    It's been nice out here, but I'm still sitting on my electric blanket on my recliner...I did just get back kfrom the store though

    My wife's birthday is tomorrow and I have to pick her up early in the AM at the airport so I got a card and a little flower thing to at least not be empty handed. I plan on having her favorite Starbucks in hand too.

    While I was at the store I went to the pharmacy. Trying to figure out why the qty of my norco is all of the sudden reduced 50%, yet the dosing on the label is the same??? At least I see my doc this week so I can fix it. The doc wrote 120 whereas it used to be 240/30days. Pharmecist said it was 15 days which makes no sense.

    Such is the joys of living out of a pharmacy. I would love to be drug free. Maybe I should consider the pain pump?

    Happy St Pats and good luck with the weather.

    Well Tim the weather got a bit better 2 hours ago when the sun warmed things up. Finally. Did you ever try the stem or Tens unit. It does work on some of my pains, not all. I work in a pharmacy so I know how some of these scrips sound weird. Hope the doc can fix it soon. ~Deach~

    Hey Joy,, Our last storm just ended a few hours ago and the sun is warming things. Hope your doing okay. Miss talking to everyone, Where's Dave anyway?

    Hey Deach - Dave and a few others decided to end their time with WEBMD as a few months ago WEBMD decided to let the members be moderators and watch posts for spam, ads etc., and plus a few other reasons too.

    It's sad as we have lost quite a few good members over this.

    Oh we are getting 2 big snow storms - the first will hit Thursday/Friday and will dump 3 inches in our area. The 2nd storm will hit Saturday/Sunday and thus far they are not saying how much we will get saying they will know more as the weekend gets closer. Ugh just what my back needs~~

    talk to u later~~
