretty badly, but if you didn't know the kata, you would have never guessed that he'd messed up! Which was truly awesome in and of itself. Collin did pretty well for his first competition. He looked good, but nervous. He's a very timid spirit, and it showed when he went up against other people. For his kata, he did really well. We're not used to practicing our katas for competition, so, while Collin did his kata well and his movements were good, he didn't do it to where he would score well above average.

...Easter went well. I am still in a significant amount of pain, so I stayed home from Easter services and popped a pain pill. Then after they got back from church, we went over to Aaron's parents' house. I laid around with a heating pad on my back and the kids played with Grandma. They LOVE her. She plays with them and enjoys them like Aaron and I don't have the energy to. And I love that. I'm chopped liver when she's around, but I am past being hurt by it. It actually is nice to not have to strategically place myself at the dinner table so that I can sit by both twins.

...So I just got off the phone with the urologist. New antibiotics and more tests to be run for me. One under anesthesia! Go me! We shall see what happens next. Am hoping to get to the root of the pain that I've been in.

I was really, really sick one time and felt like I couldn't get was the flu...and what ever the doctor said, I had no thoughts what so ever about not doing what he said at that moment...I just wanted to be well. I bet you are at that point too......and I am feeling your pain! I didn't care how much it cost or what I needed to do to get well, I just did it in hopes I would feel a better.

Steph I hope you get to the bottom of this soon - you poor thing. Living with that pain has to suck. Take care, K?

Katie says she may have found ahouse, do you know where it is?

And how soon will you get checked out? I mean with anesthetic and all. Maybe that will be a worthwhile test, at least the drugs will be good.
