Wow, the Gang is all here and we have made it to January 16th - that is a good thing.
I am waving to all of you, Denise, Bill, Joy, Sandy, Ashley, Liz, MMM and anyone I missed - can you see me wave at you ?? OK so it is not the best wave but that is my Prom Queen wave. LOL.
Bill congrats on your daughter's success. Isn't it grand how proud we are of our children ? I have a habit of "running at the mouth" about my kids accomplishments that I am sure people tire of quickly and I must monitor myself as I think to myself I am bragging here......... Everyone has wonderful children and we are lucky when we are blessed with Grandchildren. If we don't have children we have nieces and nephews, or youngsters that are close to our heart. Life is good.
The last 4 days have been a bit of a pain literally as I think I had a partial bowel obstruction that is finally getting better. Oh the pain.....so I have been staying pretty much to myself here at home.
Sandi, Yes soul mate friends, how I would love that. I need friends. I ran into a friend from work when I was at the store today. She invited me to a party at her home for the old nurses - WHAT - I am in the old nurse category ?
Liz, Get that scope done. My hubby has Crohns Disease and he is usually prescribed Percocet or Percodan when he needs pain meds.
Joy, I am sorry to read you are having kidney problems. I must tell you I see your posts in other forums and you always know just what to say to members. Keep it up as you are appreciated.
Triple M - thinking back I believe I had more problems with my GERD when I was going through menopause otherwise it did not slow me down one bit. I was very lucky.
Ashley, A birthday for you on Wednesday - yum, more cake.

Denise, my dear friend, I am always in awe of all the words of wisdom you and the other members here have for the forum members. I remember the first message I received from you letting me know that Janice was posting in one of the other forums. All I could think of was how thoughtful and kind you were to let me know. You have gone on to continue to show your caring and loving ways here in the forum and I know you are admired by so many.
To all, it feels like the forum is growing all the time as more people are dx with GERD thanks to Drs. recognizing the problems and people advocating for themselves. The support and sharing in the forum helps so many - not only the members but the public that come here to read and to learn about GERD/Heartburn. I know 2012 is going to be a busy year for each of us.
Love and blessings to all,
