Hi Reed first off I'd like to wish you a happy Thanksgiving and I hope you have a wonderful day. So sorry I haven't been in touch but I've had a few family problems taking up my time here. I am still battleing the Polymyalgia and have managed to get down to 7mg at present which I am really pleased about. Have Mum staying at present and she is enjoying her visit very much. She will go home on Monday and I'll miss her terribly. At the same time Nick and I will be visiting all the family in England this Christmas and will be staying at John and Vanessa's for the Christmas period along with Mum. Hope everything is going ok with you and they manage to sort out the treatment for your knees so you can be pain free soon. Oh and by the way Nick is having trouble with his shoulder again and is due to have another steroid injection at the hospital again of the 3rd December. Take care Reed. Tricia x
Good Morning Gator,was listening to Pauly's music on his page-and thought about you and how it is hard to get people to go to church at times-and you,if at all possible you are always there.Quite an example..Have a good day sweet Gator..
Oh Reed, I wrote a nice long comment this afternoon and now see that it didn't take. I am mad. In summary I got drops for both eyes and ears after waiting 2.5 hours for Urgent care and 1 hour for pharmacy. Got home just wiped out, laid down and now I am wide awake.
Hi Gator. I went back to work for two days, have the rest of the week off for Thanksgiving. It is actually quite fun to be back at work! The whole program fell completely apart while I was gone and everyone is so happy I am back to fix it. Actually mostly caught up with all my friends and co-workers and it took me one whole day just to take care of all the emails and phone messages. Today I cleaned my office, it was pretty dusty and developed my master plan for when I go back on Monday and really get busy. I am glad that you got your shots and hope you are out of pain. Can you take some extra insulin to lower your BG, you should ask your doctor for a fast acting pen and just use that to lower it so you won't feel yucky. I am SO happy that you are going to go to the pain clinic. I think it will really help. I got a referral to go as well, but it takes a while to get in. BF is busily preparing for Thanksgiving already. We are having his friend over because his wife is out of town. He is supposed to be very nice, He is a retired police officer. It will be fun to meet him. There will be four of us. I need to fix up the house so I will do that tomorrow. Tonight I am just going to read books and relax. Take care. Ellen
HI Reed- So sorry your knees are giving you so much pain. Jim is still trying to regulate his coumadin. His INR won't go above 1.5. It is frustrating him. And I plan to write a Blog about a good friend who passed away on Saturday. He and Jim were best friends for 50 years. Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving. Cat

Hello Reed. Sorry for being MIA. Lots to do for my Mom, work etc. Almost have the bathroom completed. Had a terrible Sunday --> Monday. Pete had a toothache. It was so bad. I gave him A LOT of medicine for pain or to sleep but it didn't help. He could not sleep with the pain. Had root canal & a crown done today. Had a really badly infected tooth & is on Penicillin & Vicodin for now.We are all going to Brian's but I am helping to cook. Bringing Pumpkin pies, Apple tarts, sweet potatoes & pineapple stuffing. hard for Toni to do it all and nurse a 4 month old baby too. Plus it's stuff my boy look forward to having every year so i don't mind. Hope you get relief from your knee pain. Cold here. I really hate it. Pete has the whole week off so I am happy for that. Brian just got some of his research published in a scientific magazine. It is 8 page article. He has been published before but this is a big one. And it is look like Kevin & Jen will be moving to NY by the end of January =( Hate to see them go further away especially with the new baby coming in Spring. Well Take care & Have a very Happy Thanksgiving. <3 <3 Joanne
Oh Reed I am such a mess. Now I have severe pain in my ear and pink eye so it's another trip to Urgent Care tomorrow morning. After this is over, I hope I'll have paid my dues for the next several months. Just watched a documentary on PBS about the dust bowl years - very depressing.
