Just wanted to say thanks to you all for your prayers and kind words while my Hubby and Dad were going through some things.  By the way, Dad got to come home today.  If you all don't remember he had knee replacement and had pneumonia afterward and was on a ventilator for a bit.  But he is doing so well and so glad to be at home and the hubs is doing good too.  He is just about completely healed from his abcess.  As for me I am trying to fight a flare coming on as well as still dealing with trying to find the root of some digestive issues, but I did have an upper GI last Friday and it looked good so that's a start.  I'm aching all over today and that usually means a bad flare is on it's way.  I sometimes have delayed reactions from stress.  Anyway, hope all of you are well and thanks again Fibro family!

Libby, I'm glad your father and husband are doing so well!  That's great news and those are big stressors.  Your soreness might just surprise you, too.  Keep positive thoughts and don't "plan" on a flare.  Just look at the great news you just gave us and your body might react positively to it. 
Try to relax now and take a nice hot shower and rest.  You deserve it.  You have been through a lot lately.
