Thanks for the condolences, Duck, (sniff, sniff) we're crying here in the Florida version of Packerland.  But, congratulations to you Giants fans.  We had all the Wisconsin essentials, Packer gear, brats, burgers, lots of cheese, just don't know where we went wrong..haha. Gosh, those guys all looked frozen!

So, so glad you're feeling better!!!!  How are the kids? Yally's  right, as usual, you have been missed, very much. How many more days is it before hubby gets home?  Not too long now, is it?

Yally, hugs to you dear...and please do let us know as soon as you are able that all is well, you know that we love you too! 

Going to go and hit the hay, tomorrrow is going to be a busy day,

Hugs to you all,

Jody

Hey Yally,

Just wanted to let you know I'm thinking about you and will say a prayer.  I'm sure you'll be fine.

Take Care,

Way to go Yally, it willl all pass in a twink. God luck although I am sure you won't need it. I missed the game last night? I went to a gig with the cub to se a band from Birmingham Alabama called Maylene and the Sons of Disaster and we had a ba;;. The cub as eveer got o talking with the band and they couldn't believe his dad was at a gig with him and they all wanted to meet with me!! A nicer bunch of rednecks you couldn't have asked to meet. I thuoght they were excellent musically but the vocal style leaves soemthing to be desired bt hey, we can't have everything caan we?
How many days and counting Ducky?
Raven hope yu have fully recovered from your noomonya and are enjoying your music again! must sen you more photos.
To everybody else much love peace and affection from the Bear of Apsley.
Stay well peeps

Hey Erin,

I've been searching for the A&E  Intervention episode that you spoke about a few weeks ago.  Do you remember, was the girl a gymnast at some point?  If this is the one, it's on again Feb 25th at 8:00pm Eastern Time.  Let me know if this is the one, I really want to see it.  You can check at aetv.com, they show small clips.

Thanks

Raven

hi ... i really have the virus from hell and don't know what i am doing half the time. fall into these sweats. am on my end of pain cycle from the shingles which by the way i have to drive to see another doctor about. i am very tired and have a loss of ambition except to find out if there is any hope for me being shingle pain free. I understand the pain can make you nutty and between lyrica and patches and cough medicine I wish I could collapse entirely but keep trying to look at the bright side. Today the sky is a pretty blue. o well THE GIANTS won. Ain't that a good thing. They are THE NEW YORK GIANTS or so I have heard. To me those football players are really crazy but they do bring home very substantial paychecks.

Peace to all.

Yeah!!  That is the best news, had you on my mind and in my prayers all day today...sending the biggest hug your way.

Joan, gosh, I'm so sorry to hear you're sick, too...this has been the worst winter! Seems like this stuff just hangs on and on. Hope you feel better.

Have a good night, all

Jody

say a little prayer for me too...have to see another medicine man for post shingles pain today. My doc said just take all the asthma stuff for the yuck. This is the yuck virus. I am yucked out and hope somebody knows something for me. This medicine man is a neurologist. My wonderful librarian got me a very good book on the shingles which has been hard to understand. Since it is in my back, I guess anything goes. Am working on several projects. The birds are flying around and it is really pretty out. eyes eyes eyes

My goodness Joan, this has been a terrible winter for you.  I've heard shingles can be the worst.  The pain lasts forever..............  Sending gentle hugs and prayers your way.  Hopefully this will pass soon.

Take care,

 Raven

eyes   eyes eyes no yally I have been pain free from post shingles neuralgia since 12/23 in terms of my back.  Then I got painful tingling on leg and stabbos in the groin.  After that I came down with the yuck.  The doctor (neurologist) did not know alot about the shingles.  I tried to explain it to him.  I think he just got off the boat frankly.  Everything was like that and and the medical receptionist from Guaunha asked me the name of the virus I had.  I told her nobody gave it a name yet.  She also did not know what date the first Tuesday in March was.   She had never heard of Ireland. I got to have a good lunch out though, so that was worth the trip, I supppose.  Peace and hugs everybody.  My spirometer is showing improvement.

Wow you guys, is there something about living in New York? Just kidding you know. I feel so badly that both of you are having such a tough time of things...Joan, yes, you have been in my prayers also....pray for everyone on the board, I just hate it when ANYONE is suffering! Don't you love it when you go to the docs, and you have to explain things to them?? Gosh that's rough, I sure hope they can find some answers for you, and am glad that your breathing is improving!
Yally, so glad to see your post...was going to give you a call later to check on you...How long are you off work? I hope the pain isn't too bad...and that the family is spoiling you like you deserve!!
Erin are you having a rough time, too? You must know how much we all missed you, and worry about you when you're so "quiet"
Raven, I think my kids caught that A&E show, we were talking about it last night, they said that girl was either a cheerleader or a gymnist. I'm going to try and catch it too, the kids said it was a good show, they both felt really badly for the girl and the way she was treated. How have you been feeling, by the way? All recovered from the pneumonia? I think maybe the plaquenil is finally starting to help some, but boy it's been a long time, was almost giving up hope. Did your doc ever mention enbrel to you? I think our meds are pretty similar, was just wondering if they were thinking of trying you on that as well.
Ooops, one of the little ones is up, gotta go.
Hugs to all the rest of you...will check in later!
Jody

Hey Jody and all of the gang at HW,

The pneumonia is all cleared up.  My rheumatologist did mention Enbrel but he was going to wait and see how eveything is by next appt in March.  At my last appt my inflammation was still very high/  I don't know if the Plaquenil is working for me though.  I still have a lot of pain most days.  The exhaustion is worse though.  I'm not sure about anything thses days.  I have an appointment with a doctor that specializes in pain management, I hope he can help.  I take oxycontin 20mg every 12 hours and my doctor increased it at my last visit to 40mg q 12 hours but it's too much.  I can't function with that much meds in me but I'm in pain all of the time.  i've tried some of the other meds like gabapentin, tegretol and Lyrica but can't take any of them.  i had headaches constantly and eye twitching as well.  The celebrex doesn't really help either and  my fingers look like sausages most times.  My shoulders are the worst right now. 

Anyone have any suggestions as to what works?  My Rheummy thinks that if we just keep tweaking the meds things will get better but it's a long time to feel this crappy.

Thanks to everyone for letting me whine and vent.  I'll update tomorrow after my appointment

moanin everyone! smurf    hows everyone doing these days?????  where have all the children gone?????  so many of you are mia?  i certainly hope it is because you are either so busy or bored your not posting, please not because of feeling ill?
 
well i am on the road to recovery and almost feel like my aching self again.  was able to get out of bed myself this morning and it didnt have to roll out! teehee.  trust me you had to be there when i did!  anyway the stomach is getting better and more accomadating to my movements.  sneezing is still the worst!!!!!!
 
raven, your body sounds so much like mine!  you know the best thing for the shoulder pain is the lidoderm patches!!!!  i dont know if you have tried them yet, they are usually rx'd for shingles- right joan- but they work great on my shoulder and i gave some to my mil for her ankles and she loved them and today is asking her doc for some.  it is a topical analgesic, ok i blew that spelling, but i so gives your shoulders a break.  trust me i know about shoulder pain! 
my fingers and knuckles are blown up too!   the anethesiologist (gosh no spelling bee here today) had such a hard time finding my vein on the top of my hand because my knuckles were so swollen.  i told him give me some enbrel and you will see skinny fingers and knuckles again!!!!!!  for me enbrel is a gift from the pharms.  i only hope it works as well when i get to start my meds again mid feb.! skull   one more month to wait to heal and then pharmacuticals (again with the big words) here i come!
 
joan, sorry i sometimes have trouble rememebering facts - i guess no matter where the shingles are on the roof or the back door it aint no fun! 
 
boo where are you????? havent heard much from you as of late?????  hope all is going well
 
jody how you feeling sweetie?  any results from the ctscan yet?????

Good afternoon all,

A miracle has occurred in Florida!! I got all of the kiddos asleep at the same time....this does not happen often..yeah!  I reallly needed this today though, it's been a wild and crazy week.  Think the full moon makes everybody, especially the little ones, revved up and a bit ornery.

Oh Yally, so glad you are feeling better...had a good laugh picturing you rolling out of bed. Only because I can SO relate about the difference manuvers it sometimes take to get your body moving after surgeries, etc.  No  results yet from the scan, they said my doc should have results in about a week, and that was Monday, so who knows?As far as the rest of me goes, I must be doing ok.  When I read about how badly everyone here is hurting, my aches and pains feel very small by comparrison. Not as good as I want to be, but not as bad as I've been.  Guess that sums it up as good as anything . Oh yes, to Idol...love to watch good old sarcastic Simon...he cracks me up when he's not being too mean.  Reminds me of our buddy House.

Raven, I pray the doc was able to help today!  Please don't ever feel bad for venting,  that's what we're all here for..to be a cyber-shoulder when we need one.  If we can't be real here and let it all out, where else is there?  That's what I love most about this place, everyone understands, cares, and is so supportive. It IS a long time to be hurting and that in itself is hard to get through sometimes.  I think it's almost impossible to keep our spirits up all the time, faced with all this.  Sometimes we just have to let ourselves feel bad and grieve a bit.  You've got all of us to help you hang in there.  Hey.....I saw on one of the other posts that you just had a birthday..so HAPPY BIRTHDAY a bit late!  You should have told us..Yally makes and incredible computer cake!!  No kidding, she does an awesome job, just wish we could really eat it haha.

Joan, hope you're feeling better today!  Have to check out that vaccine you were talking about..wonder if that's something we all need?

Hugs to all the rest of you...you're all missed, alot......We are really threadbare!!  (that was bad, I know, couldn't help myself)

Love,

Jody
