    Hi Judy: Couldn't sleep last night. Like that was a news flash eh? So you all got prayed for really well last night lol. How are you feeling? Have been really praying about it. Man it sure got cold over night. Winter has arrived, returned or whatever. Can I come and sit by your fire with my chai or earl grey tea? Take care.

    The good news is we all got prayed for really well last night. The bad news is you couldn't sleep. I am so sorry. I know how miserable that is.

    It is FREEZING here too. Minus 18 with the windchill. I am afraid we have been really spoiled by the spring-like weather and have forgotten what January is supposed to be like around here.

    I had a fire on at 4 a.m. this morning and I would have loved some company! I had to get up because of the teeth/sinus thing. Went back to the dr. at the clinic today and had my sinuses x-rayed. She told me that they are clear. That is impossible! I have had sinus infections for 30 yrs and this is a sinus infection. The pain moves from my teeth (all the top teeth) to the top of my head to my cheeks.

    Would you please pray that the 3 Biaxin I have left get rid of this pain and the infection that is lurking somewhere? I have to try and get over this infection and the effects of the drug to be able to host 3 of my DH's sisters next week. They are coming to say good-bye to Cammie and to visit. I love them all but am not looking forward to it because of how I am feeling.

    Are you feeling any better, Cath? I gather the insomnia is all part of the flare?

    Praying that you have a better night tonight.
    Love, Judy

    Hi Judy: I am wondering if I should switch my praying to the day time lol. I have been praying for Nancy (Bandwoman) and her prayer isn't being answered either. Man this list of God's splainin sure is getting long eh? lol. Seriously will keep praying for you. Lord Jesus please come down now and heal Judy of this sinus infection and please restore her health and please give her strength and stamina to deal with her relatives coming. Thank you in Jesus Name Amen. I wouldn't think a sinus infection would show up on an xray. You know your body and you know when something is wrong so stick with it. The not sleeping is a combo of factors. Just pick one any one. Flare, pain, prednisone it is dark. lol. I just found out today there has been a miscommunication with my rheumatologist. I had started to decrease the prednisone and I wasn't supposed to do that for at least another month. They apologized up and down. Mr. thinks he knows it all aka my son says can you spell lawsuit? Like that will solve the problem. Anyways I am back on the higher dose so things should settle down a bit in the next few days. Heard tonight that Winterlude will not be cancelled. It is snowing in Collingwood and they are happy campers skiers?.
    Take care and keep in touch.
    Love ya

    It is 1 a.m. and I suspect you are up and about like I am. :-( Are you feeling any better now that you've upped the prednisone?

    I had a mix-up with my meds too which caused me problems. I had to see the endocrinologist in the midst of all this sinus stuff because of heart palpitations and his giving me a double dose prescription for T4. Turns out I was taking double the T3 too by mistake which messed up everything.

    I am in terrible pain and don't know now if I still have the sinus infection or dental problems or both. I have had sinus infections before that did not show up on x-ray so, even though the clinic doctor goes by that, I don't think that my PCP will.

    My teeth are killing me and I am asking for prayers that this pain goes away. The pain seems to be concentrated around a root canaled tooth so I certainly hope that is not the problem. Otherwise I will have many appointments, pain and expense. Please God this is not the problem.

    I haven't been out of the house, or much out of bed, for two days. I find the pain overwhelming on top of the expectation of guests coming next week. Two of the sisters will be driving from Toronto sometime next week to visit Cam and say good-bye.

    It is getting cold here. Still no snow to speak of but things are starting to freeze up. We are watching the minus 45 in Winnipeg and hope that it doesn't head this way! We have been so spoiled this winter.

    Hope that you are feeling better, Cath. And that you are sleeping right now.

    Love, Judy

    Hi Judy: I am having computer problems so it is taking a while to answer posts. I have and am praying for a divine intervention for you. Father in Jesus Name please take away all pain, inflamation and infection plaguing Judy right now. Please bring total and complete healing to this area now. Father enough is enough please come and supernaturally intervene and permanently in this situation. Thank you in Jesus Name Amen. I am still not feeling well. Have to see the pain specialist on Mon. Some nights I sleep better than others. . Am still praying for Cam and your family coming next week. Sending you a big hug. Still sitting beside you. Now I am eating strawberries dipped in chocolate. The increased prednisone makes me so hungry.lol. Know that you aren't alone. It is supposed to get really cold over the net 30 days. A big storm is coming tonight and through Mon. I am just going to stay put. Keep in touch. Believing God for a miracle. Waiting to hear about how Cam is doing spiritually. P.S. I am getting cranky with God and telling Him I want permanent solutions to problems.
    Love ya

    Praying that the pain specialist will be able to figure out how to help you tomorrow. I don't know how you deal with all this pain on a regular basis.

    I woke up this morning feeling better than I have in many days and hope that the infection is going to break soon. Nothing is draining which is strange but I will accept whatever is working!

    Thank you so much for your prayers. They are having an effect. I will pray extra hard for you today and tomorrow when you see the pain specialist.

    Love, Judy

    Judy: That is good news. I was praying for you again this morning. I having been asking the Lord for supernatural interventions for you and Bandwoman. I am getting cranky. You should see my "splanin" list. If you are standing behind me in Heaven bring your coffee. You might be there for awhile lol. Believing for a total healing and that God will give you what you need for this week. I've got an idea. If they are coming to your place why don't you go to theirs in Toronto and we could go shopping. I think it is in a week or so they have this thing called Winterlisicious. It is for 2 weeks. The top restaurants only charge at most 50% if their reg. prices for meals. We missed it last year. What you could get for $25. They say a lot of restaurants are already booked. Wouldn't that be fun? We could grab Bandwoman and have a time.lol.
    Seriously thanks for your prayers for Mon. I am really getting clummsy and have almost fallen a couple of times. The weather is supposed to be crappy. I am used to it but not with the walker. I always pray before I go that God will give these guys wisdom. My ankles are still really swollen. There has to be an answer. I guess you guys will be skating on the Rideau after all. Some day we will do it ok? We have to have our dreams and hopes. I wonder what would happen it I tried it with my walker? lol. NO I am believing that some day we will do it. In 1989 I was recovering from knee surgery gone wrong and was in a knee brace. I was told I would never go to the mission field. Well 8 years later God healed my knee and I was in Honduras helping after Hurricane Mitch. So someday my friend we will skate on the Rideau. Well take care and I am praying for you. If they drive you nuts and you need to babble let me know. Believing for a breakthrough for Cam. What a party we are going to have.!!!
    Love ya

    I am so sorry that things aren't any better for you. I will remember to bring my coffee if I end up behind you in that line. Now, that's funny! Asking God for all his 'splainin' while a bunch of very impatient souls are waiting their turn. I can just picture it.

    Believe it or not, I was looking at the flyers with the skates on sale and asked my DH if I should get some. Hope springs eternal with me. He asked me if I thought I would use them as often as I used my new bike last summer. Last spring I was feeling so well that we broke the bank and bought new bikes. Then the DDD symptoms hit. Never did get on those bikes.

    I would so love to be able to skate on the Canal. I really do hope that we can do it one day.

    Wish I could drive as far as Toronto too. Can't do that either. Sigh! I don't know if my SIL would approve of my moving in with her hubby while she is here though. :) Winterliscious sounds wonderful. Some day.

    As I told Nancy, I am feeling so much better today that I am afraid to say it in case it is only temporary. The difference between tonight and last night is nothing short of miraculous. I said that to my sister on the phone and told her that it could only be from prayer since this has never happened so quickly to me before.

    So thank you for praying and I will continue to pray for you, dear Cath, that the pain specialist can do something for you tomorrow.

    Love, Judy
