    Ah, Peg, I'm sorry. But you'll remember what you've told me more than once -- we Midwestern girls come from tough stock.....you'll figure something out and move on...

    Going to the wound clinic Monday, first post- op visit and first full week on the wound vacuum, and first week with the colostomy. It will be interesting to see what the doctor (who is also the surgeon) thinks...

    Aw...Peg. So sorry . But even more grief for her husband and kids and adoptive parents.

    Cat,
    Best is wished for the wound care visit tomorrow.

    I got the whole extra hour of sleep last night and feel pretty good for it! Dave and I watched a Movie on Amazon Prime last night then went to bed about a half hour later than usual but did not get up until just after 8 this morning. Today, I almost feel like two housekeeping chores rather than one small one might get done. A bit better every day! Going back on Rebif tomorrow.

    Peg, I'm sorry you've had such tragic news. People reach a breaking point sometimes, often for reasons nobody knows. And they aren't thinking about all of the grief they're causing among those who cared for them.

    You have to love this extra hour. I've been sleeping and sleeping ever since the PT fixed me up with a neck roll thingy--a foam cylinder to wear under my neck at night. She also suggested using it for lumbar support during the day, and that helps too.

    Cat, I hope you'll be able to celebrate your first week after so many changes happening all at once. The first week afterwards is probably the toughest, and here you are!

    Sorry Peg. I think we all have thought about it at some time in their lives, but not acted on it. To think she may have been able to suppress those kinds of thoughts through the right med. Very sad.

    Do you have another treatment lined up if the Botox doesn't help given some time to make sure?

    I'm watching Halloween 1,2,3,4,5, and maybe 6 if there is one, on the Sundance Channel if anyone cares for those type films. One is just about over. I made coffee, so I'm ready!

    Me too, Frog. Years ago I thought "Psycho" and "The Birds" were scary and don't feel inclined to watch them again.

    For Halloween I've been getting to know a couple of neighborhood cats. One is orange and the other is black and gray. They've been hanging around the last couple of days, pretending to be decorations maybe.
