Meant to check in with you, it's been a wild, crazy, very very busy day...wasn't hardly home at all. Did peak in at the posts a couple of times, just no time to write anything. Glad to see it wasn't too horrible for you, hopefully, the sleep thing won't continue. I seem to remember some people, posting about vivid dreams, and interupted sleep before, now that you mention it. Maybe imarzz? If she reads this, she may chime in.
Anyway, have a good night all...will try and check back tomorrow.
Hugs to all,

Hi all! I'm alive and well and wanted to say hello.
I"m about 2 threads behind, so forgive me if I'm not up-to-date on everyone.
I took a nasty spill the day after Easter and sprained my right ankle badly and banged up my left knee. Both are stilll bothersome! We have been having weird nasty weather....cold/hot/cold/hot...not helping my situation. I also have a nasty cold. <sigh>My contract ended. however, they asked me to come back. I have this week off while they do the paperwork and I return next Monday. No more OT for me thought. I hope it's just a short-term thing. I'm ready for a long-term break (I think! let's see how this weeks goes!)
Hope youare well. Someone mentioned vivid dreams. When I was on Remicade I pretty much has hallucinations. It was freaky.
momma hen here checking in! Yeah, you know I do worry about everybody, you're all like my family...I really mean it! Actually, I was thinking of changing my name to Lounge Lizzard or something in honor of my geckos.....Ducky..Sleepless in Carolina..sounds like a movie lol. Seriously, how was the trip? You had trouble sleeping last week too, didn't you..think it might be the mtx? If so, sure hope it passes! Oh, those pics were adorable!!!!!! Thanks so much for sharing. Mom, can't say that was a side effect of the Celebrex that I ever noticed...but...between my endless coffee cup and my natural hyperness...maybe I wouldn't know the difference? Did you check with the pharmacist to see if it could be from the meds? Belated Happy Birthday to you!!!!! What a nice way to spend it, at the movies with your daughter....love my boys dearly..but always wished I had a daughter to share the "girlie' stuff with. Maybe that's why I ended up in daycare with all these little girls to snuggle. Joan...so glad the tens unit is helping, so glad you are finally getting some relief from your pain...Yally...hey girl...I'm still jealous...grrrrr...just kidding you know..LUMI . Sj, ok, one week under your belt...next one won't be as bad..now you know you can do it...so very happy that's behind you, now you can put your mind to rest a bit. hey..you're a vet now...I gotta catch up...congrats!
Yeah!! CaMama's back!! I'm so glad to see you here, but am so sorry you hurt your knee and ankle!! How are you doing otherwise....taking good care I hope? How's the little ones????
haven't heard from Erin lately ..been wondering about her, too...if anyone hears anything, please let us know, ok? How about our dear bear and boo? Been missing them both. Glad you chimed in Mary! So good to have you back on the thread.
Well, guess I better go...another mile-long post here...Helped one of the boys put up a fence around his yard on Saturday...(see, no girlie stuff here lol)...then all the usual weekend errands... I blink and it's Monday morning again. ugh. Trying to get up at 5am(yikes!) to exercise and walk with a neighbor....we'll have to see how long this lasts....
Have a peaceful night all...hugs..Jody

Thank you Yally, you are such a sweetie I'm happy your prime rib turned out so well, and I hope you and your hubby had a wonderful dinner..Here it is almost 80, but tomorrow SNOW enjoy your almost 60 degrees
Jody, I don't know what it is about the celebrex, just makes the chest/heart feel funky..I can't imagine taking two per day..It was a great evening with my little girl, earlier in the morning we had a family birthday breakfast, and on Friday night went out for dinner..hubby felt bad that he had planned a concert on my actual birthday.
Camama..it is so good to hear from you, sounds like an awful fall!!! a few years ago I fell down the stairs and ended up missing the last four, and tore all the ligaments in my foot, it took a good year for it to heal..Are you doing physical therapy? Congrats on the renewal of your contract!
Not much news to report other than my knees hurt when I walk, tomorrow is a visit to the doctor and not sure what he will say about the knees especially now that I am also on the Enbrel, afterall it should at least help with knee pain!
Just a quick post here , the kids are getting up...the doc did tell me that Celebrex can effect the heart rate....we were careful about using it because I have an issue with that already. Did it always bother you like that, or is that new? Probably something you should discuss with the doc. Gosh wish we had your 80"s!!! You and Yally are both warmer than we are today...do you believe that?? We were supposed to be lucky to hit 65 today, have a very chilly breeze. Only 40 degrees in the morning brrrrrr. ( I know, I know, you all feel real sorry for me, right? lol)
Let us know how the appt goes tomorrow, ok? I go next Monday.
As for the Celebrex, yes that is usually what happens and I think it is one of the side effects, that is why I don't take two! I would never sleep! and I already have insomnia, and I think that is from the MTX, and I think someone is having insomnia from the MTX? yes that is what led me to the Lunesta (I think) initially I couldn't stay awake but that went away pretty fast!
I will keep you updated! I'm wondering now about the tens unit? but I looked it up and it is like an electric shock? that sounds a bit scary...don't know if I could do that?
