No I haven't seen her lately. The same as we haven't seen Judy, for a long, long time. I can't help but worry....

Hi Broom Still here and yes been playing in the dirt but it's been all indoors been getting the last 2 months dirt cleaned. Got a new rug cleaner and vacumn so been going at it. Feeling great now and only going for dressing changes every 3 days. Still got a little drainage and a wee hole where my incision is I must say though that the surgeon did a lovely job sewing or stapling it together nice small scar . So how's the scratching going any skin left or you got it all peeled off ? Did the menapause thing get any better? I haven't been on much because I have to get a friend to tell me or at least help me with the computer I keep having to refresh and loose my post. So what have you been doing with yourself? lol gail

Oh I am sooo very glad to hear you are up to vacuming! That's a good sign! Not up to much. We are currently merging 2 companies at work so this one has been pullin' some 12 hour days. Much to my suprise I've been able to handle the stress pretty good especially since I'm off schedule with meals and having to eat out some. I am having to take some of my percocet late in the day though. Been a long while since I've been this active. Other than that the skin saga continues. See my new Derm tomorrow...heard he hasn't got much of a bedside manner but an outstanding reputation. We'll see. As to the natural hormones....I started a week early. Decided it was going to be a no go and I'll just suffer through since that was my only option. Maybe God will have mercy on me soon. Glad to hear the surgeon made your tummy beautiful again! I'm hoping for a little better job of it next time around myself. Hard to hold us tough ole girls down isn't it!

HI Yes my tummy is alot better then expected .Starting to heal the wee hole is and will get to see it tomorrow for a dressing change so hoping it is better still. Guess the skin thing is still not the best for you hope things get the help they need. God better be listening and help you threw the menapause I am glad to be done with all that now and feel better for it. Tough now but was pretty upset when I had to have the surgery but am impressed with how things went . Your shifts are long hope your boss is as sweet as I am and treats you good. Got all my rugs cleaned and the fridge done today so caught up on the housework even bought a MR. Clean to do the kitchen and other floors really easy to use and fast I put some laundry detergent and mix it with water does a great job. Mentally doing great now cain't beleave the difference in me. Sure hope the Imuran keeps things from getting glogged up again I was starting to feet like a overfilled septic tank. Whooo on getting things going again. So what good things are you eating? So glad to hear from you good friends are rare and I feel lucky to have found some. lol gail

Imuran...scary, but real good stuff. I believe if I could take the regular full dosage I'd probably be in remission. Humira takes up the slack for me. The new Derm has deemed it psorasis. Gave me a new stronger cream to use twice a day. Took it to the pharmacy to get it filled and was to dog tired to wait for it.
I'll pick it up tomorrow. These long days are beginning to take a toll. I'm having to stay up later tonight because I was away for the weekend and the night I got home I took my Imuran 2 hours later than normal. So I've been backing it down 1/2 hour each night till I get back on schedule. If you keep doing all that cleaning I'm bringing you to my house! Why do you reckon housecleaning can be such a soul searchin' chore? Sometimes when I'm down and out, sticking my hands in hot soapy dish water kinda makes me feel good...must be the sense of accomplishment. Anyhow, sounds like your having a great time doing my favorite sport....puttering around the house! Enjoy...you deserve to feel good!
