It's a written in stone rule around here that when we return home from somewhere, the very first thing we do is wash our hands with hot soapy water. We were talking the other day about we can't remember the last time we were sick. Germs have less chance getting in our home if we don't bring them home from the public.

Well, I'm in invalid mode. I don't know what I did to my back, but it hurts like the dickens. I woke up that way on Tuesday. I haven't been downstairs since and Stirling is taking care of me. It seems to be slowly easing up.

I'm so sorry to hear that Taxi! Have you tried a soak in the tub with Epsom salts? A nice hot toddy wouldn't hurt either.

Since retiring, DH and I have only been sick a handful of times, no more "sick buildings" to go into, thank goodness!
DH had his old timers flu shot a coupla weeks ago and the only ill-effect he had was a sore arm for a bit.
Doctor's M.A. (seems we don't have nurses so much here in the middle of the desert ) explained that once we reach medi-care age the stronger dosage is administered, basically a double-wallop is how she put it... I get mine on Monday-not looking forward to it... I haven't had one in, oh, 10 years now, but doc is insisting that I get it! SO! Gotta make sure I have enough ready-made food for DH and soap for me, `cuz y'know I'll wind up getting laid out for 3-4 days...

Oh, and CG, great idea for a thread!
... don't wanna be sneezing on someone else's dinner

Oh no, taxy! Maybe you slept the wrong way? However you got your achy back, I hope it goes away soon.

I suppose that's true, since I haven't noticed a member with the name "Benjamin Button".

Thanks Kay. I don't dare try to get into the tub at the moment. That much bending would hurt too much.

I approve this topic being started. I may add to it...and thanks to CG for starting it.

The Petty Vents thread, among others, were getting overloaded with health issue vents.

Tomorrow I have to go to Winthrop. And I am almost certain they will call for the ambulance to take me to the hospital. I now have three ulcers on my leg and one of them is right on my skin graft. So it looks like I will lose my leg this time around. Since this started, I have been gearing myself up to accepting the obvious. The last time I fought the doctors and they managed to find a plastic surgeon to save my leg. So I have had it for ten years that I shouldn't have. And for that I am very grateful. With all this pain, losing a leg sounds great as long as they take this incessant, hideous pain with it. I know about shadow pain and all that goes with an amputation. But it can't be any worse than what I am experiencing this minute.

So far I have taken four gabapentin and three Vicodin to get the pain tolerable. How long the pills will control the pain, I have no idea. But I will find out I am sure. Right now I am going to try and get some sleep. I have been up for more than 38 hours. Between the pain and lack of sleep, I rather have the sleep.

Do hangovers count? My brother was visiting and after dinner we went to a local charity event to see a few guys who were playing in the band. It was a Merle Haggard tribute. I ran into a ton of people I hadn't seen in a long time and there were multiple rounds ordered and consumed..I felt pretty old this morning..on the couch until 2 pm
