Thanks everyone for the advice and comforting words. You all make me feel so much better just having "first hand" experience a click away!
I'm feeling more like myself today but have made some adjustments to my plans so as not to over-do it. DH and I are heading to Cleve. to see my DS, BIL and nieces, nephew and great nieces and nephews. It will be just a family gathering at their house so I should be ok and I can always take a nap there or on the way home. I did have to cancel going to see my mother and aunt since that was in the opposite direction and would have taken up my whole morning in addition to this afternoon evening to the north.
I'm very fortunate to have such a wonderful DH, he takes great care of me and encourages me to take it easy around here. Plus, I have other family nearby and of course cupycake, she's like family too!
Lori, if these persists I will ask about the Ambien. I've seen the ads on TV but never had a need for it before. Maybe counteracting pills seems redundant to others but if it helps us while we go through all of this who cares?
Thanks again and hugs,
