I've seen 2 different combat stress counselors so far, no word yet if one of them is going to be my 'regular'. I like the one I saw today better so far. She came to the hospital and talked to me there, because I hurt my knee last night and can't use crutches, so I stayed there for last night and today. The one I saw a couple days ago seemed pretty good too, he got to see me shortly after a bunch of explosions had me thinking we were taking IDF, but it was our guys practicing.

:
I think he would enjoy the footrubs also.

No that is not what we want you to say!

What did you do to your knee this time? Do you think that may be a sign that you should come home? So has one of the counselors stepped up yet?

You do not need to win a gun unless you are planning to give it to me too.

I pray (and I know everyone else does, too) that you continue to make progress and find people who can help you the most.

God, please give all of those who are there to help Wolfe your wisdom in how to help her most...In Jesus' name, amen.
Thank you for that prayer. I am praying it too.

Trust me, I've begged myself to say the hell with what I said I'd do and get on a plane home! At times I don't know why I haven't.

I would rather you have a real therapist but this trainer seems to be conservative in his approach. I hope that continues. As long as he works closely with your PA he should be able to help you. I think the heating pad before therapy will help you.

We have begged you and you have begged yourself. Why are you still there?

Just a bad step, it was OK after a day or so. I've seen the one counselor a couple more times, but she hasn't said if she's going to work with me. She hasn't really tried to get into much except my reactions to Afghani's.

I've only got the one here that faa sent me, but the only place I really need it is on my chest. Now that I'm in my new room where it's warm I don't think my knees will complain too much. Not that I can feel the complaints very much through the Fentanyl and other meds.

No kidding, I'm sure glad to have mine back. I had to ship it with my other stuff out of Iraq, and just got it back a couple days ago when I moved into my room. My chest is glad.

Hiya Magnus! Right now I'd love to be able to soak in a hottub all the way up to my nose. I'll bet that would feel good.

I can't help you there. People die and get hurt in war. If God protected all of them the army would be invincible, wouldn't it? My uncle went down on a sinking ship in WWII, and I'm sure people were praying for his protection. I don't know how God chooses to protect or not protect, but I know it's not because he doesn't love you. After all, he allowed his Son to die in agony on the cross for the sins of mankind..
True, but I didn’t save anyone’s soul by dying and having to be revived.

Yes, that is right. But you keep saying you see Afghanis behind every rock, truck, etc, so I think you still need God's protection.
Even if I really don't, it doesn't feel that way. I walk around here just sure I'm about to get shot by the next Afghani I see, even though they don't actually have anything to shoot me with. So should we pray for your protection or for you to find peace? Do you feel that way when you are stateside in public places?
How about both? And yes, I do.

But if you take your thought a little farther, we all need that protection. It could be from rockets and mortars, AK-47's, or muggers and drunk drivers. Any of them could injure you or kill you just as dead as an AK could.

That's right. Which is why we should ALL pray for protection. I wonder how many times God has protected us and we didn't even know it?
No telling. I just wish he’d been paying attention 3 years ago. He wouldn’t have even had to tell me, but I think I’d have figured it out.

David wrote this Psalm when he was running away from Saul, who was trying to kill him. He fled to Gath, which was Goliath's hometown. They captured him and he pretended to be crazy. He let saliva run down his beard and acted insane so they wouldn't kill him. He didn't talk to them, but talked to God in this Psalm and did indeed ask for his protection. And God gave it to him. I know God is protecting you also.
The difference is I'm not pretending to be crazy, I just am.

I could see that coming a mile away.
But you forgot to duck.

Do you think he'll keep on protecting me after I've done whatever he kept me here to do?
Til the end of time. Even if you die you'll be with Him.
How can you be SURE I won't go the other direction when I die?

Just don't take that dying thing into your own hands.
If I do are you going to join the posse that’s going to come over here with bats and beat me to death again?
The heating pad thing makes sense. The heat increases the blood flow and makes you more limber. It might not hurt for you to put the heating pad on there at night some too, if you haven't been already. I'm sure the cat wouldn't mind it either.
Mandy loves my heating pad, she tries to use it when I'm not there. I've used it quite a bit at night, but never before therapy before. I sure hope it helps.

How can you be SURE I won't go the other direction when I die?

Well, you deserve to go the other direction. We all do. “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God”. The only way to get in Heaven is to believe that Jesus is the Son of God and that he died and rose again to atone for our sins. You can't be a "good person" and get there, because one sin is enough to keep us out. I think none of us are sinless, now are we? “For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.” “I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life”

Just don't take that dying thing into your own hands.
If I do are you going to join the posse that’s going to come over here with bats and beat me to death again? What do you think?

Mandy and Mitch have two things in common. They both love you, and they covet our heating pads. When I was in the floor after the stroke, my feet got cold and I had to wrestle Mitch for my heating pad!

I hope it was nothing more. Remember that your one shrink in Iraq started slowly with you and still ended doing you a lot of good so this counselor may do the same. Are you using the heating pad now that you have it back? Is it helping your therapy?

It's letting off a little, but as you know it'll never really go away since the pain from travelling is really just aggravated pain from getting shot. I'm still at the max dose of Fentanyl and don't think I can come off that anytime soon, but I'm not eating add-ons quite as fast the last couple days. My 'doc' says she hopes I can get back to where I was before I started traveling soon, but won't force me off my meds while the pain is still this bad. BTW, I had the MRI, should have more info in a few days hopefully.

Yep, I remember, I'm giving her time. It does seem like she'll be the one I see, although she hasn't said as much. She just keeps making my appointments for when she's open. The heating pad seemed like it helped some today, especially since it was cool in the room and that makes it hurt worse.

I used to love it when my mom and her ex had one of those. I spent a lot of time there just to use the hot tub. However after I got my Rhuematoid arthritis, I did not care for it as much. They are not so good for that but it sure felt great on my back and knee. I wish you could have your own personal one, that would help you a lot. See you should have bargained with them before you said yes. Give me a hot tub and I'll stay??

I still hope that the results on the MRI cause your doctor to send you home but at the same time I hope you have not done yourself any serious harm in all the traveling.

Being able to cut back on your pain meds even a little bit is a big step in the right direction. I hope that continues.

That would have been a great idea if only I had a place to put one. It'd have to be inside, since I can't breathe this cold air for more than a couple minutes at a time.

I'm seriously thinking I'll have to enclose and heat part of the back deck so I can have a hut tub and use it year-round. Who all wants to be invited when I do?

Got the word today on the MRI, and I don't need to have my chest cartilages re-re-re assembled. The doc said everything's still attached and in it's right place, just badly stretched, strained, abused and as one person put it, really 'angry'. So no medevac out of here, and he doesn't want me flying at all if I can help it. I'm not supposed to crawl, run, lift anything heavier than my laptop computer, or stay out in the cold any longer than I have to. He also gave the person doing my physical therapy his marching orders. He's to start off slow, careful stretching and breathing exercises at first, adding in resistance exercises with minimal weights slowly and only when it doesn't cause more pain. Doc told me even though I didn't tear anything loose he thinks I set myself back "substantially" by doing all this travelling and coming here. He also said the nightmares, thrashing, and lack of sleep isn't helping matters any and he wants my counselor to get to work on helping me with that.

Well, at least it SOUNDS like you are now/again getting to actually see a Doc who has his shyte together AND gives a damn........ which is a far more generous characterization that I would give to 99% of the morons who have been (supposedly) treating you/"following you" etc.

Now, we just still gotta get you the hell outta there.............

Oh, btw, got new Hajji phone yet, Hon?

Regarding heating pads:

Simply this: if I could for some reason no longer have on-demand access to a heating pad, absent any real pain control from Rx sources (and a doc that gave a shyte, but that's a different rant) - Very likely I would just apply a 9 mm cure and call it the End.

Have spent the last several nights with my heating pad, thinking about buying two more so I don't have to move the one to different places.


Don't like the 9mm cure

I'm doing well. Since I had the shingles a while back I've tried to not let stress get to me so much, and just leave everything in God's hands more.

The family is holding it's own right now. Since my Father in-law has been in the nursing home he has gained 20 pounds, which is a good thing. He had gotten down to 98 pounds in the hospital. He seems to be thriving.

My 'doc' says she hopes I can get back to where I was before I started traveling soon, but won't force me off my meds while the pain is still this bad. BTW, I had the MRI, should have more info in a few days hopefully.

Yep, I remember, I'm giving her time. It does seem like she'll be the one I see, although she hasn't said as much. She just keeps making my appointments for when she's open. The heating pad seemed like it helped some today, especially since it was cool in the room and that makes it hurt worse.

I'm seriously thinking I'll have to enclose and heat part of the back deck so I can have a hut tub and use it year-round. Who all wants to be invited when I do?

I think that's a great idea.



Got the word today on the MRI, and I don't need to have my chest cartilages re-re-re assembled. The doc said everything's still attached and in it's right place, just badly stretched, strained, abused and as one person put it, really 'angry'. So no medevac out of here, and he doesn't want me flying at all if I can help it. I'm not supposed to crawl, run, lift anything heavier than my laptop computer, or stay out in the cold any longer than I have to. He also gave the person doing my physical therapy his marching orders. He's to start off slow, careful stretching and breathing exercises at first, adding in resistance exercises with minimal weights slowly and only when it doesn't cause more pain. Doc told me even though I didn't tear anything loose he thinks I set myself back "substantially" by doing all this travelling and coming here. He also said the nightmares, thrashing, and lack of sleep isn't helping matters any and he wants my counselor to get to work on helping me with that.
Well, I'm glad everything is still in place. By angry, do they mean inflamed? Can they give you some anti-imflammatories or do they already do that? Is that what the steroid shots do?

I assume your nightmares are as nasty as ever. I'm so sorry you are having to face your fears like this.

I realized I haven't given y'all an Emily fix for a while, so here ya go.

I wouldn't be surprised if she's not walking by Christmas.
