  • hay kristina - im surprised you couldnt come with something more heinous than the electric shock - maybe something like- putting in a whirl bath and throwing in a radio thats plugged into the walll OR maybe putting me a pail of water 1 st before the tests were done, if i had you for a nurse i think i would run!!!!!???? _______________________ deep fryed me .!!!

  • The radio in the tub wouldn't work- not enough suffering for an old goat like you!! LOL

    Glad you survived!! Hope the achyness is going away.

    Off to have some wine and bake a cake.....

  • are you saying your favorite wine is you want cake?????? hows the old waist line doing these days anyways??????? i have no room to talk i still am 7b lbs heavery than i was before all this crap in dec. 26 started- you know i gotta start getting some addresses so can mail stuff, it would be faster than the rate im learning the comp,HA HA HA ya ya. ---------- old goat me.

  • I lost 3 lbs this week!! Been trying to walk a lot and ride bike every day. I am still about 40 lbs heavier than I want to be, but would be thrilled with losing 30 more as that would put me where I was before the flare and gain from steroids.

    This cake is for a friends bday, I wont be eating any of it, just dropping it off in London on my way through to to visit Hazel in N Wales tomorrow! I can't wait!

  • well, will eat a slice for me then please. what kind of cake was it ? i made brownies today , ill eat some for you- thats only fair- actually i still am 7 to 8 pounds heavier yhan i was back in dec . 2011 . but i getting better at not eating so much- trying to rid my self of the cig s isnt helping any. ------- p.s. how many brownies do i eat for you my dear---------- jet

  • Goodness me all this cake talk, is reminding of the abundant supply of donuts in Poland, on my recent visit... well it was minus 30 some of the time, excuses etc etc, however I am getting smaller! Hope you feel better soon Jet MF x

  • well back to dartmoth tomorrow 1 st meeting with a dc brooke judd-she is a sleep study doctor, they sent me some paper work to fill out ,i also just did a questioneir on line.had to push back appt. with podiatrist till may 7th, im guessing tomorow will just be some type of consultation of sorts- then i will know more of just what will be taking place after that??? kristina are you ok, havent heard from you since feb.-19 th--hope things are well- drop me a note when you get a chance-------------------------------- snozzy jet

  • o -well another appt. at dartmouth done, blood work for " T " count done , A.V.N. is getting worse faster than expected- i asked dr chou about this before but he really couldnt say because of all the other problems i have that can effect it . going to see a surgen on the 29 th , more x-rays - then see the new dc. - dc chou said to me ,dont get your hopes up ,its going to be tough to get a surgen that will be willing to operate on you simply because of all your problems. but hipps espeacilly are going bad quick . i asked about physical therapy as im not going to lose this extra 8 - 10 lbs by sitting around doing nothing? he said he cant prescribe it BUT surgen can , so i guess i wait- dc chou was not impressed with the results of sleep study- he says you have a bad problem with this and we are going to have to watch it . ----------------- jet
