i've been missing you ALL~!

Kiya, did you know that more lumps are discovered by women doing self-exams than by docs and their machines ? and if your Pdoc will certify you as having a relevant psychiatric issue, the insurance must MUST cover the alternative exam. this might just be your last pressure test~!

Gus, I want cake and balloons!

I take Belle to the vet on Monday to get her yearly shots and this time I'm going to ask them to clip her nails. Then I'm going to start working on her socks again. She likes to take one and hide it from me! She knows they are hers. She has been sleeping on her back sideways on her side of the bed and she sticks her head and front paws out from under the covers. She's so cute that way! I will make sure she knows socks are for warmth. She likes to watch me put mine on each day.

I'm so glad to hear from all of you. My depression became much, much worse so I have had to double my medication as of yesterday. It knocks me out! Belle just curls up under her little blanket on my lap and sleeps with me.

Christina, I don't know what kind of shawl you want to make. What an interesting concept. I hope you can do it.

Liz, I checked your blog. I'm patiently waiting for you to write.

Child, it's good to hear from you.

Kiya, it's terrible that we live so far apart. I would go with you.

I have more I'd like to share but I can feel myself getting weak, so I'd better go for now.

I love you all.

I did it !!!!! I made a big chunky throw. Took me about 4 hours but I had to make sure I did each step right. I think it came out really nice

Today I went out and bought 5 more big rolls to start my next one !!!

I have really been hurting but Iím so focused on this new addiction I just get up move around and go right back to it.

My new Rheumatologist office called with my blood work my crp shows ď lotsĒ of inflammation and X-rays show degeneration. He will discuss it with me in 2 weeks. I know he was questioning my PsA diagnosis. But if the sulfasalazine was helping then ???

Ugh Iím sick of not knowing whatís wrong and Iím afraid Iím going to just be told here .... take Lyrica for your fibromyalgia and Iíll see you in X months

Gentle hugs

Congratulations, Christina! Can you possibly post
a pic of your throw?

I hope the Dr. gives you some definitive answers. Please let us know.

Belle has been very sick all night with diarrhea. I have already made rice, which she won't touch and I'm cooking chicken now.
My friend is going to get some plain pedialite for her. I have no idea what caused it. Good thoughts and prayers are sure appreciated.

I'm alive but barely. Have bronchitis real bad for the last 3-4 weeks. Finely went to the doctor last week but the meds are not working. It's 2:37 am here and the cats got me up at 12:30 am I more then likely will not be able to sleep until hubby leaves for work in 3 hours and then it will only be for a couple of hours.

The muscle pain is real bad and with all the new laws I can't take more normal muscle relaxer because it's now not allowed with my seizure meds. Hmmm been taking it for 10 years but that doesn't seem to matter. I can't keep up with all the new rules for medicine and the pain is relentless

Liz i am glad you started the blog I hope you are not over doing it

Jan Belle will get used to the socks it just takes time

Gus thank you for all of the pictures they mean a lot

Kiya you stay strong

Christina awsome job making the blanket. I can't wait to see pictures.

If I missed anyone I am sorry.

I care and love all of you

Cake, it is so good to hear from you! I am so sorry you are suffering so much. Gentle hugs to you, my friend.


Thank you for the pics, Gus. Please don't overdo it trying to shovel that snow. Please be careful.

Belle is eating a few kibbles now, after encouragement. She won't drink Pedialite, and after smelling it, I can't say I blame her. She is playing some and that's a good sign.

The pdoc doubled my Effexor ER. It knocks me out and I can't even hear the phone when it rings. I hope I get used to it soon. I haven't been on the new dose for a week yet.

All of you take good care of yourselves. I love you!
