    Default hope this come to an end soon....

    The past two days MM has not felt well at all. He started taking his antipuke pills, to include a Compazine when he goes to bed. When he got up today, he said he is feeling better. Then there is me with my sympathetic chemo illness.....upset stomach, messed up throat (he has that), earache (he has this too!), and tonight a bloody nose. I never get bloody noses. I can handle all these things with me, but I just want him to feel well.

    For over a year, our oldest daughter has had a lump in her right elbow. She has not been able to straighten her arm and has pain up into her neck. After Roger got his cancer diagnosis, her sister read her the riot act and told her to get her butt into the doctor! Well, she did and they have done tests and an MRI. She got her results back today. She has one of the worse cases of rheumatoid arthritis for someone her age (39) that her doctor has ever seen! He told her they were going to drain the lump and give her a cortisone injection. The fluid in the lump is too thick to drain, so they shot it full of steroids to thin it out and her body will absorb it they said. She is being referred to a rheumatologist, and I suspect she'll be seeing them the rest of her life. At least, maybe, she will have some relief now.

    Oh.....one more week to go and they are all on their own! Think anyone would be offended if all I do at the retreat is sleep?

    We'll be extra quiet so you can get some sleep!! But, hopefully, you can use the retreat to relax, recharge, have some fun and put your worries on the back burner for a little while. Can't wait to meet you!!

    Pat they say when it rains it pours,lets hope this is as bad as the downpour will get.Is it possible that MM caught a bug or something at work?His symptoms are so varied.I hope your dd gets herself to a Dr. and can start regular treatments for her arthritis.Luckily today there is a lot more that can be done for medical issues.I hope you can at least catch a few good naps at the retreat.

    With what MM is going through I think it is best to be prepared for anything. Our individual bodies don't always process medications the same way, thus, for instance, when watching ads for prescription meds on TV it seems the time spent talking about side effects seems longer than the time they talk about the actual meds.

    As for the retreat and sleep, I'm thinking when you get together with that great group of forum members you will perk up and have a wonderful time!!

    Have lots of fun...you sure deserve it!!!

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    Hope everyone is feeling better soon. Hope you get lots of rest at the retreat, but sewing can be somewhat restful at times --- right? Anyway, can't wait to meet you and everyone else there.

    Gerri said it best, " As for the retreat and sleep, I'm thinking when you get together with that great group of forum members you will perk up and have a wonderful time!!

    Sending hugs and healing wishes. Think of McDonald's old slogan: You deserve a break today.
