Good Morning Chronic Pain Family!
     It is another beautiful Monday morning! The sun is shining, the ground is covered in snow and ice, the temperatures are incredibly low. Have no fear! According to Phil and The Punxsutawney Groundhog Club spring is on the way. Regardless of when spring may be coming..........  it is Monday. 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. Even you old time veterans who are lurking.
How are you feeling?
What has your pain scale today?
What are your major plans for the week?

TWO roads diverged in a yellow wood
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood

Well, last week was interesting, if not annoying. We had our first real Artic
Blast here in mostly warm Texas, the first part took out our power on Wednesday.
without any prior notice, of any kind and poof, the first outage lasted for an 1 hour and
20 minutes, on a cold day folks that's really hard, the Second power outage
lasted for 45 minutes, the third lasted for 35 minutes after
which I quickly heated up some soup for lunch, fed the cats and did
what I could to prepared and sure enough our power went out a fourth time.
After that we had minor power outages and I might go after the power company so that they replace my UPS
(uninterupted Power Supply/ not the mail service) as if I could've prepared for the outages
I would've done a good close down on my computer and not a hard one. (Lucky computer is safe). I'm still
mad about this in this day and age and they knew the night before hand that power would be cut...So
heck yeah I'm mad and they should offer up compensation to everyone. an another hard freeze with possible ice
is due to hit again on Thursday, y'all the folks here in Texas are craze when driving on ice, they either
speed up or slam on brakes, how dumb is that... crazy so my pain is up, got some threads at
a store on sale yesterday for my cross-stitch but I still need to get linen banding, need to find 24 count natural linen
band on sale....as I need 1 yard of it. I hope someone puts linen banding on sale soon...
Everyone have a good warm week....healing hugz...(

This week started in a hospital bed, but I am thankfully out now. I'm going to go jump in the shower and was off the hospital feel in just a minute. I don't like to shower in the hospital...too nasty for me.

Anyway, I have a new eurodynamic test tomorrow that I'll still be going to despite my recent issues. I hope this one will give a good idea of what needs to be done to fix the last surgery. Boy does it make me mad when a surgeon does a shotty job!! There is nothing like paying for it twice and going through surgery twice for the same thing! Ugggghhh!!!!

Anyway, it will be a busy week and hopefully a more positive one.

Fall out girl, it is very nice to meet you. You will find that many more people will respond if you start a thread to introduce yourself. It's really simple. Just click new thread and put in a title and give us a little info about yourself. There are some really great people here and I'm sure you will find kindness and support.

Yay for Punxy Phil! I'll believe spring is coming soon until it doesn't, but it makes me happy to imagine sunshine. We didn't get the horrible storms some people did, but we have ice on our very long hillside driveway and the drives to all the houses on the property, and it's going to get seriously cold again tonight. I slipped on the ice a few weeks ago and still have deep leg pain from the bruise.

I think it's a little crazy that Pgh Public Schools had a 2 hour delay today because of the Super Bowl.
