LMAO = Laughing my ___ Off and you can guess what the "F" added means. 

Lori, where are you?  Do we have to hijack your thread again to get your attention?  Did you smother under that pile of homework?  Are you still hung over from all of those party drinks?  Huh, huh, huh?  Come back.  We miss you!

Hello........ I miss you all soooo much! Im really sorry I have not been on, but I have had a really CRAZY past few weeks....I have been helping out a friend with her kids, watching them during the day... doing MEGA amounts of school work, PT, Girl scout functions, Girls on the Run stuff ( my daughter ran a 5 K YAY) Mom has been hanging out, Hubby was on vacation, water pipe under slab foundation broke, computer would not work... (duh... disconected cable....)  I have been a running fool.....
By the end of the day Im worn out, and have not even been able to stay awake to watch any of my shows......3 weeks behind on all my favs...

Tyler is doing GREAT. He went back to school last Monday... YAY He still has more work to do, so we have been going to his Homebound teacher after PT, after school... The Basketball Team has invited him to travel with him and attend all games, so hes kinda happy about that...although he wants to play soooo bad, you just see it as he sits there encouraging them to score! He did get to go to the Celtics game... he earned it, He is still working very hard at school work, .. it seems like whenever he is almost done  another teacher gives him more tests or work he needs to do freom when he was out. I am still trying to get his last report card fixed, and am curious about what this one holds....
He is down to one crutch at school, and thats only cause of the crowds in the hall, and he sometimes gets tired.... All the walking has caused his  I .T . Band in his thigh to tighten up causing him to limp and over use the knee muscles....which gets achy.... He was so sore the other day he had to use his crutches to just get around in the house... but it comes and goes and Im sure its just from all the added activity...
He fell down the stairs on Friday, hurt his tail bone a little, but the knees are ok.... no biggie tho... just added 20 more grey hairs to my head....He cant ride the bus yet, cause he only has a 90 degree bend  with the braces on and the bus driver makes them sit 2-3 to a seat... he just cant do that, he can sit on the bus if he turns his body sideways.... but they wont let him have a whole seat to himself.... I have to go to the district office on that.... so until I can get him permission, I have to drive him....YAY. 

Alot of weird things have happened in the past few weeks, and Im sur Ill catch you all up on them soon.... some pretty interesting, funny stories... and several frustrating ones.... but for now.... IM BACK!!!!  I have missed you alll so much..... I need to go see what everyone is up to, and how you are all doing. Im sorry if you were worried, Im fine.... T is fine...... We are just waiting for the normalcy to kick in.... Im sick of fighting with insurance companies.... school boards..... teachers..... bus drivers.... creditors..... ect... and Im so happy that i figured out I dont need a new computer... (stupid cable) I have my life line back!!!!!!

Lenore you dont need a husband...... you need a WIFE! 
Diggers mom..... LOL No I have not Snapped yet....but if you see my pic on there.....send me a quick note....k? it could happen soon.... hows John?
Donna    Not in jail..... ha ha If I was , Id still be there cause   I couldnt affort the bail money..... Hubby ok? Ill check your thread and get updated.
George, joanne, Farrah ,Tabitha, Data pop... (hows Annie?)  Sorry I just miss you all.....and Ill post on everyones thread....    HUGS TO ALL>>>>>>>>>

Glad to have you back!!  Glad Tyler is doing so well, ask the PT about doing some foam roller exercises for his tight IT Band.  I have same issue and it does wonders for loosening it up!!

BSG.... He loves the foam rollers... I just cant seem to simulate that one at home.... I can get in there and use my thumbs.... but I have not mastered the rollers yet. I tried a rolling pin, with foam wrapped around it... and I even tried a pool noodle... ...I just let the therapists do this one...                He loves it though... it kinda tickles... in a it hurts kinda way says he....  ????      Glad to be back.

Yay welcome back LORI  ;D

Glad that all is ok! Been so long was getting worried!

I cant believe the bus story! Bloody hell surely thats not legal/safe anyway is it??

Glad T is doing well! Always something that starts to ache after you have had a knee op! I find my hamstrings are the problem for me and also where i had the lateral release......thought was suppose to release yet feels the opposite!!!!!

Will leave you a while as sounds like you very hectic and also got loads of threads to catch up! Dont worry about reading all of mine!!!! You will be there for hours!

My knee is at 90 degrees so me and T are doing well!

Take care and so glad you back!

YAY!  LORI AND T ARE BACK!!!  YIPPEE!!!  HOORAY!!!   

I'm so glad to hear everything is OK.  T is back to school and touring with the B ball team...that's awesome.  It has to kill him that he isn't able to play but at least they are still including him as part of the team.  Hope he's able to catch up on the schoolwork.  Sounds like you're all trying very hard.  Good job!

I know exactly what he means about the rollers, it is definitely a hurts so good kind of thing.  My hubby laughs when I'm on the floor with it 'cause I'm like - ohh, ouch, OWW, oh,....ahhhh.  He says he wonders what I'm doing....oops TMI..... I use it on my quads and hams as well.

I got mine from the PT Palace and they only charged me $14.00 way cheaper than on the web.

Hi Lori,
Welcome back!  Geez i thought we were going to have to make a road trip to make sure you were still alive and well  :)  Glad to hear T. is back and is going to travel with the team.  John is doing okay.  He is definitely sick of being hurt.  I think its hard for him to watch his friends play, but he is a great teammate to them, very encouraging.  I get so sad just watching him keep stats though.  I know I should be happy he's healthy, etc. but I get down about it.  Can't wait to hear some of the stories you have coming.  Have a great night, glad your back I missed you.
