I'm glad you weren't there long Laurie. Don't you just hate those stockings? We are continuing to pray for you and we will add you to our Sunday School prayer list tomorrow morning.

My thoughts and prayers are with you, LP. Please keep us posted.

Finally things have started clicking for me, my knees, my elbows, my back, etc...

these stockings are awful, but they help...
have you ever thought about helping yourself with homeopathy? Do you have access to that over there?

Laurie, I really hope it's just a small incident and everything will be better soon!!

I am sorry to hear about this set back LP - keep your positive attitude, hopefully this is just a minor set back. Stay strong.

Well, I am waiting for the hospital to call with my time for the ultrasound. It is 8 am now and they will call any time between now and noon. I actually plan to call them in an hour.

Thanks to all the medication they gave me I had a fairly good sleep, but the leg is no better this morning. I am sitting in my recliner, ice on my leg and the laptop propped on my lap. Here I will probably stay until DH gets up to get me some breakfast. I feel so helpless.

Yes, Barbara and Cara, these stockings are not the greatest, but I think it is helping my circulation a bit. As for the pain, it is still strong but they have me on mega-strong painkillers.

Thank you again for all your thoughts and prayers. I don't think I could have made it through the night without them. I know I panicked and fell apart, but it is just that I get a tiny taste of feeling better and go back into all the problems again. But I know I am loved by One and by many and that is enough to keep me hanging in there.

CRAP CRAP CRAP! Laurie that just plain old SUCKS! OK, can I put you on my prayer chain? I feel so helpless but I can at least do that.

I don't know what kind of meds you are on but if you are on any clotbusting meds please take extra good care of yourself. Happy thoughts and healing thoughts coming your way my dear friend. (PS, go on Facebook and we can chat)

One difference between a cook and a chef is that the cook mows the lawn, while the bread is rising.

This is not good news. sending you prayers and hugs. Project your thinking past this incident and on toward good health and your summer brides.

This too shall pass. Sounds like you are in good hands.

Wine is the food that completes the meal.
