Hi Gang, have been out of touch due to children and going to see new docs ~ My kids are all in visiting from college until the 25th and I have been recently to Cedars in LA to see what they can do about my back. Won't know for another week what they think but have heard great results from others on the docs that I went to see. Haven't been reading the threads so :
Has the house sold ?
How is the beach party going?
How are everyones pain levels ?
Are you sleeping ?
Any thing new ?
Has the mother of the bride gotten some help so she can be at the wedding ?
Is Tom ok?
Cloe ? PAlady? Scarred ? Ry ?
Will be taking my kids to Seattle, San Fran and Portland over the next few weeks , thank god for pain meds !
Miss chatting but you know family comes before pain!

Hi, CP!
The most I can comment on is the Beach Party as Scarred has arranged for the Beach Boys to appear at the "rib fest" dinner she's planning for us on Saturday night! Additional surprise guests and an awesome dessert buffet!!!

As far as I know from today's threads Scarred's house hasn't sold but she's had two showings that seem promising.

Will be interested to hear what you learn from Cedars.

And say hello to San Fran when you get there - I truly did leave at least part of my heart there. It's my favorite city!! Ever been to the Cliff House?

And how are you doing?

PAlady ~ doing okay ~ alittle tough to have all the kids here and to need them to help me so much ~ I am and have always been the strong one for the family for 20+ years and now I am feeling a bit sad that I need everyone's help so much ~ that said the kids are older now and being so cool and grown up and my hubby is being great ~ they all say that I have given them so much that I deserve to sit around and make them give back ~ it's sweet but at the same time sour~ I mean blessed am I that they love me so but sad am I that I need them so ~ you know what I mean right ?
Anyway ~ my oldest is starting her LSAT training and my middle is going to RIT and my youngest well we shall see but he's just a senior so he'll either be Bill Gates or in jail soon hahaha Anyway I know by my kids that I have done good but I hate to be so weak around them ~
Other than that I am great ~ it's hard to work full time running two businesses but I am grateful for the money and I do love my job but hate , hate , hate the commute !!! I am so tired of driving , it hurts so much ! my PT gave me a special set up for my car seat today , it helped but it still hurts to drive so far.
Anyway enough *****ing from me ~ I truly am blessed to be loved and to be working and to be here so with that in mind lady ~ how are you ?
I will pray for Scarred and the sale of her house. My grandmother used to have prayer "sayings" she called them for every occasion. I got her
sayings box when she passed so I will look for her saying on selling houses and post it for Scarred and see if it works ~ shoot her sayings always worked for me !

Hey, CP it's so thoughtful of you to ask about us! I am glad to hear you are getting some good family time in. It sounds like you have a lovely bunch. I hope you get some great information from Cedars. Do let us know what they say!

I am still recovering from my last flare. My pain levels are almost back down to normal (which is still not good really, but certainly better than when I'm in a flare). I saw the PM and she wants me to stop taking the pain meds my PCP and the hospital prescribed when I went down this last time. I wasn't surprised by that, but it still really frustrates me! She has also referred me to a neurosurgeon at the university research hospital. That scares me a bit (okay - a lot!) but I am nonetheless interested to hear what he will have to say.

Thanks again for thinking of us. Enjoy your family time and stop by the beach party when you have a few minutes to spare! tongue

Hi CP!

Ok here goes the major thread of all time (ok well maybe not LOL). The house is not sold quite yet but I talked with the Realtor today and as you all know I had a showing yesterday by a lady that wants to move her uncle up here so that he will be closer to her. Anyway she knew the original owner of the house and Becky told me today that the uncle will be in Sat and is very interested in the house. He is gonna look it over on Sat and then we will see whether he wants to buy it. So that put the packing into high gear and now we are busting around the house trying to get everything done so that this guy will want to buy the house.

The Beach Boys are gonna be a fun time tonight and I am ready to dance in my VR body and eat all the desserts! I am glad that everything is going well with you CP and I hope you enjoy your trip. Keep in touch sweetie!

My pain has been up and down the last few days with all the moving around and trying to help hubby with the house. Today it is especially bad and think that I will rest for the day and let hubby handle the packing and painting.

hugssss to you CP! Your friend in pain
