Thanks for the updater Mikel! I know you are a very good friend of hers, and I have said before that I believe in the Buddy system here. Keep us updated as much as possible, but we also respect her privacy as well. We wish her the best and our hearts are with her more than she knows.

You are a very good...concerned...friend, Mikel. I'm all for the "buddy system", too.

Before my husband understood chronic pain....and before I knew which medications gave me bad side effects.... I went through the exact same thing. It was hell, to put it mildly. I laid there for 5 days...going almost cold-turkey off of everything, because I wanted to save my marriage.

Anyway, please, please let her know I'm praying for her.... Thanks, Mikel.

Thanks for the info Mikel. As always, I wish her love, laughter and happiness and as she goes through this terrible journey, I wish it even more. What a sweet person Cat is and she has such a precious heart. I hope this is all she wants it to be and that it turns out the way she would like for it to. Blessings to her and thank you for being such a good friend to all of us.

As you can see, you have many people standing behind you! I tried to call today and couldn't get an answer. I hope you get through this without anymore stress than you are already under. Tabatha, you are a wonderful woman and a loving, caring mother. Just remember that this too shall pass! Stand strong and don't let them see you sweat!!!!

i didn't remember responding to this post the other day. but thank you all so much. my husband is being much more understanding, but then again maybe I'M seeing it differently.

i'm crying now just reading the responses, i'm so tired right now, and i'm in so much pain, but this is part of my journey and i'm going to embrace it and work through it as much as i am able. one thing i can say is that i'm getting my hope back. that is tremendous. thank you friends.
