Welcome back! I'm sorry to read what happened with your daughter and son in law. I'm truly sorry for the hurt that I know that it caused , and will continue to cause.
I'm glad that your doctor increased the frequency of the dosage. When I was on oxycontin/oxycodone, I got much better relief with the every 8 hour dosing than I did at the 12 hour dosing schedule.
I hope that you continue to find it that way for yourself.
It sounds like your visit with your younger daughter, grandbaby and son in law were much needed at this time. I'm glad that it went well. Grandbabies tend to bring out the best of belly laughs when we need them the most.
Glad to see you back amongst us. You were missed.

Adhesive Arachnoiditis also......just what I didn't need..9/08- adding bilateral ulnar neuropathy with severe compression to the mix. They want me to see a surgeon for ulnar nerve surgery, but I'm not biting.
I've seen enough surgeons over the last few years.
