Good Morning Chronic Pain Family!
 
 
 
      It is a beautiful Monday morning! The air is crisp, the wind is cold and with a little luck you will be wrapped up in a warm blanket by the end of the day.  Never the less! There are tasks to complete, jobs to do and appointments that need to be kept.
 
      Often times we are so busy supporting others that we forget to update about ourselves. So, before we get too wrapped up in starting out the week... Please, stop by and let us know how you are doing. Give us an update. We want to know how you are doing.
 
How are you feeling?
What has your pain scale been over the weekend?
(Are you remembering to take some time for yourself?)

I am feeling a little down. Hoping my boys big and small, are happy with their Christmas. Praying I can do the baking and cooking I want to. Looking forward to the Christmas Eve candlelight service at church. Still having a high pain period and severe arthritis symptoms.

I am remembering to take time for me. There is no other way I could do anything now.
Hoping you all have a good week!

Shoulder's at a 2.
Back at a 1. (yeah!)
Knee is at 1. (All right!)
Foot is at 4! I took my shoes off after an all day trip to the mall and a movie and it decided to start fussing. I had to put on my night splint early, but it's not calming down.
I've got to see a dentist tomorrow for a cleaning. I'm afraid I've got a cavity and he's going to want to fill it. >:(
I hate going to the dentist.

     It has been very quiet around here. I plan things out so that the 2 weeks before Christmas we can do just stuff that is fun for us. Getting super messy baking cookies with he girls. Dragging Daddy to tea parties and finger painting. Playing out in the cold and rushing back in just for an excuse to have more hot cocoa with way to many marshmallows. Making our gingerbread village with so much frosting an candy that I am sure the roofs will cave in. Then the big to-do about lighting up the town and setting up the toy train to go through the town......  It is a great time to be a mom. Everything is laughter and magic.

     Pain wise it is a bit of a battle still. I had hoped that the pain would ease up. In my heart I knew that I was experiencing far more pain than what could be explained away. It isn't that big of a concern though. I know I will see my doctors, all of them unfortunately, in a few weeks time. The last few nights I have been back in 3 hr sleep. Hopefully it will settle back to 4. If not I am not worried about it.

       In the mean time... I have some great memories to create.

i have hope now. yesterday was so bad that i doubled up on mobic even though my regular doctor warned me about having an ulcer (bleeding) in my stomach from overdoing it on mobic.

got a cortizone shot and now FINALLY FOUND SOMEBODY WHO KNOWS THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG WITH MY ANKLE.

only waited a year for help! plus spoke with five doctors and got the help from a podiatrist when i could no longer walk and had to drag my left foot along.

(got a nice gift for a friend on Sunday so that is my happy thought)
