Hello Peeps & Fam's!!!
I know it's been a while since I've posted> Kinda reminds me back when I was young and Catholic explaining to the preist in confession, why I hadn't been to Church in a while!! Any Catholics or former Catholics sure know what I'm talkin about!!! Sorry I've gone off topic before I evan got to it!!!
Anyway, I went to my super great awesome pain Doc yesterday and he gave me a test on my hands and arms> Finally> Been trying to get this test for a while!! The one w/ the needles and electric probes! It took between 10 & 15 minutes and didn't hurt too bad! Espessially after having 2 days work on a root canal and crown and a huge mole frozen off my face earlier in the week! But anyway, he found Mod Carp/Tun in my left hand and sever carp/tun in my right hand> No surprice to me, I was diognosed w/ it over 10 years ago but forgot the Doc's name and lost the report and my hands go numb after a minute of using them!! My doc also found damage to the nerves running down my arms from my cervical problems & surgery! I thought that was fixed when I got the feeling back in my arm after surgery!!!!
Don't know if I mentioned it but I finally got a date to see >Da Judge< for my social security dissability case May 17th!!! YipEEEEE!!!!! So I'm scramblin to get all the proof of my horid health as in reports> charts> graphs and anything that will help me win my case!!! 
I have to try to get a new MRI on my lower lumbar since it's been a couple years! It hurts so bad that I'm pretty sure things are worse down there than last time w/ ripped, ruptured & bulging disks and a cyst growing on my spinal cord down there somewhere as well as a good case of stenosis w/ some other junk thrown in for good messure!!!
So thats what I've been up to> Dr's & dentist w/ a little gardening, horse poop scooping and NO Fishing>GRRRRRR! Best time of the year (They say the fish are juming in your boat out on the Gulf right now!) and my stupid back is holding me back!!!!!> *)(()^&%$#@!!!
Love All Y'all!!!
Your Buddy and Brother>

 Dear Pete,

    It is good to hear from you. I hope the family and mini family are all doing well. I wonder what you are up to quite often. It is good to see you are still as stubborn and busy as ever.

    I hope your hearing goes well. It would be very nice to finally get it taken care of. You have been fighting the system for far too long. Do you think you can get the carpel tunnel and nerve damage added into your case to? It couldn't hurt (I know not phunny).

Hi Pete,
Congrats on getting your date set for your hearing with the judge!! Yay! I'll definately be thinking good thoughts in hopes everything goes your way.
Glad to hear you got your test done! Are they going to be able to do anything about your CT? I know a fantastic hand doctor out near me who specializes in carpal tunnel, and actually did the surgery for my Aunt for her's in both hands.
Sorry your back's bein' such a pain in the ... well, pick a body part!
Hopefully you'll get to go fishin soon. If I ever manage to teach my horse to shovel his own poop I'll pass the secret on. Heaven's knows life would be easier if they'd either learn to clean up after themselves, or build an outhouse big enough for them to use! At least my boy has one spot in his pen that he's designated has his "spot" for such things; makes cleaning much easier. Now if only he'd grab that muck rake and clean up after himself instead of wanting to spend all his time licking me... as if I were some horsey lollipop. tongue

Hi,  Make sure you get a full EMG. I had a doctor only do partial and did 3 carpal tunnel operations that while missing nerve injuries further up my arm that are now permanent and the carpal tunnel is worse then ever.

Hey Pete~

If those fish are 'jumping into your boat' down there then a painful back shouldn't stop you. Just drive that craft out to the fishing area, slowly cruise around and open up your large cooler...the one with the crushed ice in it. It shouldn't take but about 20 minutes of cruising back and forth and one cold adult beverage and you'll have that cooler full of fish! No baiting up, no pulling them in, gaffing them over the side of the boats or lashing them to the gunwales.

Easy squeezy, Pete~~
