  • Going to see PA-C on Friday the painkillers didn't work

    8/29/2016 9:53:46 PM, by ONEAGLESWINGS36

    The title of my blog says it all. I am going to see the PA-C on Friday morning. The pain killers didn't work. I was on tramadol and the pain only got worse by last night. I am still in pain.

    It's so humid here lately in Missouri that it's hard for me to go outside for a walk or just enjoy the weather. I have asthma and seasonal allergies and going outside for very long takes a lot out of me. Having to stay inside for all my exercising can get boring even though there are numerous exerci...

    8/8/2016 8:42:00 PM, by POETLKNG2LOSE

Although it might be pushed back because they want an MRI of my back before he does it and the insurance c... Read more

    Today, my kid sister posted the following on her Facebook profile. Of course this is reprinted with permission - sort of. I mean, she is my baby sister, and I am her elder, so she kind of has to obey me, right? Just please don't tell her I said that, as I'm kind of scared of her. She's got a lot ... Read more

    Despite my August goal of having more fun, my attitude seemed to be in the hoppers this morning. I read someone's blog that struck a chord with me.

    I am sore after surgery on Monday afternoon. The implant is in place and is working nicely.

Unfortunately, I had "stomach issues" this morning and didn't want to risk any problems in public. I re entry bought kits for six shawls and/or scarves (I have ... Read more
