Oh no. Jeeze, hope things work out.

Thanks, SB. This is the same person who almost died last month because of a bladder infection she ignored.

Well, she emphatically told me NOT to come, so I guess I get my vacation anyway But of course I will be very worried about her the whole time.

Princess, I am so sorry about your friend. But I agree with her that you should continue on with your vacation plans. Do you both have skype? Many places have wifi now and you can always keep in touch by skype or email. My bff is away right now and we continue our evening emails whether she is away or here.

I am trying to get going on the wedding cupcakes (due for Saturday); however the breathing/swallowing/sinus infection problems were making it hard to concentrate. Well, I went back on prednisone and I feel better; however, the medication is making it hard to concentrate

No Skype and I really did not plan on taking the laptop with me. Besides she's fairly looped on pain meds right now and is NOT supposed to use her arm, they have it immobilized. Her SO has my cell phone number and will call me with updates.

Sorry to hear you are still having problems. I hope it gets resolved soon!

I don't see any real progress in sight as I am p/o'd at my doctor for sending me to a gastro specialist when I needed an ENT. The gastro didn't know what to do with me so put me through some grueling tests and when they came back normal she said I must be imagining something actually sticking in my throat. So for four months I have been dealing with pills, food, liquids and stuff from my sinuses (don't want to be too graphic) stuck in a pocket in my throat, and my sinus blowing out infection which has caused an abscess on my gum and a tear duct infection. I hate the clinic doctors around here and really don't want to go to my family doctor. The only way I can get back to my ENT is with a referral. Plus, I have to get this cake done - it is for one of my "kids" and is good therapy as I daily get reminders of Dad through phone calls, mail and tasks I have to do.

Sorry for the vent - I know there is a thread for that. But it just all came out and I feel better. Now I have to get back to my fondant before it drys out on me.

Oh, did I mention that I can't use my cane because I have a frozen shoulder on that side and my bad leg (the other side) is getting worse. I can't cane with the good arm because then I don't have any way of holding onto things - yes I am a wreck
