In the "What Next" category! Peyton (my great-nephew with all of the health issues) broke his ankle in gym yesterday. When he was asked about his pain level, he said almost to the crying stage. Which means he is in severe pain because his tolerance for pain is extremely high. Please say a prayer that he won't require surgery for it. They put a brace on it at Quick Care and he is to see an orthopedic doctor as soon as it can be scheduled. Really want to wrap him up in bubble wrap.
Carolyn, there is so much pain in your circle of loved ones. I wish the best for them all!
Linny I am sitting here in awe of the courage, integrity and strength of the people on the East Coast. The devastation is absolutely horrible. How are you doing? What impact is the storm having on you?
Thanks Lori and Missa! This makes the 3rd confirmed break he has had and he is only 12. This time the bone splintered. I worry that he has my problem (I have extreme osteoporosis and another condition that I can't spell right now, but causes bad bones and lesions that can affect the nerves.) Mix that with the massive doses of steroids he and I both have had to take, it is a miracle we haven't had more breaks. If Peyton had to inherit something from his Nana and from me, why couldn't he have inherited our good looks instead of bad lungs and bones? to keep from crying!

Hey ladies...feeling much better today which is good since tonight will be crazy with our church activities.
Carolyn, so sorry to hear Payton broke his ankle! Prayers he is comfortable soon.
Lori, what caused your back issues? I know it was awhile ago. Have you seen a chiropractor before? I know not everyone likes them but I have had some great results. Depends on why the back is hurting though. Prayers you get some relief soon!
Sher...I am not sure what I did. I just know that I sat in the rink on the bleachers for 1 1/2 hrs. This rink is cold so I took my Lava Buns to sit on (you throw the inside of the cushion in the micro to warm it). That stayed practically hot till the last 30 min or so. I carried a blanket, my purse, my knitting bag, and coffee with me. Time to stand up and woah!!! Been hurting ever since. Today was not bad till about noon. Now can't stand straight again.
I have seen a chiro before. I personally think this is a muscle issue. The left side gets so tight. I'm wondering if the hot and cold together had something to do with it. I don't think what I was carrying was that heavy but....
Missa, we were very fortunate! We were scared as it was our first hurricane with such force, but we are fine as are my family and friends! Unfortunately, some of my family members are without power. But when you see the devastation that others have experienced, it really is not a big deal. The death toll keeps increasing and this saddens me. To think, such beautiful trees that we admire, especially this time of year when they are changing their colors, proved to be weapons fueled by wind.
Whenever we would see hurricanes, tornados and earthquakes in other parts of the country, I would always say, I'm so thankful to be in a part of the country that doesn't have to deal with that. In the past couple of years NY has experienced all three! Weather has really become unpredictable.
