   Dear Suzanne,
 
     Good morning. I hope you are doing well. How is your pain doing? When is your next round of treatments? I hope it works well for you, I know you have been in pain a long time.
 
     Things are okay here, I am still in my pajamas *shoosh* so dont tell anyone. Also on my 3rd cup of coffee devil  I am hiding away for a much needed "me day". Only things planned are some beautiful dyed pearls (maroon) and georgous findings from the local bead shoppe. ...well, and technically I am supposed to hear back from a few of new doctors today.. I will try hard to answer the phone smilewinkgrin
 
     ..though at some point I should plant my herbs, they are over grown in the windows and need fresh air....nah, maybe tomorrowwink
 
     What going on in your neck of the woods? It is good to see you back at the forums. I hope you have a nice day and are able to relax at some point.

Dani so nice to hear from you. I miss you.
I started my third cycle of ketamine via my PICC Line. I feel terrible and this lasts a good seven to ten days. My pain, headache, is bad. I need my cane, i am confused at times, wonky, nauseated, and very emotional. I have cried buckets. Yesterday on Monday it was about the very possibility that I may never be able to go back to work, my dream job, as a nurse at a children's hospital. How I miss looking after the sick children. They break my heart to see them in pain, and it hurts me to know i may never be able to help them again. Although after talking with my church ladies today, it brought me much comfort in knowing that if I cannot work there anymore I will definitely volunteer in one way or another. And speaking of church ladies, my oh my, but do they ever make me feel better. I look forward to their visit each week, have a chat say some prayers and have communion. I know that God is carrying me through this tough times and i will get thru it with Him at my side. My Faith has helped me immensely thru this illness. If you have never read the "Footprints" poem, then you must read it. It will help all of us who are suffering with chronic pain.
Thank you for sharing yourself with me today Dani. I will send you an email soon. And I would love to see more pics of your beautiful bumblebees.


Love you

Hi Suzane,

I haven't been on HW much in the last week or two because I've been feeling pretty lousy & it's just been too hard for me to read.

Yesterday I went to a hearing with my insurance company for my stimulator trial. It was pretty stressful & intimidating, but in the end they ended up approving it, so I couldn't be happier! Hopefully I'll go through the trial shortly after graduation, at the end of May. We can't finalize the dates until I get the official letter from the insurance company.

Good luck with your latest ketamine cycle!

hugs,
Skeye

Hello Skeye! I too have been wondering about you. I so hope, like so many others, that you get approved on this. You have suffered for a long time, and need some relief. How is school going, or have you come to a point of holding off on it. We are counting on you getting to a place where you can look at the health of our pets as well! :)

SE,

School has been pretty busy. I am writing an honors thesis on my 4 years of laboratory research, so that's been a lot of work. However, I turned in the first complete draft of my thesis last week, so now all I have left is revisions! yay! Although some of the revisions will be quite substantial as I'm not quite finished with my research so I left some things out of the first draft. I give my final thesis presentation to the biology faculty and senior research students on Friday.

It feels like all my professors are trying to cram in last minute big research papers and projects before the end of the semester. I'll be glad when the semester is over. It's been a struggle for sure, but I just do what I can do. If all I can do is the bare minimum, so be it. At this point I don't care so much. I just want to graduate!

Skeye
