    Hello, everyone. Thought I would post a check-in open discussion thread, aka "moaning".

    Sunny and going into the lower 80's today. Almost every Friday my wonderful wife and I take her mom and aunt out for a fish fry. That is the plan for today, plus we will then take them to visit their brother who just moved into an assisted living facility.

    We went grocery shopping Wednesday morning which makes both of our pain levels soar. Rested most of yesterday, and today my pain/discomfort is more tolerable. Wonderful wife feels a bit better today also.

    Hope you are all doing OK.

    Have a blessed and fantastic Friday, friends.

    Moaning Dave and everyone -

    Well my pain levels are "soaring" today - we had a pretty severe thunderstorm hit early yesterday evening then during the nite the temps dropped and it was 63 this morning so off with the AC and windows open.

    this is reason my pain levels are "soaring" before the storm hit I was getting the ole' warnings as my arthur was telling me something was building and now the chilly weather is hitting directly in my lower back. ugh no comfort~~

    it's hard to get up and walk around the nerve damage in my legs is also affected greatly so have lots of pains today -

    hope everyone has a low pain day as we lead into the weekend, oh and Sunday is the first day of FALL~~~~
    ~~ Click on my name or picture and read my story ~~

    Take care ~~ God Bless ~~

    ~~ Joy ~~

    Happy Friday,

    Good to see those present and accounted for...

    My pain levels are pretty low but I have had a lot of nerve issues in my hand since my surgery and it seems to make me more aware of those in my feet too. GRRR!

    Since my left hand is not yet 100% spell check is getting a workout. Thankfully I have spell check!

    Our weather in the desert is beginning to break a little so I am hoping to spend some time in the garden cleaning things up a little. It has been a brutal summer with high heat and lots of bad air from the fires in CA.
