Thank you to everyone who commented on my last Blog. Life has been crazy busy so it's taken a few days to get back to Spark! I saw my MD who said I wasn't having "real" cramps but a form or restless leg syndrome (RLS), which she said was neurological and went on to describe in great and awful detail all the things that can be done to relieve it up to and including surgery and anti-seizure medications. Oh good giref. She's starting me on a medication call Requip - and if anyone out there has taken it, let me know how you do on it - my problem is I have to wait five days for the pharmacy to order it. I knew there was a downside to living rural!! Meanwhile, she's giving me a very very high dose of what I think is a form of valium. I took it last night and did not have a sincle twitch or twinge (or cramp). But I'm really goofy this morning.
We did take a ride out to my son's yesterday - he's a photographer and he took some photos for me, one of which now graces my page. So good to see him and his kids (and the baby grandkid - guess that makes me a great grandma. Oh my!). Anyway, you now can see what I look like. I'm trying to see if I can get one of my fat photos on the site so that everyone can see where I've come from.
Thanks for all your encouragement and support.
