Good evening all, Well this morning I had seen the sclero doctor, and he is having me get an MRI a EMG and having me see some kind of specialist for my spine. It doesn't think I'm having a scleroderma flair up but he thinks its something with my spine. So that is where I am at now. No more steriods YAY!!! He did give me two scripts for sleep and another one I think is a muscle relaxer, I will have to check it out. My memory has been foggy for the past few day's. Just really tired and hope I will feel much better soon. Well you all take care this evening, I am going to relax for once. I havent watch any tv shows in awhile. Tonight I am. Sam

Hi Sam, thanks for letting us know how things were going. Sounds like your due for rest and relaxation! Enjoy and feel better soon. If you can, let us know what your spine is up to when you get the MRI results.

Hi all, well I am a mess, I had lost my balance three times today. I am so exhausted, Howie doesn't want me driving for a while, and that is going to bother me, I am one of those people who needs to get out atleast once a day and drive. No where in perticular. I'm gonna go and take a nice relaxing bath and listen to a CD called Sernity, its has relaxing music on it. Its great I have listen to it three times in a row so far. I havent gottent the new meds yet I have to go get them tomorrow, Howie forgot to pick them up after work tonight. So I will let you know about the meds on sunday ... Take care, Sam

Hello Sam,
I hope you are feeling somewhat better. We went through your little town on the way to my son's house last week. We left the Irish Hills and traveled the back roads to Dayton. I know about where you live. We are just about equal distances to the Adrain Mall. It will be so cool to finally meet in a couple months. We didn't stay at my son's as planned. The snow storm was comming and we needed to get out of dodge. So, we did. We arrived in Florida on Saturday. The weather was 80 degrees at 8 pm. Fun while it lasted. It is cool out this morning. But, it is sunny and clear. I will be able to take a walk (outside) for a good bit. In Michigan I would have to be bundled up and tromping through the snow drifts. It wouldn't happen. Keep in touch. Sheryl
Strength and Warmth,
Sheryl
