bear, bear, bear, i cant bare the fact that you dont know about hockey!!!!!! actually i think it originated in canada? or at least canada is a major hockey mecca. being that i live on the us canadian border hockey is a big sport in the area. plus our football team has sucked that last few plus plus years but we strived for 5 in football lol.
now if u r pulling my leg and know what this sport is - shame on u! i am nieve. but if not....it is played on ice with skates and you try to score a goal with a puck and stick! at the end of the season a few teams make it to the finals and try to win lord stanleys cup! it is a huge honor like? .... wimbelton? idk? anyway our city is in the playoffs and it is big bussiness. you dress up around town in sabres team colors and often wear sabres team jerseys and if a nut like my teenage daughter paint ur face yellow and blue and go nuts in support of our team in the playoffs! many people in town do not shave suring the playoffs! you see tv personalities, news anchors, etc. not shaving as a superstition to loosing! i hope you can somehow get the game tonight it will be a great one! honest these two teams are going head to head to win this round and the games have been outragous! double overtime etc!!!!! so everyone join me in cheering on the buffalo sabres!!!!!!!!! say it together.....

lets go buffalo! lets go buffalo! ice time is 7pm est and that is where i will be!

I watched whoever.. :) I guess since I'm in SC I should root for the Hurricanes.. but eh... I don't know.. For you my dear Yalinda.. I will root for the Sabres.. Woo-hoo!

Hi there everybody ahd you all gong for a while with this hockey thing. It's not big here in the UK but my son likes watching for the sheer brutality ever since I let him watch Slapshot. Unless it is played at the highest level, for the non-afficienado, it can be dull watching. Now don't having a go at me here - I knowthat this applies to most sports. But cricket! Now there is a cerebral game for the non-afficienado. Ever had trouble sleeping? Watch the English Cricket team. You will even laugh in your sleep. For the uninitiated these are the rules pared down.
 
You have two sides, one out on the field and the other in.
Each man in the side that's in goes out, and when he's out he comes in, and the next man goes in till he's out.
When the side that's in is all out, the side that been out comes in and the side that been in goes out and tries to get out the side that's coming in.
Sometimes you get men still in and not out when the side that is in is finally out. When both sides have been in and out, including those who are in and not out, that's the end of the game.

See? Simple. And they say we Brits are a dul redface   race. Huh. What do they know eh?

What's this got to do wth arthritis you might ask? Nothing but arthur might be more interestng to talk about on a Saturday morning.

Soccer [what a horrible name] or football to us, is the bg hit here and the kids adn adults act just the same as your hockey and football etc fans except over here you can't tel the difference between the kids and the wups. It's tribal and a war substitute. Oh yeh and they occasionally throw in a ball to make it interesting.

Hell, son wants the puter, enjoy the weekend and wil see you all soon.

Stay well.

The Bear

devil  Greeting to all creakers moaners and groaners here is the news from the cave in downtown Apsley. [it's a village actually] It is not sunny. It is not warm. And as I type this it is starting to rain. Ducky, I do hope that your hands are not too sore today [my wife, a buddhist, put in a few chants for you today yeah when II told her your pain was preventing you typing last week] let me know if  it worked okay?
Yalinda, did the Sabres win?
Erin, I do hope that the stone didn't cause you too much trouble after the trauma of passing it. I have a friend who also passed a stone and felt the same way as you did - he thought the world was falling out of ........no let's not go there.
 
It's a public holiday weekend here and after two weeeks of gorgeous weather it decided to get down on everybody and go distinctly bad. Not that it bothers me - I don't have a car to wash, I  have no interest in gardening [but I do mow and dig where I am told to - sorry, asked to] and since the 'thritis got really bad I can't even go for long walks or play golf [which amounted to the same thing the way I played]. I should've had my other hip replaced two weeks ago but I turned it down. I am visiting Washington this July and I wouldn't have been fit enough to travel - cad/cam hips take a hell of a time to bond as there is no cementation. I am attending a conference and presenting a workshop and it means so much to me to be fit to do it. I was pretty cool when I had the first one done but now that I know what it entails I am already starting to pluck up the courage to ahve this next one done - two or three days days on a morphine pump can be fun though tongue .
Haven't quite mastered this ccolour thing yet.
Is it a public holiday in the states or is Mayday celebrations a bit too workercentric? I should know more about what goes on over there but Fox doesn't seem to tell the same stories as the BBC - or not in the same way anyway.
 
How does it work in the states regarding meds and getting hold of them? Does everybody have to have insurance? What about people who can't afford them or are on permanent medicaton lke so many people on this site. The only people who have to pay over here are those in work aand even then prescriptions are subsidised so each time you get a script it only costs about $10 per item.
If you have multi meds you can gget season tickets to to prevent the need to keep going to your GP [MD] all the time.
 
Hey I've just notced there s a game on lvie here - Buffalo V NY Rangers but I'm assuming that is american football. It used to be on the terrestrial channels here in the 80's and 90's and it nearly took off in this country but  not quite. I enjoy baseball after going to a couple of Mets games back in the 80's - great stuff.
Number  1 son wants the broadband line for his msn session so I shall bid you allll a fond farewell,
Time to go said zebedee.
Thank you all for lstening aand I know I ramble on but at least this way I can't see people walk away as soon as I star talking.
Stay well everybody and may your star ever shine on you.

health insurance and the american dream- like u bear and my hubby cant live with it cant live without it! lol ...... i am so worried my employer is holding a meeting this week about our coverage and i am worried we are going to one carrier to save dollars. i am so in trouble if i loose my carrier as my rhuemmy does not take all insurance providers and i have a pre- condition now i dont know if i am covered with RA pre diagnosed. a lot of my coworkers are canadian and i keep saying i am going to move over the bridge for health care but then they say they have problems too! i pay hundreds of dollars a month for insurance plus tons on copays.

Hi yalinda and anybody else reading in. Sorry to hear about your troubles but I suppose I did ask. Some of what you were talking about went over my head maybe because it was insurance terminology. I take it a 'carrier' is one insurance provider or company? You might hear that the main health provision is 'free' here in the UK. Well it is and it isn't. Last month my combined tax and National IInsurance [a government health tax or insurance] was over $1200 - we don't have a local tax but most bought goods and services are levied at      17 1\2%. So in the form of taxation we pay for our health care and like I sad, only those n work make a contribution to prescriptions. I don't know what t would be like to be ill elsewhere. Like so many of your site readers, I have a specialist I see - consultant orthopaedic surgeon for the hips etc and a neurologist for the pd - this sort of thing must cost a bomb off your insurance. I don't envy you. Health care through taxation means you don't see t in the first place and so don't have to find it nor miss it.
 
I didn't watch the game as it was on an extra subscription channel but  it will be reppeated tomorrow on free to air. Thanks foro telling me the result. nono ha ha!
 
My occasional typos are because my fingers  are ahead of my brain - that's one aspect of pd.
I have a friend in Liverpool where I originate from, who, a year ago was in a wheelchair crippled with RA. When I visited last month, he was walking driving and very cheerful. I asked him what was the turnaround and he told me he was asked to take a ew drug which had just become licensed over here last year. I don't know the name offhand but it is in the form of a self administeered injection done weekly. The difference was amazing and if anybody is interested I can find out more. If it is anything like my pd patches it was licensed in the uk before the states. Watch this space unless you already know of something similar.
 
AS YOU CAN SEEIT IS THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT here in downtown Apsley and I can't sleep.
So  shall leave you all with  my best wishes for the coming week and may your stars shne down on you.
G'night
The Bear

Hi Bear! I don't think I've logged on since you first came to our thread! Welcome.

Erin - are u feelin better since the stone passed? I hope so!

Ducky - hope you are on the mend.

Yalinda - my sis in AZ always has season tixs to the hockey games in her area...she won't miss them. She has someone's shirt framed on her wall in fact. Lucky for her, her husband is a big fan as well.  

Had a massive headache yesterday and it lasted thru most of today. My arms and hands have been going numb a lot - this happened in the past as problems with certain meds - could Arava be hitting me this fast? It's only been 2 weeks, I think. Or has it been 3? Anyway, I'm creaking and aching....but doing okay so far (knock on wood).....I see PCP tomorrow and I"m not expecting the best response from her based on all the meds I'm now on and the weight gain since I saw her last.

Felt like a Santa Ana blew in today - the weather itself not too hot or cold, but the hot, heavy winds were here. It's always so weird.

redface  evenin' ya'll
 
Bear...i am so glad you are enjoying this part of the HW Arthritis Forum, it's a nice set of posts as we all get to know each other a little more personally outside our normal "disease related" posts. that and it's fun. :-)
((((((hugs Yalinda!))))))  :-)  yeah, this kiddo here had a rough go of things...kidney stones are the WORST PAIN ever! it make a spinal tap seem like a picnic.  i don't hink i could even get a sentence spoken it was so bad sad .
 
ooh boy what a week.  kidney stones, bleeding, vomiting, fevers eyes pain...and then yesterday all day MORE vomiting. eyes and that just made the back pain from the stones worse.  i hadn't eaten since wednesday nite, so i guess when i did eat saturday...my gut just went "REJECT" & it all came up. so exhausted & joint/ back pain is still unbearable...kinda ticked off i didn't ask to be admitted to the hospital today, i could have used it & i looked really bad so i think he would have OK'd it.
 
went for Remicade today and my doc upped my dose to 600mg Remicade every 3 weeks.  so we tripled my dose. I HOPE THIS WORKS!  received a few bags of fluids & lytes & some Tigan bum-shots.
 
really really tired, feels like it will take a few days to feel even a lil' better.
from the stone i had urinary bleeding wednesday to sunday...guess that only added to my wipe-out. that & i dropped 10 pounds in a few days from being ill.
bu i did wanna come in and say "hi" & let ya know i'm still breathing...it's been a while. 
 
Camama i hope you feel better soon as well. :-) {{{{{ hugs }}}}}
 
wish me luck in trying to get comfy!
peace/love

NO WAY! aaaaaaaah, is that what back pain means?  still more stones in there???  (i don't know much about anything related to this, so yeah...go ahead & nurse the nurse!)
the surgeon & my GI doc mentioned that the wicked back pain in the kidney area would last a while (last time it was bad for 2 weeks).  i was under the impression that it was just a result of the passing.
 
but anywhoo...aaargh, my mom threw out my cup of pee w/ my stone! mad dang-it! and i was supposed to bring it t the lab! mad
 
i have a cat, Nora, who lives in my backyard...she just had babies last week! they are so cute! there's 3 or 4 of them...can't really see em' all for they're all dog-piled on top of one another, lol.
yikes, i ate like there was no tomorrow yesterday!  the Tigan worked! not too much sleep though, ready to go back to bed now.

Oh Erin...Stones are miserable!! My daughter had them last summer, and when she went to the ER, nobody could figure out what was wrong with her because she was 9, and a child doesn't get stones. Ha! She had stones.. She had to take so much pain medication and it hardly touched her pain..bless your heart, you must be miserable. I'm so sorry! And if you have passed one, you may have more:( my daughter passed 3 before she was finished.

Yalinda...I can't believe how stiff you are...I hope your doc, does something for you..are you on Remicade or anything like that? it sounds like it is time for drastic measures.

I hope everyone else is hanging in there..

Hi everybody, welcome to the cave. Erin. kidney stones are a bummer but I am surprised that having passed one your medics are not actively seeking others. Treatment over here foor stones includes zapping them with utra sound until they are of a sze where passing the remains s not such a traumatic experience as the first time. Knowledge that there maybe more can make it more agonising than having them. It is  the constant anticipation etc. that makes it worse I presume. But doo ask about ultrasound. It breaks the stones up inside the kidney.
There was an article in the papers over here some time ago about somebody who passed so many stones she turned them into a charm breacelet!!!!!!! Some charm.
Yaliinda how's teh apinting coming along? I'd use a can of spray paint if it were me - sod the pain make for the gain. Either that or dip the dog's tail in the paint and set him a wagging.
Yes I am heading for Dubya's back garden but I don't think he'd invite the likes of me n to afternoon tea. It was reported here that the big faux pas commited was to leave the tea bag in Lizzie's tea cup.
It's just not done old chap don'tyaknow. Very bad form but didn'tDubya scrub up well- at least he didn't wear cowboy boots with the tux.
No, I'm attending a conference run by Generations United a big not for profit org based in Washington, so I shall be 'in residence' at the Hilton on the Hll for the last week in July. I only wanted four days for the conference but it was cheaper to stay an extrathree nights than it was to get the flights I really wanted. Can you believe that? I will have to put up wth the hardship of an extra three nights with a swimming pool on the roof. The things I do to earn a crust. The ebst we run to here in downtown Apsley is a small Holiday Inn and believe it or not it costs more to stay in Apsley than in the Hilton Washington. Ripoff UK and welcome. Let's all aprty out in Dubya's garden.
I'm really looking forward to going and I'm just hoping my health holds out - I turned down a hip replacement last month to ensure I would be fit to go. I do have concerns about needing medical treatment should anything go wrong while I am there. Nuff siad for now.
See you all soon.
Stay well
The Bear yeah

Hello All, Been up to my elbows in water and mud around here.  Okie State being flooded and we live next to North Canadian river.  Getting pretty interesting and scary.  Water is not running off my flat, horse-pounded acreage. 

Yalin, I'm so sorry your hands are giving you such fits.  I haven't been able to make a fist or hold on to coins for years.  Those youngsters at the grocery are just going to have to wait on us to count change.  It used to bother me and I'd try to hurry and get out of folks' way by giving bills and not counting change.  Now I just take my time.  My purse gets too full of dimes and nickles. 

Erin Girl!  What are we going to do with you?  You have a great sense of humor even with everything that's going on.  Bless you!

Bear, I'm sure enjoying your posts.  I love hearing your descriptions and how things are in the UK.  Giving a little charm to this old farm girl. 

CaMamma, come do my kitchen!

More thunderstorms due in today.  Not much sleep last night as the thunder keeps me awake wondering if my house will be struck.  Twisters all over the state and like I said the river is a'risin'.  Three young men decided to float the river yesterday and capsized.  Only two have been found.  They were alive but not much hope for finding the third alive.  TV reporters, helicopters and rescue peeps all over the place out here into the night.  The river will probably crest sometime today.  We are high enough but the folks across the road aren't.  Touch and go.  Feast or famine.  We've been in a major drought for over two years and now this.

I see my PC on Friday and he will be getting an earfull.  He's great and has been my champion for years.  My rheumy and I are going to have a "come to Jesus meeting" if he doesn't pull his head out pretty soon.  I'm seriously thinking of dropping him.  PC has helped me more than anyone. 

OK, dump session over.  Thanks, Boo

erin bear said exactly what i wanted to say- get a sonogram and blast any remains! now not to scare anyone but both my father and a best friend died from gall stones- which are not kidney stones but still.... not to mess with i am certain. my dad and a friend thought they were all gone and low and behold a little sucker stuck in the pancreatic duct..... sepsis set in and a point of no return. u may think i am cruely writing this down dont get me wrong i miss my dad and would trade anything to have him back but reality is he is gone from gall stones so pepes dont mess with it! esp since 2 years ago a dear friend had the same occurance at age 50 and he is gone and also dearly missed. in both cases they thought the buggers were all gone but they hid and caused havoc. idk if kidney stones can be as lethal?
bear- we should have just served her coffee! when in rome do as the romans and a latte would have left a nice creammy mustache on everyones face! lol

Flood and famine what the hell is going on in Boo land? We have similar phases of weather over here - drought conditions and water rationing in places in the summer and too much rain in the winter - including floods. The problem we have is the water companies would rather pay shareholder dividends rather than repair the antiquated Victorian pipes that are still under most of our cities - bummer! Like Boo in Okie the ground gets hard through weeks of drought type conditions and then when the rain does come it either runs straight off and is wasted or just sits there and pretends its a water garden. Being Brits we haven't got a clue really how to deal effectively  with it because, well because!! We're Brits and these things don't happen to us - they happen to other people - in other countries - so we can remain detatched from other people's needs. No, don't get me going down that road!
 
Hey Boo, when you talk about the people 'across the road' how many miles away is that? I once travelled across Montana on a bus and if Okie is anything like Montana neighbours must be a long way off!! But seriously. it must be very scary just sitting there watching the waters rise knowing there s nothing you can do but hope and chant or something. Talking of twisters - we have had a number of them in recent months - one wrecked half a road in Birmingham and that's the UK's 2nd largest city!!! Solid Victorian terraced brick houses with the fronts simply torn off, leaving them looking like a dolls house. 
 
The latest news from the cave in downtown Apsley is that it is no longer illegal here in the UK to sell fruit and veg in pounds and ounces!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
For the last few years it has been illegal under Eurpean Union legislation to sell food using Imperial weights and measures. For the life of me - I don't know why - but beer was exempted, now there's a thing. The phrase 'I'm just going down the pub for a half litre' just didn't catch on. Poor dears, it gives the bureaucrats something to do in Brussels alll day.
 
Oh I'm just waffling now. Yalinda just cover the floor with paper and do a Jackson Polllock. Wastes paint, sure, but think of the neighbours talking point.
And finally. For those who, like Erin and Ducky who find keyboarding such a pain. There is amazing free software that can be downloaded to allow hands free typing. All you need to do is buy the hardware - you know, the earpiece and microphone. The new software doesn't even rely on voice recognition like the older stfuff so no more reading out loud for half an hour in to the computer. [Never trust  a man who moves his lips while he reads!!] Again, if you're interested let me know and I shall get the names of the best software from IT where I work. Because of the pd I will have to use this myself.
 
Enjoy your brunch everybody and remember this. If you have trouble with your MD remember that half of all doctors came in the bottom 50% of their class - where did yous come?
Peace and Happiness to all.
