  •  Sending good thoughts your way, UQ! (7+ / 0-)

    I hope you are over the worst of it and continue the good progress you've made, and that your scan shows nothing to worry about!

    I've been struggling more lately, weaning myself off the morphine for my back, down so low now that I have sleepless nights or worse and more pain, but feel better during the day, brain alertness better, getting more done too. We all have our problems, but at least we can encourage each other here.

    It's not the worst thing that could happen, doing so much work on your front walk and plantings, then having it all torn up anyway. Think of all the "experience" you gained from it! Been there, done that, hope to never do it again, but this IS the real world, right??

    Hang in there; as you say, peace & courage.

    •  Thank you, John. (6+ / 0-)

      Your encouragement really helps me.  I hope your Mom is well, and that you find a way to get your pain under better control without the morphine.  You hang in there, too!

      •  She is doing well! (7+ / 0-)

        At 91, she's healing faster and better than they expected - one of her doctors says she has patients half her age that don't do half as well! I told Mom she has remarkable healing powers, and she said "No, it's prayer" - now THAT'S faith, and she's been at it all her life. She's going to be at a rehab place for a while until they can graft her leg, we don't know how long that will take - but she hates the food there - of course, if that's her biggest problem at this stage, whoop whoop!

        Hoping we do as well - and thank you Nancy. You are an ongoing inspiration to me, you know - I figure if you can get by with all of your problems, mine aren't so bad. And I can handle the pain - I hope.
