This might be a rough time for many of you. Do what you feel you need to do to get through it. Remember, someone is here almost all the time to talk to you.

Great to hear from you.
Thank you Sara. It is appreciated.
Hi All......I wanted to drop in and say hi since I missed the holidays. I wish I could say I had a good reason but it was really just the busy-ness of the holidays and work. I see Chicago is now engaged. Congratulations!! I wish you much happiness.
I think of you all often and hope all is well.
Merry Christmas everyone.!
Ummm on another subjest..When I fist moved here,,,I didn't feel Bob around at all..like I did in Oklahoma...but NOW? he's here ALL THE TIME! Yeah, I know..sounds like I have "lost it" but he IS I talk to him all day long, I KNOW he is here...he finds lost things, I feel his precense all the time. No I am NOT nuts.. I DO! ! Again, thaks for your kind responses. Hope u all have a nice holiday!
Thanks! I.ve missed everyone here., Yes, I see a doctor once a month for pain medication...in California, ONLY a pain specilaist can prescribe optiods, and only a certain amout and strength.. I see him again on the 27th. Last month I told him these meds really aren't doing much, and he prescribed a pain patch wear one patch for a week..AND he said it was OK to wear in conjuction with me MEDS? Noo way.i did not do that.He's a new guy..but the HORRIBLE thing..I had a very scary and weird reaction to the patch..it was HORRIBLE! for 4 hour i wore it..and I was SOOOO stoned! but it was a scary stone, couldn't walk straight, felt SUPER fuzzy, and complletly dosoriented and DRUNK! i had NEVER felt like that.from a mediaction. Yes, I googled it, and many folks daid that had happened to them. .ICKY! (and I servived the late 60's) so I ripped it off, and threw the other patches in the garbage
The SAD thing.2 years ago, i recieved an INJECTION, done in their office. in my spine..it was an IV, and it was awesome. It lasted for a few MONTHS! .But California Dr.s are NOW under a corporation..PROVIDENCE..Soo, I had to go to the hospital, line up on a guerny with maybe 20 other patients, having the same procedure,,and it didn't work AT ALL! Soo, this is my life now. The BEST adice EVER was from a Dr in 2006 who said "Keep Moving" He was correct...nothing works if u sit all day..soo this is my life now. Thanks for your kind responses..its good to be back. MERRY CHRISTMAS everyone!
WISHING YOU ALL A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS AND BE BLESSED WITH PEACE, HAPPINESS AND GOOD HEALTH IN THE COMING NEW YEAR.
Love all of you.
Chicago Beard ...
Congratulations and I'm so happy on your engagement. It's about time! LOL I know you'll never forget your Rose, but know we have to make a future of our own now.
Have a wonderful Christmas and the best in the New Year.
Marsha (give that lucky lady a hug from me too.)
Mary Jane ...
Don't panic! Seriously, with the horrific weather we've been having here and making it difficult to travel and whether my brother will be picking me up for Christmas or not and other issues I'm going through right now I can have 'no recall' memory wise at times. Our brain gets over-loaded. Also, could be the medications you are on. As far as loss of height you are NOT to young to have that happen. I have lost an inch. I use to be 5' 6" tall and now 5' 5" tall. Don't worry about it. All my girlfriends over the age of 60 have lost height in different variations.
You're OK, but phone or see your doctor just so your mind is at rest.
Have a wonderful Christmas my friend.
Love & Hugs
Mary Jane, so sorry to hear about your memory issues and loss of height. Check with your doctor sooner than later please. Have fun at your daughter-in-law's.
