hang in there----it sounds like you are in the hands of a good doctor....if it was life threatening at this very minute they would have already put you in the hospital......it's just nail biting time to get the test(s) done and then wait on the results---lots of prayers coming your way---please let us know how all goes

hey, where's our freakin' mormon when we need him? all pray pray pray and water balloons, and our pal lp is hurtin"!

j/k lp. i'm sorry to hear about your pain, but stop stuffing your face and get some sleep, already.


somehow you just have to rest your mind, and your body will follow. your body can't heal without sleep. resting while awake ain't enough. trust me, i know. i know about lack of sleep.

and eat a lot of seaweed and raw seeds. i'm not kidding. i was beating myself into the ground recently with work and being a dad. i felt tired all of the time, and started to get aches in my joints and debilitating cramps like charlie horses around my ribcage.

i'm not sure if it's the extra fiber, or nutrutive values of these foods (for the seaweed: nori, kapanese and korean seaweed salads, roasted laver, and dulse. for the seeds: pumpkin, sunflower, and flax) but i swear i'm 30 again.

ok, 35. i'm not that stupid.

hmmm, i'm not sure that i've ever given this advice before. it sounds like i'm telling you to live the life of a family dog. eat a lot, sleep a lot, look for treats and affection, and poop well.





i wanna be a dog.

Thanks, BuckyT, I really DO appreciate your advice. And looking at my two dogs, asleep at my feet, I wouldn't mind right now living their life.

Okay, tomorrow I stay in bed and get DH to pick up some sushi and a trip to the Asian supermarket. My kind of food....that's why I haven't been eating lately!

And thanks to everyone else. On one hand I hate to sound like I am complaining but on the other, it is so nice to know I have so much support.

PS BuckyT, did the little guy enjoy his big day?

Well BT, I had a salad with raw seeds for lunch, excellent veggie sushi for dinner, a great nap this afternoon and had some great time with hubby, the pups and a couple of close friends.

As for that last item on the list, I will refrain from comment!

I am feeling a bit better today than yesterday, thanks to everyones' thoughts and prayers.
