I am very sorry to have not been much of a presence. I have read and prayed and thought of you all, but it has been hard to reply. I am on medications that should not be suddenly stopped but a nurse at the docs office decided that I couldn't have refills because I 'missed' an appointment - the appointment that the doctor refused to see me because I was ill. Cold turkey is not fun. Add in that three days before I knew about that issue I started a virus and things have been really really bad. husband had to take me to the ER this am because I was just too sick. The docs there astonished me - seems to be a whole new crop in the ER because the old ones treated me like a crack addict instead of a patient even before I was ever on pain medications. They fixed me up and I am starting to feel stronger, but will be taking it easy for the next week or so. I see the doctor on the 4th and will be giving him a letter about all of this. Anyway, just wanted to let you know what is going on.
