I have not been posting lately. Just wanted to update everyone on my move. We are now in Texas at my daughters where we will stay until we can find a place. Good/Great news on the way down....sooooo thankful... MY Long Term Disability was approved....yay... and so now I am just waiting on SSDI to make their decision. So glad to know that there will be some money coming on to live on. That takes so much of the stress out of my life for now. My husband is back to work today so I feel like we are getting a second chance at life in general.  I am flaring and in quite the pain and my ankles and feet are so swollen they feel like they will split open soon, so it's time to get off my feet. The move went really slow, took us 5 days to make a 2 day trip but if we had not taken it slow I would have been in the hospital before we got here. So grateful for a husband that understands and takes the time to make sure my needs are met. We stopped and rested, got hotel rooms when we should have been driving and made sure I got the rest and sleep I needed along the way. All in all a good trip. So Now it's time to just become a couch potato for a time to get my body back in shape. Gives me time to catch up on all the news here.

Hi, Minnie!  So how do you like Texas so far?
I could have never made a trip that distance in 2 days, either!  What a relief about your Long Term Disability!

Hi, Minny!  We missed you!  I'm glad the move is least this move.  And I'm glad about your long term disability!  This is great news.  Maybe now your body will settle down and feel better.  I hope so.  Just remember, in a few months it will be snowing up north but  you will be comfy in Texas.  Enjoy!
