I can't get into see the doctor until next week. No surprise there. My son is actually home he was one of the first to go over. He was a front line medic. All he wanted to do was help people. He's out of the army because he was injured over there. He's 80% disabled. and he's 26 years old :(. My hubby was 100% disabled from vietnam but they said that wasn't what killed him? of course it was a v.a. hospital so I wouldn't expect anything else. (sorry sore spot with me) . Thank you for prayers for my son as he continues to need them. His name is Jason. I have 3 online troop support groups. That is my passion. LOL beleive it or not I'm not always here. LOL

love ya

God Bless

Carol,
  I'm sorry you have to wait till next week to see the doc. I Hope you will be ok over the weekend...((Hugs)). Just rest and sleep as much as you can.
  Bless your heart! I can't imagine what you have been through with your son getting injured so bad and loosing your husband as well. I'm glad you have the troop support groups to help you cope with these terrible tragadies. Of course we are always here for you too.
  You, Jason and the rest of your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

Carol, your thumb sounds so painful. Has your rheumy ever suggested RA? As you know, it can cause not only awful pain, but deformaties as well. I hope your rheumy gets to the bottom of it. Waiting can be so hard!

You have had your share of stress, having lost your hubby and with a son in Iraq. That can't do your immune system any good. Please take care of yourself.

Hey Patty, No my rheumy is an idiot lol. He did see me on a thursday and said tuesday I could come back in and get shots. I said if I could make it the four hour trips I wouldn't need them. I think sometimes I'd be better off just going to urgent care but they don't take my insurance. I could go to the hospital but they cost a fortune even though my insurance pays 75% still leaves me 25% Can't win! Oh and I got your email thanks I'll check it out. I appreciate the information.

Cecilia, don't worry about being 50. I'll be 58 this month and though I feel awful physically, I love getting older. I'm so much happier and life seems easier. We women start settling down as we age. We've raise our kids, the drive for a career simmers down and we start smelling the flowers a little bit more. I have to admit, though, that I wish I still looked like I did when I was 30. Sometimes I think I do.....till I look in the mirror. Aaak.
