options smoptions! I WANT AN ANSWER! I get so sick of feeling sick all the time! HA! I just want my energy back! Around here it seems like all the dumd drs went to the same school.......Let's learn nothing and say we did! GRRRRRRRRRR But atleast this time I went to a hand specilist who was also a plastic surgen......Think he can get rid of all my wrinkles and double chin or would that just be too painful? HA!!

That's after 2 carpa tunnel surgerys and it hurts like..........well let's just say I don't cry very ofter but this hurt badder enough to make me start crying about an hour ago! So much for doing with out pain meds! They won out! HA!!!!

Cathrine life just keeps getting better! HA! I'm OK I reckon, teens, husbands, the lovely A1C of 9.4 (due to stress accorinding to me, my Dr swears I'm eating all the wrong foods. What can I say WRONG AGAIN! HA!) You guys got the nice warm temps going on over there ? Over here last week we already hit the low 90's! I LOVE COLD WEATHER NOT HOT! But then again I'm out voted! I lose every year on that one! HA!

I really hate to hear that you don't notice your lows til your through with what your doing but I must say I tend to do the same thing especially when all my concentration is on that 1 thing then mt hubby especially will get ill with me and acuse me of not watching myself! That's when I really want to HURT him! I mean s*** I made myself get threw this and did pretty good at it then I look up and say I need something to eat and hegoes on this rant that I want to knock him threw a wall with! Sometimimes I think he wants me to feel small so he can feel big and that makes me really want to hurt him badly!!!! Like I said before I finally went and got my right hand carpa tunnel surgry done and am now watching my bs go up and down once more! OH WHAT FUN!!!!!!

Morning Cathrine,
Hope things are going OK for you today! I wanted to stop by and leave you a note to tell you I finally got my right hand done with the carpa tunnel surgery on Thurday! It don't hurt 1/2 as bad now as it did befoer! Don't get me wrong it hurts like hell when typing but atleast now I can feel my fingers when I do now! That was getting to be aproblem for me and also to those I answered back. Hitting the wrong keys ya know? I finally got to where I would reread the message to see if I could make sence out of what I wrote! Now I don't have to!!! But I still supect that I will have a great many mistakes in them now I can blame that on my bad eyes! HA! We also found out my daughter was going to give me another granddaughter in April on Thursday! I'm on top of the world right now!!!!

Hey Catherine,
How's your day today? Let me just say that on the 28th (which I can't wait for myself) I get to go back to the DR and set up a time for this other hand. Then maybe life will be back to semi-normal as a friend says! HA!

Hey Cathrine,
I know what you mean about all the "so called" cures for your hand! Thank God it's only my right one now!!!! HA! Over here in our country today is a national holiday called Thanksgiving! It was suppost to originate from the pligrams and indian s celebrating the 1st year of survival in a different country. All I know forseue about it now is that we go 50 miles away from home to my grandmothers and spend the day with my family members on my maturnal side since my dad has decided to spend his with his "new" family. Just wanted to drop a line before we left out to spend the day there! Happy Thanksgiving to you over there!

Hey Catherine,
That's great news on the new job!!!! No I haven't had the other surgery yet! The Dr got called away on an emergancy on my visit back and they couldn't get me in till the 28th so I will see him then and hopefully get the surgery the next day. If not the next day then on the next Monday for sure! I'm so tired of waking up at night with my wrist and hand throbing!!! How are you feeling???
