Hi Sweet,

That is great news!! What a relief that must be.... Hopefully you can get through the holidays with out too much stress.


I guess you could also use your memory problems to your advantage.... "Oh I was supposed to cook dinner? I must have forgot!" "The laundry? I thought it was job to do!" :)

Hi Sweet,

Nine hours? Wow. Where do you go or is it really that far to Seattle?

I forget alot too. My husband says my memory is worse at night, but I think that's cause he doesn't see me during the day - I'm at work. Its frusterating because I remember being smarter and being able to recall things better.


It's the holidays so I say that I forget because I'm easily distracted by shiny things...

Hi Emmie


I was very relieved there was nothing showing with either one of those tests! I already have a diagnosis, so for me if they had been positive, it would have meant more progression than what I would want to deal with and the other would have been bone cancer, so Phew!!!! The reason I don't sleep well is usually due to pain and my husbands snoring! So if I put a sock in his mouth <_< and take something for sleep, then I do ok. I just don't like the hung over feeling the next day, :blink: nor do I like taking meds that I don't absolutely have to!


Lisa, love your idea, I think I'll start with that tonight? "Dinner? what dinner? I though you said you were taking me out"


Peanut, it was 9 round trip. I have to travel to Spokane. Although in Jan. I do have to travel to Seattle for my heart CT. It's ok though I'll see some of my grandbabies. :D

Warm and gentle hugs,

Wow, 9 hours of travel time? You win! Driving does me in! It was hard enough just hangin' out at the hospital for 9 hours.


I'm sorry I'm so late on this one. I'm just surfacing out of a deep slump, and seem to be seeing a little of my old self again!


I'm so happy that everything seems to be coming in "normal" for you, you deserve the best! And keep on the disibility road, don't let any doctor deter you, or compare you to anyone else that has a sickness, there is always someone else worse off than we are, but our ailments and troubles are still our own, and they are very real and important!


Chin up! And keep lookin' cute! warm and happy to you! xo Vee

Happy people don't have the best of everything, they just make the best of everything they have!


Warm and Happy to you! Vee
