Thank you all for your well wishes. As you can tell by the time of this post, my effort to get some sleep isn't going to well. I did manage to doze for about 20 minutes. I am glad that all of this medical stuff is happening in June. That way I can enjoy the summer. Everything will be out of the way. I am not expecting for them to find anything drastically wrong. It is all more of a followup than anything else. Except for this eye thing. This is entirely new.

Good luck with your check-up, Addie. At my doctor's appointment yesterday I found out that I'm shorter; I've always been 5'7" but now I'm 5'6". And I've been referred to an audiologist for the tinnitus. Actually I think the whistling noise is empty-head syndrome -- just the wind blowing in one ear and out the other.

I am off to my last pain management class! I am so proud of myself that I not only finished it this time but that I am using the things I learned and it is turning my life around. It is amazing how a bunch of little steps can lead to big changes. The two biggest for me are feeling more fit and more positive/less stressed!

I am also so excited to give them my cupcakes. It is just getting them there on transit with a cane and bag that will be the problem but I will manage!
