Dear Erin, Ducky, and all, Well, Monday finally came and I got me shot in the shoulder today.(Cortisoneand something else). He also gave me forty oxycodone for pain. He said 3 or 4 days and I should be feeling like new. I certainly hope so as we will be driving to Florida during those 3 days to see my daughter and five grandkids. My other daughter will be there too along with her 3 kids. We're staying in a motel but very close to all of them. It has been 5 years since we were all together at one time. As soon as I get back he wants me to make arrangements to have my left knee operated on. Those of you who know me know I need a revision on a failed knee replacement. He said its very bad and could collapse and break at any time. If that would happen then he couldn't take care of it, I would have to go to a doctor in St. Louis at Barnes Hospital. Always something to worry about isn't there? I hope you are all feeling well and having a great day. Luv and Hugs, Nic yeah

Dear Ducky, Erin, and all, I can't see much difference as yet in my shoulder, but he said it may take 2 or 3 days so I'm not giving up  yet. I'm mad at my orthopedic doctor right now. I felt like he talked down to me. So what else is new right? The orthopedic surgeons in that group all believe they are right up there with the almighty, and I hate that attitude. Anyway, if you want some relief I guess you put up with it or find another doctor. That isn't always the easiest thing either. Well, tomorrow we leave on our trip so I probably won't be posting for a while , but I'll certainly be thinking of all of you and praying that you have some pain-free days and nights. Luv and Hugs, Nic
