Re: My dear Joon...

Duane feels faraway from God. For the first time today. Actually he's depressed. He doesn't know what about, maybe it's because he feels far from God, or he's just depressed. I hate this. I don't have words for how much I hate this. It comes from his whole family's view that if you believe in God, y...

Re: Doctor Who

Well, that was wrong :/ . Actually, it was SHADA . Hence the title *head smack*. And I enjoyed it very much. They animated the bits that weren't done due to the BBC strike at the time, and did a decent job of piecing them all together. And TOM BAKER, my Doctor, was there at the end! In all of his oc...

Re: My dear Joon...

We still didn't have his medication, as of this morning. So, I said,"Let's stop at the doctor's office and tell them the problem." What follows is an example of why I lose my mind on a routine basis. Because I called the medication a 'muscle-relaxant', and that's what the pharmacy told me ...

Re: My dear Joon...

Still no refill :( .

The Honey says that the over-the-counter stuff is working, but it's not the muscle-relaxant. Anyway, we do have an appointment with the physical therapist ready to go. I'm just worried about this.

Re: My dear Joon...

Still no referral for physical therapy. Apparently the pharmacy can't get any more of prescription that was ordered for Duane. So they offered to call Dr. W_ for something else, which will take a while; in the meantime, I can give him my migraine formula, I guess. He's been doing so well, I really d...

Re: The Ivy Bush - General Chat

The anti-inflammatory has kicked in and my husband's feeling better. He's just not into having cold packs or the heating pad - must be a guy thing because I reach for them in a heartbeat. Anyway, I'm waiting on a call from the Valley's physical therapist. I'm thinking now we'll go there and see what...

Re: My dear Joon...

I was hoping to get a referral for a chiropractor for Duane, but it's not that easy. Not any more. It used to be that your doctor would refer you to someone that they knew, and had sent other patients to. Now you have to find your own that your insurance will cover. I'm telling them that he's on reg...

Re: The Ivy Bush - General Chat

Duane has scoliosis :/ . He woke up complaining of right lower back pain, and I was able to get him seen this morning. We were worried it was his kidney - he's has stones in the past. So the doctor is palpating his back and side, and thumping on where the organ is. His pain wasn't there. Dr. W_: &qu...

Re: My dear Joon...

Scoliosis...

Did not see that coming. Sixty-seven years old, and this is the first we're hearing of it. So, Duane's got super duper pain meds on board, and a recommendation for physical therapy/chiropractics. Geeze. Uncle Dickon strikes again! :lol:

Re: My dear Joon...

Duane came into my room early, saying that he wants to go to the doctor. His back hurts, and I gave him some of my migraine formula aspirin. It helped the pain, but as the morning wore on, it turns out that he's been having this pain for months. Months. Gets up with it every morning. Just when he wa...

Re: My dear Joon...

We just got home from seeing a public presentation of The Gate . It was wonderful (this was the third time I'd seen it), but I shook like a leaf the entire time. I hate this. I did manage to get it under control by dropping my head to my shoulder, and closing my eyes, but Duane just had to grab my t...

Re: My dear Joon...

Okay. I changed my mind. I'm not donating anything; I'm keeping it all. This is about as close as I get to hoarding, just as long as I can fit everything I keep in one of those fruitcake tins; I own two of them. And I put the crucifix back on the rosary, the wooden one it came with, and just as soon...

Re: My dear Joon...

The thyroid appointment went well. For the next three months Duane's to have labs done the first few days of each month. Right now, he's on the 5 mg tablets to tap down the hormones, and depending on what the results are, he's to stay on them. I apologized to the doctor; I was really scared, and I'm...

Re: The Ivy Bush - General Chat

Happy belated 4th of July, nonetheless. :hug: :bday: :downapint: It was nice. We were finally able to see Star Trek: Beyond , and we loved it. There's a lot going on here as well. I feel like we might have our current government for not much longer, there's too much friction in this coalition. To b...
