Oh I was just thinking about you today! I am very glad you stopped by again. Though I know it was a painful trip to the river, I hope it gave you a good mind & body re charge! Just what you needed! And technically, you could consider it "medicinal". I mean, afterall, emotional wellness does directly effect the way we feel! So, no worries! If I could pull it off, I would try to go give fishing another shot myself (im very new and havnt cought any fish yet!).
I am glad you made it to your doc today. I hope the new MRI helps get the right information she needs. I know you have alot going on and even more in line to be taken care of! But, the MRI will be a good step. Though I must admitt it would be nice if your SS was approved!!! You sure could use the help, no doubt about it!
I am going to send phone number and hotel address / number. Along with cell phone number as soon as the cell arrives via mail. So, probably tomorrow. I have to go to the spine specialist tomorrow... jeeze that s gonna be a stressful visit.. Need to take the girls to trim their hair, but hopefully I will have my ducks in a row by tomorrow night and ill send you the travel information and phone numbers (along with everyone else!).
I was just thinking about you today! I made a beautiful dyed jade set for your wife in light pink and lavender! But dont spill the beans! Its a suprise! I just had to tell someone, I hope she likes it! It helped alot to make it because my pain.. umm I have "new" pain (Like a deep flu in my side and low back along with "normal pain")..anycase I was stuck sitting and it was nice to keep my mind busy while my pain was so unconvienent!!!
Okay, I will stopp chatting away! I will try to remember send off email tomorrow!

Wow! What nice posts to read 1st thing in the morning!!! Thank you so much everyone!!
Chart, congrads on the 211!!! Holy smokes! Thats super! I'm soooo glad to hear you have a physical outlet also.
Water jugs? What a great idea, but that must really hurt! I don't think I could do that, no I know I couldn't! Last time I went bowling about 5 or 6 years ago, my thumb wouldn't fit in any of the balls due to one of those aurthritic bunps (not sure what they call them) on the inside of my thumb at it's widest part. It was upsetting but the boys and my wife had fun and I kept score. Keep us up on your bowling scores, thats so exciting!!!
Golitho, sorry about your RA crash, I hear you about those 3am times but I guess most of us here know all about night pain especially when we overdo it! I had the second tumer removed from my eye about a week before my boys got home. It was much smaller so recovery was quick and not nearly as bad as the first> Thanks for asking! Your friend sounds amazing! People like him really give me hope! Thanks for the tip about the ceramic heads for my hip, I'll remember that! Also, that sounds crazy about your doc and the tramadol! I tried that stuff many years ago and it gave me awful headaches, I mean bad! So I threw them away and used tylonol instead untill the doc finally prescribed a narcotic. That reminds me, my doc also cut my methadone back yesterday for the first time. I had already cut back one pill a day becuase I had a feeling she was going that direction after cutting my oxycodone script in half. It seems like she is afraid of prescribing narcotics! She is very young and smart but if she keeps cutting my meds, I'm afraid I won't be able to walk or do anything! It's scary! Anyway, thanks for the kind post Golitho, you are such a good friend!
Dani, I'm so sorry to hear about your new pain!!! Geeze as if you don't have enough going!! You are too nice to make something so special for my wife!!! I know she will just love it! I just can't wait to meet you and your little tribe! I'll be looking for your e-mail and will send you my cell # and adress when I get it! Good luck w/ the Dr. today!!! I'll say a prayer for you! I always do anyway!!
Much Luv and Big Huggies for all of my peeps!!!
Your old Buddy,
PS> maybe I'll write a little more about my trip later!

Pete, keep them fish stories coming. I remember back about
20 years ago, I pastored a church in Indiana and every morining I would head to the local coffee shop and have coffee with all the farmers and older guys who had no where else to go. They would talk about
fishing every morning. We decided that more fish were caught in that little coffee shop than in the rest of Indiana. It was a great way to connect with these guys and I also was constantly invited to join them to fly fish for crappie, bass, bulegill and walk the streams for small mouth bass. The good old days.
