     Dear 2Long,

    I sure can relate! I have been having a hard time myself. *hugg* You are right, small steps is the way to go. With a little luck the rest of your weekend will have nice weather too so you can enjoy being outside. Try not to let things get you down. Your doing a great job and doing the best you can!

     I sure hope you are able to get your pain down to a manageable level. Enough to relax and get some rest. Hang in there and stay strong!

*warm hugg*

No walking outside today or tomorrow it is pouring down rain. I will finish baking the choc chip cookie batter. Hubby feels like a failure and he wont last long loading and unloading a delivery truck- bad rotator cuff unjuries. So my weekend will be trying to cheer him up and managing my pain. my swelling in leg did decrease a little so i am happy about that. Everyone take care enjoy the holiday and have a low pain weekend.

Warm Hugs

The birds are chirping on Easter Eve. Did the rain stop? Maybe I should get to stepping and find out. heres hoping those in the MD/VA/PA area have a sunny Easter and all this gloomy rain will go away for 24 hours ;)
MRI revealed disc bulge and test injections revealed RA. Radio Freq procedures have decreased the severity of pain by about 1/3rd. currently on 75 mgs of Nucynta (tapentadol) 3 time per day. Works as well as 10 mgs of hydrocodone, less addictive, no tylenol, but schedule II. Also take Alieve OFTEN, much better than Ibu.
