Zero is My Hero!

Do you see the little girl on the far right?

The one that's approximately two inches shorter than
everyone else on her basketball team?

The one who is staring off into space and could care less?

That's my Tori.

She started playing basketball a few weeks ago
and she was assigned the jersey number...

Tori was a little hurt by this
but my sister told her that
"zero is before the number one."

That made Tori smile
and she's been rocking her number ever since.

She will probably never be MVP or an all star
but Tori gives it her all.
She puts out 100 percent all the time.
She never lets her height slow her down.

Last Saturday Tori was running a new play
that they had learned just a few days prior.
This play involves Tori running in and making the basket.

I cringe everytime it's her turn because
she normally misses the basket.
This time, Tori set up her shot
and nailed it!!!
Nothin' but net baby!!!!

I was soooo excited that I jumped up
and started screaming.

The whole gym was chanting her name.
Tori! Tori! Tori!

My number zero just took it in stride,
skipped down the court,
and stopped for a photo op.

Tori has taught me so much in these last few weeks.
She's taught me to press on despite
my physical shortcomings.

I am so proud of my zero.
She is my new hero.

Hey Stranger!!!!!

I know you've been wondering....
"Where'd ya go?"

I've been at home.
All day.
Every day.

I'm starting to feel like that little fella above.
Staring out into the world and watching it go by.
Many of you have commented that you
have missed me and wanted to know how I am doing.

I'm kinda like a puppy...
most days I have to wait until
Mr. M comes home to take me to pee
and feed me.

These last few days have been really good.
I am not only able to walk again....YAY!
I don't have to use my cane as much unless it's for long distances.

I saw the new doc and he ran ALL kinds of tests on me...
 I thought I was gonna need some juice and a cookie after all that blood...
They drew fourteen...that's right...FOURTEEN large tubes of blood at one time.
I'm a nurse so I'm no wimp when it comes to needles and such
but good heavens!!!!

I have to go take all kinds of xrays next...
If you look towards the southeast at will probably be able to
see me glowing.

I've started this diet HIGH in seafood

(I've started to grow fins...)
But the omega-3's and the vitamin E
are helping my inflammatory process

I'm not much on "all natural" stuff...
some of it is a bunch of crock
but this is working.
I can walk and my pain is
very tolerable. it is.

I have been keeping myself occupied.

My Etsy shop is now open!!!
That's right....

I've listed a few of my pieces to get started
so if you see something you like...
feel free to buy it!!!!

Here are a sample of my wares...

Nice, huh?

I've also done some projects
and some altered junque.

I can't wait to show ya'll
my new items for Valentines.
(Which happens to be my favorite day of the whole year!!!!)

Check back tomorrow and
see what else is in "store" for ya'll!!!!

Thank ya'll soooooo much
for thinking of me and offering
prayers on my behalf.
I know that I couldn't have come this far without it.

If anyone has any great fish recipes out there...
I'm all fins.
