Re: hi again

ladybuggy, Just wanted to say good luck with the epidural. I'm glad you chose to try it. We never know unless we try, right? Please let us know how it goes. Just remember, that there may be more pain at the site, for a little bit, but that is normal. Take care, cmpgirl

Re: hi again

I agree. One never knows until they try it and I will be praying that it gives you some much needed relief. Good luck.
