Sorry, I haven't been posting

I hope you all had a wonderful International Marine Worm Day last Friday. good news- My son finally got medical assistance so his expensive not yet generic meds will be covered by the state and Fed gov't(I'm in the US). Our private insurance still left a large co-pay. I am having ongoing pain in my hip and back and am making an appt with a new orthopedic surgeon("fired" my old one.it hurts enough to wake me up if I move at night(and I was already waking at night). During the day- I can deal with it-meds, heat, bath, suffering- but I would like to sleep!

I am pleased you got medical coverage, it must have been quite a worry having to find so much for the co-pays every month.

I hope you are going to be OK with the heat and storms that I believe you are having in America?

Best wishes,

Brian

Glad to hear that you've got the help with the cost of the meds. 👍😊

I hope that your new dr can help you with your pain, as lack of sleep really doesn't help when you're ill.

Good luck and best wishes 🌸

Glad to have you back with us and that your son is getting the help he needs with the costs of the meds. Sorry you are in such bad pain I know the feeling as if I just turn in the night I am awake with the pain, hence last nights joining in the posts at about 3am. Hope the new ortho specialist can help.x

Hi Hurtingmom

It is genuinely wonderful to hear from you my friend. I am delighted to read that your son got medical assistance and I want to sincerely wish him all the best of luck. I am so genuinely sorry to read that you still have ongoing pain in your hips and back however. I want to sincerely wish you all the best of luck, and please take care of yourself.

All my hopes and dreams for you

Had a ball with our house party for the marine worms and all got drunk as skunks so did the worms we brought to the party. So glad that you have your medical insurance sorted and hope you can get some sleep soon

Tragic news about the shootings of both civilians and police officers in Dallas. I Pray that it will sort itself out very soon.

Keep safe. Best wishes from London. :))))

That made me laugh- about the drunk worms- I told my ocean educator too- at a time when there is not much funny here.
