Hi redrose, good to hear from you. Your new place sounds like it will definitely be less stressful for you and your family. Dishwashers are great. I have the same problem when I take pain meds, especially hydrocodone for some reason, it keeps me awake, so I end up not being able to take that near bedtime, or sleep all day the next day. I don't know what to say except that I usually have to just stay up sometimes then sleep when I get home. Also, my ultram doesn't keep me up, so I take that near nighttime for pain so I don't stay awake. I know what you mean. I hate getting up in the morning, but my bladder makes it necessary. I hope your pain is subsiding and you are healing well and the surgery is helping. Losing weight is great. Well take care.
