Hope all of you are doing as well as we can with this disease. As for us the fun just keeps coming. Friday my husband wound up in the emergency room with a very painful back. He had complained the day before that it hurt and I had him take a pain pill and I put a patch on it. By Friday morning he could hardly move and every movement made him wince with pain. He refused to let me drive,and don't ask me how in the world he got in the pickup but away we went, avoiding roads we knew would be rough.It turned out to be a lumbar strain. Dr.gave him pain meds, muscle relaxers and said to continue with the heat patches. Its better now and today we went to his first diabetes education meeting and it was very interesting. We have 2 more to go to so I guess I'll know all I need to by the time we're done! Take care all and SMILE.Mary-La

Mary-La, I hope your husband is feeling much better than he was last week. I'm glad he was able to get help and relief. Is that something that will go away on it own, given enough time? Sheryl

Mary,

Oh I am so sorry about your hubby. Backs are no fun when they hurt, I can relate to that one all too well. Speedy recover to him and big hug for you.
Warm and gentle hugs,
