That is my hope, as well.

With everything You've got going on I'm humbled that you have room in those messed up emotions to think about everyone here. I thank you for that.

I injured that while pulling on one of those rubber things they wrap around your ankle and have you pull during my first replacement. That cut my sitting time in half. They have so far refused to do anything about it as far as surgery goes. I'm going to try and beg them again to do something when I go back to the doctor on the 1st. What are they giving you for your spasms? I take balofen for my back spasms. They hit me so sharp and hard, I yelp when I have them and scare the crap out of people that are not ready for it. I can't imagine having those in my chest. I do get esophagus spasms that mimic a heart attack. I have to keep reminding myself that's all it is because I've showed up at the emergency room several times already for them. Have to get ready soon to go to rehab today. I want to cancel so bad but don't want them using the excuse that I did not do what I needed to. I do know why you call them physical Terrorists.

How much do they think pain is responsible for some of these nightmares? I know the major factor is due to the mental trauma but I know for a fact they you have more nightmares when you're trying to sleep with pain.

I have a CT scan on my lungs on the 31st to see if things are going good enough to have surgery...and an MRI on the 2nd of February to see if my bulging disc is getting any bigger. My prayer is that they will do something to stop the pain instead of just suggesting more pain meds. I hate taking pain meds...

My breathing is still not good. Had to go to the store yesterday and they didn't have a rider cart. By the time I was done getting 3 things, I was about to fall over. Got to the car and sat there waiting to get my breath back.
I'm OK, but it's been a tough few days.

I'm sending up extra prayers about your biopsy, and about your lungs too. I know not being able to breathe can be scary as hell, which just makes it worse. I really hope that gets better quickly, my friend.

Thank you for that nice thought, it'd be nice if you get your wish. I agree that my breathing problems were really dangerous at first I don't think they're quite as bad as your seem at the moment. I don't have to worry about blood clots breaking loose and killing me at any time. Sure, I have a bunch of problems, but if they haven't killed me by now I kinda doubt they will. I want you to hang tough and be as OK as you'd like me to be.

We've got to get some happy thoughts in there to push out the bad.
Just envisioning having full motion and not hurting is always nice! I'll take that with or without my bikes! But the bikes make a nice bonus. I've been trying this some, with no real success, but I'll keep trying it.

It's definitely responsible for at least making them worse, if not actually causing some of them. Unfortunately they can't give me enough meds to get rid of the pain. They can only get it to where I can tolerate it.

Damn, I hate to hear your back is giving you such fits. I've startled a few folks with my yelps too, but I've learned to yelp silently so I don't bother the other people in this office. Some of them don't know about my injuries and I want it to stay that way. I've used Baclofen before, but it doesn't do much for me. I've also used Flexeril, Soma, a few others, and even been given Nitrous Oxide in Iraq several times to stop a bad breathing attack.

I heard about the French killed. Not a good week for the good guys.

You keep your head down. I've still got people asking about you and praying. You should be feeling a lot of love along with your pain. I'm sorry you're so far away it can't be delivered in person.

Sweetheart, you inspire us. Despite the physical pain and mental anguish that would lay most of us in a ditch; you live and work in a war zone. You do more for us than you think. May the French soldiers Rest In Peace. Take care Sweetheart.

Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

My God, in Him I will trust.

3 Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler
And from the perilous pestilence.
4 He shall cover you with His feathers,
And under His wings you shall take refuge;
His truth shall be your shield and buckler.
5 You shall not be afraid of the terror by night,
Nor of the arrow that flies by day,

Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.

7 A thousand may fall at your side,
And ten thousand at your right hand;
But it shall not come near you.
8 Only with your eyes shall you look,
And see the reward of the wicked.

9 Because you have made the LORD, who is my refuge,
Even the Most High, your dwelling place,
10 No evil shall befall you,
Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling;
11 For He shall give His angels charge over you,
To keep you in all your ways.
12 In their hands they shall bear you up,
Lest you dash your foot against a stone.

Baclofen is an anti-spasm drug, where Flexeril is a muscle relaxer. Not familiar with Soma. I'd like to get a prescription for flexeril as I've borrowed some from my mom and it helps a little. Looks like I'm going to miss my therapy today, it's hard enough to get around my apartment. I'm hoping I can talk the doctor into looking at that place in my back because it's not part of my previous back surgeries. I hurt it pulling on a rubber strip while rehabbing my first knee replacement. Here is today's

No it hasn't been. It's been a bad one for me too, and not just because of my chest hurting. Today's been painful for me, and I really don't want to talk much. I figured I'd better at least check in before a couple of you folks chartered a plane over here.

Right now I really wish the love and hugs could be delivered in person. Please tell those people I said thank you.

Wolfe I do not know your reasons but I know that you made the only choice you felt you had although it was very hard for you. I hope all your pain eases soon.

Hi LW,
Thank you for checking in.

I was just talking to an agent to rent a plane going to...I also was trying to figure out the logistics. Where and how many times we have to stop here in the US, before heading over there. I know, that I have one volunteer. Any others?

Thanks,
Gyfgyf

I'm hoping I can talk the doctor into looking at that place in my back because it's not part of my previous back surgeries. I hurt it pulling on a rubber strip while rehabbing my first knee replacement. Here is today's : hugs:
You'd have thought Baclofen, being an anti-spasm drug, would have done more for me but it really didn't. Too mild, I guess. Wish I could PM you some Flexeril, and I hope you get to feeling better soon. Here's today's hug back.

Yeah, it's getting pretty hot over here, and I'm not talking about the temperature. We're buried in snow over here.

Still praying for you Wolfe...things will get better, in HIS time. Though I have to admit HIS timing isn't always as quick as we'd like it to be!

Got my test results. No signs of cancer, so the surgery will be the basic 3 small incisions. The doctor I would have preferred do it can't...my insurance won't pay him because he's not part of the network. But he's referring me to someone he likes/trusts to do it. I have an appointment with the new doc on Thursday. My CT scan of my lungs is the 31st...that's the appointment where the lung doc says if I can have the surgery or not. Depends on the condition of my lungs and the clots. Continued prayers would be appreciated that everything is good then and the surgery can be done very soon so they can get me back on thinners and get these clots broke down.

I am giving up on getting shot.

I agree with you on this. Wolfe has inspired me many times since I met her.

I want on that plane. We will just need one empty seat for Wolfe in the return trip.

That plane will probably have to make a lot of stops before it leaves the US. Perhaps we should have everyone drive to Atlanta and meet there. 23skidoo do you still want to come?

The temperature has been very moderate and there are no rockets or AK-47s here.

You may not feel like it but you do 23skidoo was right about you. Inspiring people not to get shot seems like a wise choice.

Give it time. How are you doing in your therapy and counseling? Are you making any progress with getting sleep and your nightmares? Please update us on how you are doing over there.

That is excellent news. Now we will pray that your lung scan goes as well.

I know getting shot is not funny so please forgive me.
