Yes, Paulann, we do face-time & I get videos & phots every single day---it just makes me miss him more! He is now 3 mornings (3 hrs only) in a nursery while my DD writes her Ph D. and holds down a part time job. I really don't know how she does that. He is a really good baby & takes everything in stride. He is so happy. She was the same way & in fact, she still is.
I am seeing a vascular surgeon this Fri to see if he can advise me on what route to take. I need to find not just pain appeasement but the source of the problem. I refuse to lie down & play dead!
I want to go abroad in the summer but know that this won't be possible IF I can't find some pain relief---I am highly motivated. We want to see part of the French Open (tennis) in Paris, if possible. Lots of ideas floating around but nothing nailed down.

Sandi - I love your spunk!!! I agree you are way to young to lie down and play dead and have way too much to do/see in this amazing world. I too will be praying for this vascular surgeon to provide answers during Fridays appointment.

He's gorgeous, Sandi! Really an angelic little face. I know you wish you could love on him from near rather than far.
I know how you're feeling with your back. I'm in much the same boat. In pain almost all the time when I walk or stand. I'm okay when I sit or lay down. Seeing another spinal orthopedist in two weeks to see what he says. After PT, acupuncture, rest, massage still no relief. Using a cane now to relieve the pain of all my weight on my right leg where the shooting pins and needles go all the way down to the toes.

Sue, I really am sorry---it sounds a lot like sciatica? I have tried all of those things too without much relief. Maybe it comes from having compact bodies?
On a more serious note, I am not taking the pain meds---can't even take ibuprofen because of my vascular issues. I could take the Gabapentin but it has too many side-effects for me. I am a "do not take meds kind of person" because I feel the side effects are worse than the "disease." I will continue w/the injections though even though they only give temp. relief from the occipital headaches, as they are totally natural. I also continue w/massage---temp. but good! Lidocaine patches give some relief (script %).
So, should we meet up at the "old" folks home? We could bring our canes!
I plan to keep moving as much as I can, but I have to stop trimming the pups for now due to a tremor.
