Dad Update

Howdy, everyone!
Thank you so very much for your prayers for my dad.  He is now back on his seizure medications and is at Gina's house for the time being.  He fell on her porch and had to go back to the hospital for x-rays on his shoulder!  Poor guy!  I'd say, what can happen next, but we ALL know to never say that!!

As for me, my fibro is acting up a bit.  Gee, wonder why?  I ache all over and sleep in little bits and pieces and have been having very strange dreams.  The Savella I take for the fibromyalgia can sometimes cause strange dreams, though.  My hubby is doing better after his fall over our kitty gate, but his ribs are so sore that he is using those lidocaine patches that help numb the area.  Hey, Dad, you should ask for a lidocaine patch or some lido cream for your shoulder.  It really does work!!

Jackie is his usual self, in "his" cabinet with my towels and vitamins.  Dont' worry, everything is sealed tightly to keep a furry kitty face out of things!!  Here's his picture:
He just cracks me up.  I think he is the most special kitty to date that I've had the honor to own.  He's so very spoiled on kitty treats, though, and loves to snuggle.  Very affectionate for a cat!!  Don't tell him this, but next month is his grooming session.  How he loves those!!!

That's it for now.  Just trying to survive the 115 degree heat.  And we have to go to the grocery store in that!!  Thank God for air conditioning.....

Hugs to all,

  1. I was around the age of 50 and menopausal. My sleep started to be
    disturbed by vivid lucid dreams. My legs began to hurt so much after
    walking only a few yards, and I suddenly became so fatigued I could
    hardly think. Of course my doctor put it all down to the menopause, yet I
    knew women didn't fall apart at 50! The aches and pains began to occur
    all over my body. Some days I felt sore all over. I was finally
    diagnosed with F.M. 10 years later. Now, after trials and tribulations
    with many and various treatments and pain killers (not!), I have found
    relief with Pregabalin and Tramadol with Aspirin/Caffeine. I have found
    that Tai Chi is most beneficial for gentle stretching and exercise,
    along with true relaxation which relieves tension in the muscles and the
    mind. I feel so much better and more in control today, at the age of
    63, that I am enjoying a younger lover after 15 yrs of celibacy. Says it
    all really!

  4. 115 degrees????  Oh my gosh!!!! that is crazy!!!!!  Perhaps in summer you need to come back to Michigan where it doesn't get quite that hot!  I am glad your dad is doing better!  I hope you will feel better tomorrow!
