    Sorry to worry you. I have had computer issues-again.

    The arm is getting worse rather than better. I am on track on diet, but even being on my feet in the kitchen for 10 minutes sets off a cascade of pain. Last night I took a vicodin on going to bed and it didn't cut the pain enough for me to sleep for an hour.

    I love you all and would not willingly be absent from you for a day. This thread gives me some emotional warm fuzzies. Thanks so much.

    Smoochies,

    Sharon

    Well the computer is fixable but the arm is a bummer. If you can hold onto your patience that should be fixable too. Time to start poking that doctor for better diuretics, pain killers, whatever it takes. A Squeaky wheel will get seen first! Pretend it's your kid in this kind of a state and remember how fast you would have been on the phone to the Mayo Clinic if necessary! Good Luck!

    Me too!!! It would have been a bloody tornado in that doctors office! ( in the nicest way possible of course but with scary steely eyes). You're worth that same care girlfriend!
