I admit I do it for selfish reasons--it feels wonderful to do so. When my four kids were younger, I could not have done it, but so many people helped ME out. I don't feel guilty when I can't do it every day; but I do feel great when I can! I think I told you guys about the young man who paid for our Valentine's Day dinner (can't remember if it were last year or the year before). He also paid for another couple's dinner at the same time, plus his own. That was so special, and I remembered how I felt. I just want others to have that same happy feeling. I honestly wish there were a way to do it more often and to pay it forward HERE!!! The best we can ALL do is to continue to treat each other with respect because paying it forward does not have to involve money--that's the good thing. We can offer our services to those who need them, use our talents. Like what Star and MC do and what CAH does when she babysits. Tutoring is another way to pay it forward!
Very nice, for being such a meany!!!

Ha ha! You know I'm kidding, just playing on what title you were given. You are a very sweet person!

Agreed! The whole world should be jolly like us. =)

I get it now! I have been suffering "sympathy pains"! Now that you are feeling better, so am I!

I am the same way! One of the best Mother's Day gifts I got is when my kids and grandchildren showed up at my job (since I work Sunday-Mother's Day) and surprised me. No gifts, just a visit and we toured the store looking at the animals there. I now look forward to a visit each year. I actually enjoyed that more than any bought gift they gave me. I am working so hard then stop for a hug from all of my kids and a visit. Gets me back in the groove of working after they leave!

He does think there is probably a little bit of neuropathy in her leg since she has been having problems with it going numb and tingling for a while but he doesn't think that it would have gotten that much worse that quick.

Her writing is a little better today and her balance is okay but she seems to shuffle her right foot instead of lifting it up when walking.
my mom went through the same thing back in October and is now doing great. She is off all meds and back to her old self again. She is 82 years old.
Let your mom know to follow all doctors orders and keep up the walking. Will pray that her recovery goes well.

Oh yeah! I love my doctor!!! He is awesome so I don't want anyone to think I was being critical of him. My situation is just a mystery! One thing he has said recently is that I'm underweight but then my stomach problems and food allergies keep me from being able to eat what I want to eat and have trouble eating a lot at once, then could lead to deficiencies that we can't quite pinpoint, etc. etc. etc. and on and on and on. You get the picture? lol! This is not over yet, still working out a few things, still doing a lot of research but I think I am headed in the right direction. So in a way, I have become my own doctor! =)

I had good energy today at the gym. At one point I started to feel a little sluggish and got a little concerned hoping it was temporary. After I rested a little and refueled with some water and snacks I was okay! In the past, NOTHING worked! I am being cautiously optimistic and hope it continues to get better!

Okay, enough of that! How are you all today? Got big weekend plans???

Thanks. They told us they won't have the results of the MRI until thursday afternoon. So it's going to be a long week.

It doesn't help that her insurance is terrible and they have to get the MRI pre approved. They could have gotten her in today if it wasn't for that.
