(Well, it lasts actually closer to six and a half or seven hours, but who's counting?) I was amazed that I slept the WHOLE NIGHT, almost seven hours! I did have a lot of pain upon waking, but the meds quickly brought it under control! I feel so much more rested than I have in a long time!
It's upsetting that you're still in so much pain that it requires daily medications to control it. Is it supposed to eventually decrease and go away? I sure hope so. You've had enough suffering.

They're calling for 3 to 6 inches of snow on Saturday ... NO, it's too soon! Too soon! And the possibility of another snowstorm toward the end of next week. Somebody tell the Snow Miser to spread some around to the folks who've been wanting it! We've had our quota for a while.

Going to try a new hair salon closer to home tonight. Wish me luck.

Thats ok, I can relate to that. Sometimes my brain doesn't think as fast as my mouth moves... And that can lead to some interesting moments with the mrs....



And her response:



I guess that says it all......

Beautiful day here! Tomorrow night we are expecting snow flurries! Today I have sat outside on my porch swing soaking up some sun (not too much!) and reading some magazines. We brought our tortoise, Alvin, outside to roam around and soak up some sun too! He loves it out there. Then I went out for a bike ride.

They are interviewing people on the Triumph ship right now by phone on the news. They should have the ship in by this evening. It's really interesting to hear how people are doing on there. It's so weird to see that ship and to know that Wayne and I were on it last year! I know everyone is uncomfortable on there but thank God they are safe!

Now it's time for me to get some chores done!

Have a wonderful day everyone!

Yes, it is supposed to decrease and should have a long time ago. I just could never get on top of the pain completely until now. We are also going to do some x-rays via CT/MRI or something to see if there is a cause for the continued pain. Of course, the thing that comes to mind is bone cancer, but I refuse to allow that to bring me down. Being basically pain-free for the first time in almost a year has really bolstered my spirits today. I mean it; the new meds have made ALL the difference! I feel like one of the lepers, the blind man, or the man who was lowered from the rooftop and healed by Jesus. I just cannot keep from saying how great it is to feel this way and to be almost human again!
