I just wanted to check in and say hi to all. I've been around just haven't said much. After reading just a few of the many topics I am reminded again just how lucky I am at this moment in time. Like someone else said, living in the now. For me the now is almost painless as long as I don't try anything stupid. The pump is working well for me at the moment and I am down to less than 5 perc. a day. It is so wonderful my friends. How I wish all of you could be here with me in this painfree zone I'm in for now. I have been where you are so it's not like I don't know what you all are going through yet on the other hand I want so much to share how well I am feeling.
Of course not everything is coming up roses. I've been having a lot of G I problems and am now schedualed for an endoscopy for July. I am having pain from that issue but there is just no comparrison to the old pain.
I'm also having pain where my pump is located. It is not bad but hurts to touch or press on lightly, I'm really nervous about that being an infection or something but I am living in the now, so for now I guess I just won't press on that spot and hope for the best, lol.
You ladies keep tallking about all that cold weather your having back east or up north and here we are in So.Cal with the temps hitting the 115+. I would love some cold and rain. Even at night it stays above 80 now that's just not right.
Well I guess that's all for now and I hope that when whoever reads this in pain knows I am praying for some relieve for each and everyone of you. It's been a couple decades since I've felt this way, a long time coming if you ask me so I am just enjoying it while I can.
Till later all the best, Toritoo
