    YES COLCANNON, woo hoo way to go for me but whatever theother was I have no clue,
I just made chicken stew with dumplings, my cooking therapy.
BTW LINDA. DH loves to wash dishes,it helps his arthritis, we do have adishwasher but he likes to do it,
When i worked weekends and he was home with kids he always did the laundry , the boys used to ask him when they could not find a sock or something.
We clean together that is when we clean it's just vacuuming floors and dusting. I am the exalted one since I make the meals, I love to do it and he loves to eat it. We are a very well matched pair. HUGS Pat in Maine,
WHAT are GALUMKIS--please. I never found out what the last things were. HUGS Pat emoticon emoticon emoticon I hope you feel better today, enjoy the weekend.

I am putting off a big trip to my doctors office. I need to address so many issues, but the foot pain is getting to the point of me not being able to sleep or walk very much. If I hooked my jumper cables up to my car battery and put them on my feet, that is the pain I feel all of the time,,
Nerve damage has been ruled out before, I am thinking it is the arthritis and fibro combined, BUT I do not have the Hippocratic Oath on my wall either...

I am thinking I need to start the stool sample by mail thingie too.. With my history of colon polyps at age 21, Linda's Law, and my close call with my mammogram/ultrasound, I want to cover all my bases.. the old body parts seem to pass pain or ills to one another, what's that all about??
My feet were fine all of my life, no diabetes, high BP or cholesterol, but bad hair. Now my hair looks great but from there down, things have sprung,popped, sagged, hurt, shifted all over.

ONe thing I have going for me is I do not have ear or nose hair:: yet.. God help me when I reach that point,, like the two old guys on the Muppets in the loge.. all hairy and cranky and old fartsy!!!

    One thing nice about being all hairy and cranky and old fartsy - not being bothered by those pesky women! heheheh.

But seriously, hope you're feeling better soon.

* Hey! Don't be h8ing on Statler and Waldorf. They are inevitably who I and one of my bffs are going to end up like in several decades.

Seriously though, I hope that your feet get better. I'm really sorry for the pain that you are going through.

Saturday we had our furnace on briefly to get the chill out of the house,,for an hour.. it was 30 degrees,, Today it is 71 degrees. We wear summer clothes with a winter coat over them,,
one hour we have the A/C on , the next we have the heat on!!

With only 69 days left until Christmas, I am going to get my Christmas cards organized and ready to send out soon.. I have a family cookie bake and party to go to on Thanksgiving weekend at me best friend's house,, that is when I usually write out my cards, ,, I am attending a dinner at mom's assisted living facility the last Thursday of Oct,,

Have not heard form either sister, so we will be spending Christmas alone here again this year..okay with us.. we meet with my great niece and nephew during the holidays, but other than that , I just go to work and try to get through the winter,, Going to church then is a great deal for me..

    Hi LINDA, sorry your feet are hurting.
My left one feels like someone stabs me off and on with a knife.
I went to a podiatrist and he made me orthotics,He makes them himself.
I decided to use them and they are helping. I am thinking I might have them make me a custom fit pair but they are not covered by any insurance and they are $350.00 DH had them made for his foot pain and as long as he has them in his shoes the bones stay in place.

If it gets worse he will have to have the foot bones Fused together. I hope you are able to get some help, I know how bitching it is to have this foot pain, as well as the fibro.

I find it much worse i emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon n winter time, I am definiely NOT a winter person HUGS Pat in Maine.

    Sounds like a lot of good plans!

We're still not sure what we're doing, but I believe the plan is it that we'll be staying home for Christmas.

Another day, another dollar. I am happy that my tests came back negative, happy that my dad's vets pay was reinstated for Mom's care after seven months of no $$$..
