Hi Straydog and PALady,
I am guilty of not posting much lately, but do come on most everyday to check in on everyone!
No excuses just haven't felt like sitting in front of the computer for long!
Still here and sending warm sunny hugs to everyone from AZ,
lol awww PALady wouln't that be great.....high ho high ho its out of pain I go! Hey I think that could be the CP theme song!
LOVE YOU ALL SO MUCH!
Hi Stray and the rest of the gang, old and new,
I am here. In fact, I try to check in at least every other day to see how everyone is doing, but between the difficulty in typing with my wrist issue and my back/hips not allowing me to sit or stand for longer than a few minutes at a time, it is difficult to write most days lately.
I said back in December and early January that I would go see this hand surgeon in NJ again and schedule getting this thing taken care of and now it is March already.......where did the time fly off to? I wonder if I can manage to again find good reason to postpone things for another few months.......I'm sure that I will have no difficulty coming up with good excuses......anyone want to help me compile a new list????????? I'm sorry to have worried anyone. Mom was nice enough to check in via my email and make sure that I am still alive and kicking ( not so much on the kicking part........LOL)
I hope that everyone is doing okay and that their pain levels are at least on the way to coming down. I can't say the same here, but it is my hope for all of us that one day soon , we will find our way on the downward trend of the pain scales.
Lots of love to all,
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,And sorry I could not travel bothAnd be one traveler, long I stood
