Yep...I got a phone call today. I've been booked as an emergent case first thing monday morning I've got a loose screw that needs to come out ASAP. That would explain why I have been so sore for the last couple weeks, go figure.
I was supposed to fly out on vacation for 2 weeks on sunday, I guess I'll be staying home now.

Wish me luck

There's not a whole lot worse than having a screw loose! Good luck with that.
And didn't want to leave on vacation, anyway.....

Wow. At first I thought you were joking about the loose screw. I wish you luck and hope everything turns out okay. Where is this screw located?

Kelly, I wish you a speedy recovery and lots of good ju-ju!!! (OK, I have to admit, the loose screw part had me giggling a little...)

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

Come on! you all knew I had a loose screw, not news to anyone thank you so much everyone for all the support. A blessing is disguise really to get this done so quickly just wasn't expecting it.
I didn't have insurance on the plane ticket but was able to guilt the operator into giving me a refund back(another blessing really). I guess I'll have to trut my butt in California some other time

Thank you for all the support everyone, you are all fantastic (as always) one of those weeks it seems.
