    Cool

    Agate, I'll have your coffee. Vicky's is just too pretty to drink! Do you think that's real, or faked?

    I've been sleeping off and on all day, and when I wake up each time, it's STILL not payday!

    Peg, really sorry to hear you had to turn in your driver's license. That would be extremely hard. I know it makes you sad and all here who have had to do it.

    Cat, your news sounds good. Seems like someone should be able to come up with something really soft that is removable to cover that place. I think I am saying (or trying to say) something that you can take on and off, so that when you are going to be laying on it you can use it. Then when you get this completely healed use it to cover the place when you are going to be sitting or laying on that spot so that this will not keep happening.

    Agate, you are so good to Howie. First you give him beer and now a cup of coffee. You really spoil him.

    I am going to have to try and find some little kids that I can give these mini tootsie rolls to. The reason I don't get many trick or treaters is because we just don't have any small kids in our neighborhood. I left my porch light on until it was late enough last night that I knew I would not get more than that one who came pretty early. I was hoping I would get more.

    I also have mini eclairs and mini cream puffs. They are real good. Last week when I had book club, I also had to go to the Doctor that afternoon. I didn't have time to fix anything so I bought a frozen box of each. Then I found out that not everyone could be there. There were only 5 of us. So I took twenty (10 of each) to the book club and now I am taking out one of each for desert each night. They just need to stay at room temperature for 45 minutes and then they are good to eat. It will take me a long time to eat them all. I probably should have saved the ones I had after dinner tonight and had a cup of hot tea with them. It has been cool here today. It is supposed to get back warm tomorrow and Thursday and then cool back off over the week-end.

    Virginia, those frozen mini eclairs and cream puffs sound like the perfect thing to serve to a book club. Or any other group of people who might appreciate them, and who wouldn't appreciate them?

    I see Howie has helpfully given an address where you can send those extra Tootsie Rolls to.

    If he misses his beer, we supply it here. If coffee is lacking, we come along with that. We're nice folks on this board. And it's not every cup of coffee that looks like the one Vicky provided.

    Cat, I'm not sure that resting a pressure sore area on a particular kind of material is the entire answer though the type of material surely matters.

    As I understand it, a pressure sore can get very bad before anyone realizes it. You yourself aren't feeling it because that area is numb. But damage is happening inside, under the skin, and showing up where anyone can see it only as a slight redness for quite a while.

    Yet another reason why the numbness that MS brings is so very dangerous.

    Thumbs up

    I have a sad eclair story. My dad brought a box home one night, and we all had one. They were delicious.

    Little did I know, I had picked up some sort of virus or flu, and in a short time, emptied the contents of my stomach, and then some. I was sick a few days, then completely recovered.

    But I never had another éclair in my life. I know it wasn't the cause of me being sick, but it scarred me for life!

    Interesting new approach, it seems to me. As the article says:

    Current therapies for MS work by decreasing the activity of the immune system; but, they do so in a broadly-suppressive way that often leaves patients vulnerable to infection.
    That does seem to have been a big problem.
