Balls - I just lost another post through my blasted fiingers not dooing what they were told. Liverpool went well and the cub has decided that it is wwhere he would like to go to university but he now knows after his latest exam rsulkts that he cannot wing ijt anymore and that he must now work his butt off for the next two years or it will e no go. One great sadness whilst there was the shooting dead oof a 11 year old playing soccer in the street - thought to be a gang initiation test, some test, committed by anothre youth maybe 15 or 16. What has surprised ands hocked me is that people are not coming forward with information. What kind of society are we developing into?

How is everybody? Erin you are one tough cookiie - I go in you come out but I am not made of the same stuff as you, you must have resilience by the bucketful to cope. I'm startig to get quite apprehensive about this op and I don't have any reason to be as I have had one successfully done already. Maybe it is because I know now what it involves. Can I borrow some of that reilience for awhile???

Whatever my thoughts on the middle east I do hope that your hubby comes back safe in mind and body Ducky and that youo never have to go. It's all very well teh politicos pontificatinjg from afar and even when it was their turn to go in days of yore their well placed poppas made sure their boys didn't go. Stay safe Ducky.  

Yally - how goes the shoulder? I hope that your daughter doesn't miss you too  much while whooping it up as a fresher - I hear that they get up to all sorts in their first week!!!!!!!!! Of course us bears placed hard work and dilligence above all else when we were studying and we never went near the fermented berry juice and mary jane was a character in a nursery rhyme. But I am sure she will have a whale of a time and be a credit to you both. The house will seem empty for a while - there is always the lodger ahaha!!! tongue tongue tongue
 
Sorry camama = got my wires crossed but I am a bear of little brain after all. eyes
Boo - how goes things with daughter's family and how is your daughter coping or am I getting my wires crossed here as well? Floodwater rising again I see on the news - get the gumboots an stilts out we're going fishing.
 
Will drop by before Tuesday and then it will go quiet for a while as I will be on the ward for at least a week - smurf
 
take care everybody and stay well

Hi everyone,
Glad to see you all back on, misssed everybody!!
Yally, I was really worried about you, girl, so very, glad you are feeling better and at least sounding a little like your old self...how long before your daughter goes to school? Happy vacation!!!!!!!
Erin, boy were you missed, too!! Are you still feeling better? Hope you have a nice, restful weekend...just not the same forum without your wisdom and humor
Boo, you ok? How's your son-inlaw doing? Am sending thoughts and prayers your way, like always.
Camama and Ducky, how'd the first week of school go with the kids? Those days sure seem like a long time ago...I miss them.
Bear, will be thinking of you too, all sorts of good thoughts and well wishes that the op goes well, and that they keep the pain to a minimum for you...you will be missed! Did you say earlier that you and the family are moving in the midst of all of this?
See the doc again on Tues, can't say I'm so wild about the mtx , can't see a whole lot of difference, am I just impatient? Just doesn't really feel like it's doing anything at all. How long do they normally leave you on one med before they add something or change? On the earlier thread, had some questions about all of this. If anybody saw that and has some thoughts, would love to hear them.
Think I need to do some baking therapy today, so it's off to the kitchen to dig into the sugar and chocolate. Happy to share if anyone wants some.
catch you all later, hugs all around,
Jody

oh jody make mine chocolate chip please! lol one thing i dont do is bake often and my kids complain all the time about it. "why do u only bake when we hae company or have to give it away!" lol poor deprived kids

u know jody the mtx takes a while to build up and work, how long are yyou on it now? i think te embrel is working ok right now with the mtx for me but i was on the mtx and pred for 4 months then jujst the mtx like anoher 10 before i went on the embrel but that might of been my lack of complaining correctly. lol who knows i dont wish injections on yu as i hate taking them ugh never been a shot person. i wish you luck

bear u are going to say your final goodbyes before the surgery right???? i thought of u this am as i watched an interview with hugh laurie just loved listening to him talk. he can be funny too! anyway he reminded me a bit of u in the way he answered certain things. and his character does use a cane! u do get house there in the UK? up to date episodes? i know u r not a tv guy but u do have knowledge? when not being used to add to the cave more stone lol get it stoned? lol ok bad joke

well no new embarrasing momens to share to make u all laugh at me but i am certain as the day and week progress i will have done something stupid.

take care everyone, watch for the kiddies getting on and off those buses keep dry if ur flooding and wet if ur boiling in heat. and if lucky to be in my parts emjoy the sunny and 80* degree weather.
hope boo mom23 and el are ok too lata yally

I had trouble posting the other day as well. I was logged on, posted a reply on this thread, but when I hit post it said, 'you are not logged on' The site finally looped and I thought my post was there - but lo and behold, it is not.

I woke up in tons of pain. Yesterday my feet (the tried and true weather detector) told me something was up and sure enough I hear the thunder storms all around us. I can see the rain clouds just a few miles away....somehow, we get all the cruddy rain weather, but no rain - yet I can pretty much SEE the rain pouring from the skies! It's quite baffling.

Bear, I will be wishing you well during your surgery and recovery. YOu have a large support group of prayers and well wishes over here. We'll certianly miss your humor while you recouperate!

Erin, wishing you well w/your infusion tomorrow!
 
Jody - I"m with Yalinda, could you make a few choco chips for us too??? tongue   Hubby just left an hour ago....he'll be gone a week. Kids and I are feeling a bit out of sorts.

No problem guys....chocolate chip just happen to be my specialtiy..today made oreo brownies....new recipie but good!
Yally, been on the mtx about 4 months now...last month the dose got upped a bit. Never had any pred, only used Celebrex on and off along with the mtx. Don't really want to do shots...(.well, not the kind you inject...perhaps some tequilla?)  Just want to find something that will work, if there is such a thing.Need to remember the weather, too...it is hurricane season here, and we've had some stormy days, guess that is adding to the aches, and my moods.
Camama, hope your "single mom" week goes by fast!
Thanks so much,
Jody

So sorry I've been MIA.  Just shower and go to bed.  The heat has been horrible.  Someone came to look at the shop Friday.  Keeping my fingers crossed (I wish I could still cross my fingers). 

Got fed up with the negative vibes around here and packed up and went to the lake Friday after work.  Had a great time, eating, boating, playing cards, etc.  Typical lake stuff.  Hubby pretty hard to live with right now so I gave him a lot of space.

SIL goes into hospital tomorrow for 3 or 4 days......chemo and several days of radiation.  The rest will hopefully be outpatient. 

Bear, you will be in my constant thoughts as you go through this surgery.  I'm hoping and expecting the best for you. I'll be checking back in from time to time.  I'm going to have a very busy and stressful week.  Love to All, Boo

This the Bear from Downtown Apsley posting for the last time for the next 10-14 days at the least as I go in to hozipal tomorrow at 2pm and sometime on Wednesday I have my surgery and they are going to STICK THINGS INTO ME!!!
WAAAAAAAAAAAA what a wuss eh? Erin you afre so funny with yoour bongs - I know you can inhale on one but never bash one lol. Thank you one and all for your kind words and best wishes but it still is chickenfeed compafred to what you all have to to put up with daily/weekly/monthly ad infinitum. And while we are on thhe latin - "non permittus illigitamus carborundum descendum"  - you can work the rough translation out and if there are any smart aarses out there who actually did the classics I know it is only cod latin ok?
Boo you just got to find time to tyourself girl, for whatever reason it doesn't matter, just go, chill, recharge come back and reassess  and move on from there, your son in law is in the hands of a higher force whatever that may be and if it is written he will pull through but if it isn't there is still a life to celebrate and daughter can help greatly in this if only she........... well, if only she will. You may even end up being able to cross your fingers. I notice you say you gave huby his space but remember it is a two way process - he needs to recognise your space also. Counsellor is 'out'.
Camama and Babyspace thanks again you are all so kind and accommodating towards such a pagan as I - just oe more example of the underlying kindness of 'ordinary' Americans that goes unseen and largely unreported in this country, except that you are no 'ordinary' people. Read across the many forums and threeads and you will see what I mean, here endeth te lesson.
Yally when I retire from work and take my road trip in the states upstate new York will be my first stopping off place after Manhatten or maybe we could all meet in NY? Wouldn't that be something and then we cam all break the Forum's rules together hahahaha! lol. You boy! Write out 1000 times 'Thou shalt not.......'  [fill in the blanks]
I shall have my blackberry in the hospital with me so if you all have the heart to send the odd email the address is jmcarthy@csv.org.uk I know it is advised against but I may not be able to access a computer for soem considerable time and so I request the moderators look upon it with sympathy. Many thanks.
 
I leave you all with the following words:

 

I am what I am

Yet what I may become

Still lies at the core of me;

Shaped by the happenings

That mould me and hammer me,

Nurse me and nourish me,

Starve me and fulfil me,

Break me or strengthen me,

Making a whole of me,

Rebel or follower

Sinner or saint of me;

Fighter and dreamer

Comrade or enemy.

Yet what becomes of me,

Still at the core

I am what I am.

 

Love to you all

The Bear

:-)  Bear you will do a fantastic job fret not!  I am currently gonging & bonging away...hee hee hee.  More bongs just this past weekend for good measure, (wink wink).
I will see to it I message you a text!
I know it stinks to "rest" in a hospital, but try your best.
The very best to you Bear.
With love,
erin

Good afternoon all,
Bear, you're making me cry here!! Will be sending messages your way, for sure, and I think your idea for us all to meet in NY is fantastic...wouldn't that be great? I would dearly love to meet all of you face to face. If anyone ever finds their way to Florida....
We may be a long way away, but we are all with you in our hearts.
Erin, How did the remicade go? Sure hope you are resting too. Your posts are seeming more and more like your old self...perhaps you're feeling a little better??
Boo, will be praying that buyer comes through for you, you sure do need a break, glad you got a chance to get away for a bit. Please keep us posted on your son-in-law and daughter, think of you all so often. How is your mother-in-law doing?
So wish there was something we could do to help you through all of this...
One of the little ones I have watched for four years started pre-school today, almost like one of my own. That's the hard part of my job, I get so attached, but can't help it when they are here everyday. On Wednesday start a new 1-year-old. Tiny little thing, no bigger than a minute, but hope it all goes well.
So jealous of your vacation, Yally!!!! But glad for you.....don't know when I've had two whole weeks off at once. Hard to do that in my line of work. Hope you enjoy every minute of it!
Hope all is well with everyone else, have a peaceful night.
Jody

Jody, I used to nanny a few kids many years ago. Saying good-bye was very hard!

Erin, I hope the Remicade has started kicking in already!

Hi everyone,
Erin...so glad you are feeling better!!!!!  Also glad you are giving the pain meds a chance...hated to know you were hurting so ...hope this works for you.Kittens sound adorable!!  Just love our animals here, too, they all crawl up in bed every chance they get.   Hear ya about the weekends...just had to have a margarita with dinner Satuday night..was So good. Doc said that once in a while was ok, even with the mtx.
How is everybody else doing?  Boo, Yally, Ducky, El?
CaMama,How are you and your daughter?  Did you ever get the strep test? thankfully no bad storms here, but that can change in a minute.Hope it holds out, although the heat and humidity makes for miserable joints.  We have a cold front coming this weekend, supposed to stay just a bit below 90.
Went to the doc today, and she wasn't too happy with the way my joints looked, which sort of made me feel better in a weird way.  Thought I was just a big wuss and needed to toughen up. But her first question was "You've been in a lot of pain, haven't you?"  So, adding plaquenil to the mix, starting Friday night.  Don't like to start new meds when I've got the little kids here, and this way will have a nice long weekend to see if I have any problems with it. I know there was a thread on plaquenil, guess I need to check it out.  Sort of nervous,  but was about the mtx, too. Boy, I sure hope this helps. She wants me to go back on the Celebrex for a bit...yuck.
Well, hugs all around! Have a good night......
Jody

Jody - good luck w/the plaquenil. I have had good success on it.  I was planning on hitting urgent care today for strep test, but daughter stayed home sick and couldn't go. There is some stomach bug going around. My son had a short case of it a few weeks ago, mainly random diarreah....I came down with it a few days later and I haven't gotten rid of it yet. Don't know why. Daughter woke up with it this a.m. was good all day....until right before bed. So, if she's well for school tomorrow, I'll get the strep test first thing. I think there is a chance my daughter might have it as well....<sigh>
 
Erin - hang in there! So glad to "hear" you again! yeah
 
WIth all my medicine induced liver problems, I gave up drinking a long time ago. I have maybe 3 drinks a year....BUT, I was never a big alchol enjoyer anyway...now if I had to give up CHOCOLATE!!!! That is another story. tongue   I do like hot cocoa and baily's irish cream, though.....good thing it's too HOT to even THINK about something like that! nono
 
Night all. ****

CaMama,
Was it hard for you to adjust to the plaquenil?  A little nervous about stomach problems, I'm kind of sensative to meds.  How long did it take for you to notice it was helping you?
No was never a big drinker either, but did enjoy an occaisonal margarita. It was a birthday/anniversary dinner, and just had to indulge, ya know? Found myself  looking for Boo's cabana boy!!!  Used to make my own Kahlua, now that in coffee..mmm....never thought to try it in hot chocolate.....sounds like an idea for the winter.
Right there with you on the chocolate thing...in my diet it is it's own food group, that and coffee, don't need much else.
Started the new little girl today, poor little thing.  Once she realized her mom had left her, she cried most of the day, except for her nap. 
Anybody got big plans for the holiday weekend?  Hoping ours is just quiet and dull.
Kids are waking from their naps, gotta go,
Hugs to all,
Jody

No, I don't think it was difficult. My stomach gave me some issues for about week, maybe 2.  The change in it helping was very subtle. I started it in spring....and I remember in late Fall I noticed that I had been feeling rather good and how it slowly came on that way. I wondered if I was in remission or it was plaquenil (I think at this point I had been on it 5-6 months.)  So, I stopped taking it. about 5 days later I was in excruciating pain...so, I went back on it, it took about 4 days to start kicking back in, I had to deal w/tummy trouble for a week again....and that was it.  The following Spring, I think I "tested" it again...same thing.

Not a coffee drinker, but I can vouch for the baily's in the cocoa! As Pooh Bear would say, "Yum, yum!"

SIL is home from 4 day stay in hospital for "boat-load of" chemo and radiation, sick as a dog.
Give me strength, this is gut-wrenching life. My daughter is one tough gal, day and night nurse, sneaking out to the front porch to cry. I'm as frustrated as can be, yearning for the days when a band-aid and a kiss made the hurts go away.
A low pressure front is "sitting" right over Oklahoma and making me ache like mad. Hubby is about to take my car away from me as I am a crazy woman these days. Told the folks off at the bank drive-by yesterday. Heehee. They needed it. I don't get it......I used to be so nice.
Time to get into bed and take a little something for pain. Thank you so much for lifting me up.
Bear, I'm thinking of you, Boo

Dearest Boo,  Wish there was something...anything...that we could say or do that would help...but please know that my heart is right there with you!!  I honestly don't know how you keep going day to day...sounds to me like your daughter learned an awful lot from her mama.  There are so many things in life that I just don't understand, but I know that without family and friends it would be unbearable. 

Thanks for the info on the plaq, Camama..starting it tomorrow night...am hoping that maybe since I'm already on mtx, it will start working a little quicker????? Oh well, one can hope. Momto3 said that she had some problem with an acne kind of rash, did it ever bother you that way? How's the family feeling?  You guys have really had a rough road of it lately!!! 

Yally, still vacationing?  Or is this the weekend your daughter goes off to school?

Missing you Ducky, hope all is well with you and the family.

Erin, hope you are still feeling better...did you ever decide to start any of those language classes?

Time to hit the sack...kids come early.

hugs to you all,

Jody

hey all...
Boo, stay strong cookie! remember...anything at all, just a call away. radiation does make ya' more sick than just chemo. it all just sucks!

nah..no learnin' for me yet Jody! LOL...only reading i've been doing is on the bowl (ewwww)...it's been bad the past 2 days.
spending 13 days w/ my honey starting tomorrow night!!!!!!!! oh i cannot wait! i feel so much more at home & at ease there. it's "our" home ya' know? here where i share a house w/ my mother..God it's awful! feels like a prison really. 2 completely different styles of living & it doesn't mix!
so tomorrow will be a relief. i can actually sit outside & have a cup of coffee & not be bothered by anyone...in peace! plus his condo is "arthritic friendly"...everything is easy to reach & get about.

nights are daunting here...i hope i get to sleep soon.
ciao!
