Knee injury update, Mom and Mr. Jones Visit

I finally have had my MRI reviewed. They verified I do have a torn meniscus, how long ago did I know this? In any event I now have an appt. with Orthopedics on the 30th to see what they are going to do. From what I understand there isn't a lot that can be done, but hopefully they know more than me. On the 31st I'm also having my eyes checked. If the lenses of my eyes are thick enough, and my eyes are bad enough, they will send me to Ft. Hood for PYK (lasik) surgery, all on the Army of course. I know my eyes are bad enough, I've been told before, but I've never had the lenses measured so I'm anxious to see what the results will be. 

Also Grandma and Grandpa Jones came down Tuesday for a visit. We went to Alamogordo yesterday to see the Toy Train Museum, a small Zoo that was excellent, and White Sands. I've never been to any of these places and it was a great trip. I've got about 400 photos to go through that are basically just yesterday and today (we went bowling today). We've been having fun all together and tomorrow is their last day here because they are moving on very early Monday morning. It will be very bittersweet because as much as we don't want to see them go Monday will be good for me since I'm still off work on my four day and the kids will be back in school.

I'm going to try to add some photos, just a few because I have such trouble with it, but hopefully they'll show up well.

HI Jesse: So glad you finally had
your MRI read. If they do surgery,
I heard that's really successful.
We pray they do the best thing for
you so you get relief. Also be
praying for your eye exam. Let us
know. The pictures of great of your
folk's visit. Looks like you all
had a lot of fun and made great
memories. The kid's looked like they
had a ball. You do have some neat
places not to far from El Paso. Our love to each and all of you
always and all ways.

Hi Jesse:

I had given up checking your blog for updates about 3 months ago and just today checked for the fun of it ... and found this post! We are at Adam and Emily's house until tomorrow morning. I'm glad you had fun with us being there ... and I'm glad you also had an extra day to just hang out with Diana and Matthew before having to return to regular "work." Mr. Jones and I have taken about 3500 photos during the past 3 weeks that we will have to go through and edit, etc. once we get back to GR ... but I love editing photos and re-living all of the great times we had with everyone. Let us know what they decide about your knee and eyes ... wouldn't it be nice to have better-functioning eyes?! Wow. I never thought Lasic surgery could help eyes that were as bad as yours ... that would be very cool. Much love to you!
