I am back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! did u miss me ? lol let me know how ur feelin
Just a quick note to say hi! Hi.How are things
for you? Would love to hear from you! Hope you are well.Cath.
You deserve a big bear hug! Hi! And how goes things? I am off on hoildays tonight and might just get some free time to write while Im away.Freedom for two weeks! i have so much to catch up on. You get so tired that when you get some energy you have to use it to work,well, not for two weeks i dont! I will be in touch soon my friend.Cath.
Thank you for everything! Your input I'm greatful for. Feel good and take care.
You are so not alone, I had a fibro flare up for 3 days it felt like my hips were broke and my knees were cracked not to mention my back is absolutly killing me ontop of that ptc is messing with my eyes and I have pneumonia. sorry to hear about your flare up and I am so in the same boat with wishing this would just go away... I am applying for social security now too, however I don't want to. I figured since this is the third job that someone has let me go the day after they found out I was sick even though before hand I was doing a great job and getting rewards and what not.. that it is time to give up because it will just keep happening. I have to take my diamox everyday regardless and eventually the next employer would find out and it would happen again. well ttys
Thank you for everything! Thanks for keeping in touch! Im so sorry i havnt written.Just so busy trying to catch after several hospital trips. Looks like I m going back for some more surgery...another VP shunt. I will write this week ok? Hope you holding it together! cath.
DOUG DID TRY JOHNS HOPKINS BUT HAD INSURANCE PROBLEMS. THEY RECOMENDED SHANDS.
DOUG DID GO TO THE MAYO CLINIC BUT THEY WON'T DO A SHUNT UNLESS HE IS GOING BLIND FROM IT
AFFECTING HIS OPTIC NERVE. HE HASN'T TRIED ACCUPUNCTURE. DON'T KNOW IF HE WILL. IT'S DOUBTFUL.
DOUG IS LOOKING AT SOME NEUROSURGEONS AT SHANDS BUT THE SURGERY IS RISKEY AND HE'S NOT
SURE ABOUT IT. DOUG DOES HAVE SOME RELATIVELY GOOD PERIODS THANK GOODNESS AND I HAVE
HIM ON A LOT OF PRAYER LISTS. SOMETIMES PTC GOES INTO SPONTANIOUS REMISSION. THANKS FOR
Just a quick note to say hi! Hey! Great to hear from you. I will try and write soon. Eye sight still a problem but will perservere. So glad that you are up to writing again.talk soon.All the best cath.
DOUG'S DOING OK I GUESS, FOR WHAT HE HAS TO PUT UP WITH. THANKS FOR ASKING. WILL LET
YOU KNOW WHEN WE GET SOME GOOD NEWS ABOUT A SHUNT FOR HIM.
HI, WE'VE LOOKED FOR A DOCTOR. WE WENT TO THE MAYO CLINIC AND THEY SAID THAT THEY
WOULD ONLY DO A SHUNT IF DOUG WERE GOING BLIND! HE ISN'T THANKFULLY. WE ARE STILL
LOOKING. SOMEONE AT JOHNS HOPKINS SUGGESTED SHANDS SO AS SOON AS HE FEELS UP
TO IT DOUG WILL CONTACT THEM.
THANKS FOR THE COMPLIMENT, I TRY TO BE SUPPORTIVE.
You're in my thoughts all the time, but especially today. Sry I have seen your notes but I am only online long enough to check my bank accounts and shut it down anymore once in a while I will come and change my mood but havent done anything els.

hi Kim! sorry it's taken me so long to get back to you... I'm so happy to hear you are feeling better. :) I've been rather busy, my phlebotomy class started a couple of weeks ago, as if I'm not already tired enough, I'm getting 8-10 vials of blood sucked out of me twice a week now! lol. and that low pressure system that moved through earlier in the week gave me hell! keep breathing!! take care of yourself, have a good weekend **hugs**
First, thanks for thinking of us. Doug isn't doing any better unfortunately. He only gets pills for the pain. He is a
professional photographer but can't work very much. He went to the pain doctor today maybe he'll come back with
new info. about treatments. Thanks again.
Thanks very much for the tip. I will suggest this to my doctor. Take care.
You deserve a big bear hug! Hi! Still here and got thru the last month! Now, can do some of my stuff. Ill pm later,ok? hope all well.Smile for me. We have sunshine today!

apparently there is a character/word limit. haha.. okay I'll wrap it up!! I hope you get some sleep tonight and feel better in the morning. Take Care Kim!! ~Samantha
You think they are fun?! Crazy lady. : ) My topics are : Use of Education in Preventing Juvenile Delinquency, Juveniles and Learned Helplessness, and Suboptimization. It's just overwhelming at the moment, so much to do so little time. Do you take any pain medication with the Zanaflex? That's my magic cocktail on really bad days. I'm an advocate of modern pharmacology if you couldn't tell, lol. Is the depakote for the IH? I know what it is but have never heard of it being used...
I don't recognize the author's name... the title sounds intriguing though. I do read, I read textbooks!! When I don't have class I do love to read. My two favorite authors are James Patterson (his Alex Cross series and Women's Murder Club) and Patricia Cornwell (her Dr. Scarpetta series in particular),
