    Hello my dahlings, Next Tuesday the 28th I have an apt. to have a Pudendal Nerve Ablation. This means they will burn the nerve endings and I *should* finally have pain relief. Im crossing my fingers, knocking on wood, throwing pennies in a well and rubbing a bald persons head for good luck. I sure hope this works!!!!!!!!!!!

    Today Im in horrible pain so I wont be on the board much.

    Thanks for all your help and support.

    hugs and smoochies.

    Dizzy dahling, I love sparkles and I love fairy dust. Thanks

    Debbie Doodles Dahling, the results of the procedure only lasts about 4-6 months because the stupid nerve endings grow back. But I can get it re-done every 6 months. thanks

    Beej Baby, Your a sweet heart!!! thanks
