T/Duttin prayers

Prayers for Duttin to be strong. To know the meaning of true friendship. To know that when all else fails, we are NEVER alone as long as we have this board. To understand that people and pets come first, walls, floors and windows fall FAR behind!

I prayed for you all last night and wished more than anything that there was something- anything I could do. I realize there isnt..but I do belive you know the importance of this friendship we have forged. Please know Im with you always. You have people who truly care about you and feel every step you take. ok?

Be strong. You have to be. I need you to be, because I cant stand the thought of you going backwards. Youve come so far. Its great that you found a contractor with heart, who understands and Im sure hell do eveything he promises to do- but for now, give it up to them and try to sleep as much as you can and get stronger..the acid tatse in your mouth will go away soon, promise you that.

Please give us (me) updates as you can...and know we are all saying prayers.
Hugs
Nikki

Re: T/Duttin prayers

That was beautiful, Nikki! I kinda felt an e-hug through here.

I have an appt. with the Opthamologist in one hour. I called yesterday and can't believe they got me in this fast. I've been putting off my eye pain for 3 years due to fear but just can't stand the pain anymore. I did talk to my family doctor about it, but only received drops. I was also at the ER a month ago and the doctor saw that my left eye had inflammation in (of?) the optic nerve and rush me in for a CT scan, which of course showed nothing. I'm nervous and excited at the same time. I want answers.

Thank you for saying prayers for us "all". I am most definitely doing the same.

Lots of love to everyone. *hugs*

Re: T/Duttin prayers

Hi Nuthatch, and you once complained I didnt have compassion.... now, youre seeing the real side of me!
I think its safe to say that we are all thinking of our Duttin....and praying that things get better for her. Check my other post to you about your eyes...
Hugs
Nikki

Re: T/Duttin prayers

Well, no, not really. I called you snippy. LOL! I think it was more me than you. No, I know that for a fact! I was really, really frustrated until I found this board. I am SO glad that I am getting to know you, and I'm really enjoying our conversations. You have been extremely helpful! To know that I'm not alone...just ahhh!

Mucho lovin to you and Duttin. *hugs*

Re: T/Duttin prayers

Nikki /Nuthatch,

Doing good,just come from the house and handled it well.My gp has me pretty much covered for the stress right now.

The contents specialist apraiser was very compationate,I had to drop her off a detailed list of items not there and we talked outside of the home and that made it easier to say the least.

Her son has MS,he's 18.

My contractor that will be doing the restoration his grandfather and father have MS.

Both are from different area's of the state.

I'm trying real hard to beat this one,stress levels are high,but manageable.The eyes are still sore,but the past ON may not be healed.my hands are numb,but that can be from the lack of sleep.

with the support and love here and my family and the community support ,I am so overwhelmed,this will keep me heade in the righ direction health wise and spirit wise.

Hoping to find temporary housing soon

Will write more gonna get a nap.

Hugs to ya both

T

Re: T/Duttin prayers

Hey- so glad you are BACK! Im sorry you are dealing with all this, but it does sound like you have a ton of support! Interesting that your neck of the woods is producing all this MS, and for generations even. We have had this conversation before- something is going on in the world/water/air we breathe. Whatever it is, youd think they could figure it out so that they could cure it, huh?
Im having a rough week physically too. My hands and legs are not good- but its now Friday and im planning on doing as little as possible all weekend long.
Will check in with you soon...
hugs back.
Nikki

Re: T/Duttin prayers

Nikki,

You get the rest ya need,sometimes we just need to shut our brains off and relax.

I'd love to catch up on some much needed sleep this weekend,my son has wrestling and I have not seen him much this week.

Gotta get these kids back together and some stability started again.

My eyes are starting to give me fits again,don't need it right now.

Maybe some good rest.

Lets take the weekend off.

T

Re: T/Duttin prayers

T, please take some time for you today. Stay horizontal and do not Over-DO it! Its good that so many people are caring and asking questions, but I know it can be overwhelming. Stay away from people for a few days and try to just deal with this.
Dont get sick ok? No colds allowed.
Ill check on you later.
Hugs

Re: T/Duttin prayers

What exactly is a good day for TV? lol. I spent all morning cleaning, then to pick up my ohter two stepchildren...then to the grocery store, and run errands. Its now after 4- I just fed everyone early since its snowing like crazy out there and I have a feeling we are going to have to take them home early. I havent sat down yet today!
When is spring, again? And, as cold as it is- will we all be complaining of heat exhaustion in another 3 months?
Today has not been a good day for me.
Im glad you are at least relaxing and taking it easy. Try to take advantage of the time you have to do nothing...theres going to be plenty to do, soon enough.
Hugs

Re: T/Duttin prayers

I wish you could get some you time.Did hubby go with you to pick up the kids?

There is nothing on TV today but the down time has done me good.Unless ya wanna listen to a 13 year old whine that she's bored every 5 minutes.

I wish it was a little warmer out,we could of at least done something,but really to cold to even venture out.

Hope you can get a little time for you

Re: T/Duttin prayers

hi. Me time is going to be in an MRI machine the end of the month. I Swear, those 45 minutes might be the only time I get to myself!
Yes, he went with me to both pick them up and drop them off- they ARE his kids! lol. ..but he is useless...as soon as we get them home and they start whining, he turns on the TV and tunes them out. Even the oldest, the one who is "mine' legally, who is usually GONE on the weekends, hangs out to see her brother and sister and doesnt help at all...she is the instigator of the bunch. But the younger two went home, "mine" went to her boyfriends to watch a movie,; and all is silent in the house right now..(if you can forgive the tv sounds coming from my husband in the den).
Started a new workout routine this week..its a series of 12 DVDs, each one is different...no equiptment, just a chair and dumbbells- its the hardest thing Ive ever done. Each tape is 1 hour long, takes me 3 hours to complete it....today's tape had too much jumping in it, thought i was going to die- and every muscle in my body hurts...but you know what? It feels good to say its muscle pain and NOT nerve pain! IM kind of skipping the real intense stuff- i jump on my gazelle and peddle my butt off when it gets too intense, but overall, I think Ill like this...we'll see. Husband wants to start doing it with me starting Monday night, which would be a very good thing for him to do. He is in great shape, but smokes too much and doesnt really get exercise besides work...maybe it will be an "us" thing. lol.
Okay, heading to bed to lay down and read a stupid magazine. First time today Ive really relaxed....
hugs to you..

Re: T/Duttin prayers

Nikki,

Hope your magazine was good,its good hubby wants to exercise with you,I hope he follows through with it.

I'm having a really rough time with my eyes,its the stress.But refuse to give in.

Had to go back to the house today to get or try to find some legal documents and it was really hard as they have started to bag things up.what a disaster,it looked better after the fire than what it did before they started putting things in the kitchen.It was really emotional.

still didn't find what I was looking for,but I didn't go up stairs either.

I'm going in 2 weeks to have a emg/ncs on the right arm,tired of it not wanting to work.

We are gonna get dumped on by snow tomorrow,yea ,nothing worse than being stuck in a hotel room with a 13 year old thats bored.

My highlight of my day is when I got my mail,many nice letters.

I did check in with my DRs. also,so thats done for the week,just wish I could get rid of this headache.

T
