    It's ok Joe-Joe, SMG said she would forgive you THIS time. hehe- How are you doing? Does the highway being down affected your travels or maybe Jodie. That must have been some fire to melt the steel beams.

    I have been my usualy busy obsessed self. Working threw and beyond the pain in my mid back. BUT I do finally have my front door, screen door and window painted a gorgeous brick red. I still need to put lattice up around the bottom of the porch. The porch floor is set on cinder blocks where the posts are and big ugly gaps inbetween. It is the true trailer trash decoration,lol.

    I looked at silk flowers yesterday but it is 52 foot long-that is why it is still the way it is. I am not a gardner and would rather spend my time making glass or something else-so does anyone have any ideas? I will post a pic later, I am waiting to the sun to come around front.

    I get to go get a bone scan with contrast on my T-spine tomorrow. I saw my GP yesterday and there is a lump on my spine about 3-4 inches long a maybe a inch wide. It has been there for several years and when I am active it causes me pain no med can touch. When I don't do anything it is fine. Well my Dr said "we can't have that". I love her.

    She is sending me to a new pain clinic to see if injections are a option. Has anyone had spinal shots? Just say a prayer for me.

    I see Annie got back, glad your brother is doing better, one step at a time. Sorry Danny is still dealing with his issues too. If ya need some help cleaning up after the bathrooms are done, call me I'll bring a powerwasher and take care if it for you,lol.

    I just got a call I have to take and don't want to lose my post in cyber space- BBL-Carla

    Hi There,
    This wk is what they(garbage people) call Clean Up Wk.
    So you can get rid of the old stuff in your home and around the yard.

    We live in an apartment but believe you me you can still collect a lot of junk in a 2 rm apart.

    We cleaned out the storage rm today.Took a lot of things out that I dont know why I saved it.I must be a pack rat.The rm has been dunged out but you know it still looks full!!!

    Now I will go from rm to rm and try to get some stuff out.I am starting to feel closed in.But lOL it is hard to get a whole lot done.I play out in half an hour of wrk!!!!
    It WILL take me till next falls cleaning day to get it done!!!!!!!!!!!
    Would I love to have someone come in and do every rm in our apartment.A girl can dream cant she!!!!!:>)
    Carla I see NOTHING wrong with using silk flowers.I DO NOT have a green thumb.I killed a cactus!!!! My daughter claims you cannot kill a cactus. WELL I DID!!!!
    I feel bad for every plant or flowers my kids give me.I tell them I am so sorry (the plants),that whatever happens I dont mean to hurt you!!!!

    MrDad; Thanks for keeping the porch light on!!:>)

    You ALL take Care!!

    Hi All,

    Thank you, MrDad, for opening up the new porch. I laughed at your messages to Carla ck.

    Carla, good job on your house! Why not plant perinniels around the base of your porch or little evergreen shrubs that will grow only as high as you want them to. What direction does it mostly face? Hide the blocks. Meanwhile I'm so glad you have a good doc. I saw my PA today and will be having a stress test. Isn't that every day??

    Here in Michigan there are tornado warnings all around, although not here in this county. We have had some big thunderboomers and I can see another one coming. I suppose we need the rain but I sure am ready for some sunshine.

    Hugs to those near and those far,

    Marta and Da Soap

    whoopsie I guess in my haste I posted twice. I will kindly remove it. Glad I was able to give someone a smile today.

    My Gf called, she is having daughter,adult, issues. She just needed to vent then we are supposed to go to a new Dr for her. I have to show up at 8:30 am to get injected then they send me off to come back at 12:30. So in the meantime her and I will take a drive to her Dr to get her new patient package. I live such a exciting life. Just getting her out of the house in a mircle in itself,lol

    Thanks Marta but I really don't want anything that needs water, weeded or trimed. I too have killed a cacti myself.

    Hi Jordoan, did I get that right, sorry. I don
    t think I have seen you here before but glad you are, I think silk rep tulips would look great but I only need about a 100 of then,lol.

    This porch is a real doosie and there is no perfect CHEAP option,hehe.

    Granni you out singin your heart out?

    Linda-good luck with your MRI and it is fixable to. I think my options are nerve blocks or surgery. I have spent some time to check it out. So we will see.

    JOdie try to keep your chin up and move forward , sorry about the elbow

    Hey Carlanl I have been on rollor coaster myself, up down up down very frustrating when our bodies defies us. Hope you feel better soon.

    I think I will turn in early since I have to get up before 7, nity nite all-Carla

    Did you have a party and not invite me???

    I had the pleasure of being injected with radio active material and had a head to toe body scan. The tech let me see it, wish I hadn't looked. Your bones are suppose to appear a uniform grey tone. The 2 biggest areas of pain oare my upper back and the joint of my big toe on my right foot. Those areas lit up like a Christmas tree.
    That is not a good thing. Hopefully I can pick the report up Fri, so keep your fingers crossed and hail mary or 2 wouldn't hurt ;-)

    Where is everyone or I asked that already,hehe. I hope everyone is out having fun and not home in bed. After having to spend 1/2 the day at the hospital I came home did some weedeating until it rained. So I am taking the evening off or should I say on the couch.

    Come out come out where you are- the game is over- now where did Marta put that bottle at? Carla

    Hey Carla-Ck !! You always seem to have such a busy

    day for yourself ! My Son worked in a Groc. Store and

    a Lady use to come into the Store and demanded that

    her idems NOT be scanned ! The young people work-

    ing there would have to ring up the things the Old Way

    while, unbeknownst to her, someone was standing

    behind her shooting her with the Scanning Gun!!

    Sorry! But I loved it. "Damn" young people!

    I still demand that I stand on that Scale looking thing

    and have my feet X-Rayed for the best shoe fitting pos-

    sible. Wonder why my Kids look so ODD ??

    Oh well, who's perfect anyway ('cept SMG) !!

    Hello to ewe awl!

    cody took first place today in the discus throw...the shot put he just said he sucked...i missed his meet i forgot about it. i didn't go to classes today...

    Hi there Porchies,

    I figured that I had better peak in at you all to check to see what I was missing, iof anything. We leave (early in tne AM tomorrow, not even going to tell you how early so we can get to Corpus Christi tomorrow for the KC State Convention.

    Sorry Linda, I have not beengoing to any casinos. When we get back this sunday will have a break to get ready to go OOState to Branson, Mo. They have all kinds of shows there. Name it they have it. It is NOT just for C and W fans anymore, believe me, whoich is good. DH and I do like C and W but we like alot of other kinds of music and entertainment too. Their prices are not bad either, in comparison to places like Lost Wages (-: !!! Casinos will have to wait for awhile . Oh well !!! We are meeting some friends to in Branson so that should be fun ! They live in Illinois.

    Sorry I do not have time for a really good post to everyone individually right now. Have been so busy DH finished the painting in the den yesterday and we had to move the computer and all my genealogy. What a mess and then I had to put all the stuff back again.

    Went to the beauty shop this morning the try and get beautifies this morning bright and early in prep for this weekend and then had to wash and pack. See all the fun I have been having?? Plus I was trying to help a sick friend and take over her job for our club while she was in the hospital. Hope she gets well soon. Might need a pacemaker.

    I know the porch has been slow but I will at least check in to you all to let you know i am still alive, I THINK !! I am SO tired and the thought of having to get up early tomorrow makes me ILL (ER) !!! Hmmm, is that a word? Iller ???? I doubt it.

    I promise to try and get back to you all on monday. Stay safe, warm and HAPPY. Wow it is pouring outside and thundering and lightening. I probably should get off this computer.

    MRDAD - I sure like that OH OH Forgettios or whatever you said. That sounds like me alot.

    Ck - I hope that growth on your spine is OK. Sounds so painful !!!

    Special Hi to Jodie, Lida, Mrdad,Carlas, Marta, Annie etc. . Welcome Jordane !!!If you have been here before I don't remember but don't take that personally (-: !!!

    Bye for now. Gotta go cook dinner. Where is Gordon when I need him (-: ????

    Lotsa hugs to all,

    Granni

    Sorry but I forgot to mention that this weeke I had lab work done and also had another bone density scan done to see if the Forteo has been of any help yet with my severe osteoporosis. I sure hope so.

    Please say a prayer or two for me. I go back on tuesday to talk to the doc about the results, etc.

    Love,

    Granni

    and where is everyone. I see Granni went to Branson did everyone follow her??

    Linda I bet you are glad it is Friday. I hope you get some good R and R this weekend.

    Mrdad- you have been quiet this week. I hope it is more fun than work.

    Jodie I hope you are doing better and taking the garbage out of your life, if you get my drift, Glad Cody did well at the track meet. Just keep focusing on YOU and Cody and school. The rest will come.

    Well I got my bone scan results- I have degenerative changes in my cervical and thoracic spine and bone spurs. From the info I reseached I believe the lump is a muscle or ligament that has over compensated and thickened because of the disc movement. The report said "do not feel it is a malignancy IF the colon cancer was cured 10 years ago".

    I am being referred to a new pain clinic to see if I am a candidate for injections or thoracic epiderals. They are currently making appts in mid June. I picked up a new patient packet and am to return it, then they will tell me IF I will be seen based on the records.

    So we will see, I am on my max of pain meds and muscle relaxers and as long as I don't use my arms and upper body it isn't that bad. But I thought I was going to die using the powerwashing and staining my porch. I even wired the trigger shut on the powerwahser so I could hold it differently to take the stress of my back.

    I am at the shop today, been here 2 hours and not a customer yet. I do have some research to do for my boss and have had no luck so far. She gave me a plate and I have to look threw all of her glass books to find this pattern., 4 books down and not sure how many more to go.

    I hope everyone has a happy and healthy weekend-Carla

    Hi, Everyone ~

    It's a beautiful day here in Michigan, the birds are singing and the trees are greening up along with everything else. I just wanted you all to know I'm thinking of you and hope you have a good weekend ---- from the sound of many of us, I hope we all get through the weekend!

    Jodie, I'm hollering YEAAAAAA for Cody and his first place win. Way to bounce back!

    Linda, you're a good daughter. I realize that I've thought that for years now and I'm proud to call you a Porch buddy. Mom and Dad did good.

    Marilyn, oh.... she's already left. I was going to tell her not to bet the farm. She left her rabbit's foot in her chair.

    Carla ck, you sure are a fighter. "As long as you don't use your arms or upper body"?? Goodness me, that won't do for you at all. Let's have us a miracle, OK?

    Hugs to all the rest of you too, Joe, Rocky, Annie, wherever you are, Rafiki, Carla nl, and all those we don't see very often anymore. Your chairs are still here and you're blankets are clean. Come on out!

    i met a nice guy last night who doesn't drink at all...he wants me to help him work out on legs at the gym...then i called him today...he informed me that he had just gotten out of a relationship w/an exgf and has decided he does infact love her. and he thinks he was to call her and see if she wants to get back together.

    and made a statement that he hopes that he possibly didn't hurt another person in the process, meaning me. i said not at all...he said he still wanted to work out at the gym even if i decide i don't want to join my old gym...well anyways..everything is cool between us...he said he was glad that i was handling the situation maturely. i said we meet certain people in our lives for a reason and we don't why at the time. but anyways more was said...

    i met a friend for a drink. but i was so tired i didn't even want to finish my beer. people were sayinng jodie are you ok? meaning i looked really tired.. i said i am.

    my friend gave me two plates of chicken, garlic mashed tators, and corn and broccoli...i'm too tired to even eat that, nibbling it...cody had his food...

    well gonna go now..

    i wanted to say to ck i am trying to clean out my exbf stuff..i hadn't mentioned to you or anyone but my sister....then just fightforcure...but basically we sort of hooked up a few times...and well i can not deal w/his toxic drama lying life anymore....i a officially done w/him maybe if he ever sobers up. but he is doing too much drinking, lying and other things...


    ck i hope they figure out your back situation...

    hi granni, marta, jordane, linda, carla mr.dad and anyone else i may have forgotten.

    Big Cinco De Mayo celebrations today in S.F. and
    thoughout "Kaliphonia". As you probably know, it
    commenmorates the Victory of the Mexicans over the
    French Colonial Power in the Battle of Pueblo, May 5,
    1862. I'm in S.F. 'cause my French Greatgrandfather
    was on the losing end of that Battle. He was a French
    Marine under Napoleon III and his Nephew, Maxi-
    millian. He was 38 y.o then and had been at War
    from Brittany France seen he was a 14 y.o. Cabin Boy
    on the French War Ship.

    Apres the Battle of Pueblo, the French Fleet fled Mexico
    taking refuge in the Harbor of Monterey California.
    With the Franco-Prussian War looming, he opted to
    desert and flee to San Francisco. So I guess he would
    be considered an "illegal alien from Mexico"? The
    American Civil War was ongoing so I think the Gov.
    had other concerns ! He lived to be a VERY old man
    dying at the age of 87. Amazing considering all he
    went thru in his early adulthood!

    I still have the Medals awarded to him in not only the
    battles in Mexico, but also the French campaign again-
    st Girabaldi in Italy in the 1840's. They will be passed
    on to my Son among other historical idems I was
    entrusted with. Didn't know until recently that his name
    was also JOSEPH! He is buried in the Family plot.

    Now, where's my "Fair Play for France" placard to bring
    to the Park later?

    Huggles and Buenas Nachos!
    MRDAD

    Just got to drop in now and then and check on ya'll!!

    Carla - I've been going through it with my back too. Degenerative disc from top to bottom, bone spurs, slipped vertabre, stenosis... ugh! Alot of arm and shoulder pain and my midback feels like its on fire!

    Anyway, about the shots. I'm having my 3rd set of Depo-medrol shots into c4,5&6 on Tuesday. Can't tell that they have helped much though my hands aren't going numb quite as much. They go in through your thorasic and run a cathator up the neck. I'm having mine done at a spine center so they do it right in the office with a fluoroscope. They hurt a lot. But, the injections don't take long. I have increased pain and headaches for a few days after. This is like a last ditch effort for me before surgury.

    Hubby is having the same in his lumbar. Different steroid though. His hasn't helped much either. I hear some people get great relief from them some don't.

    There is a great website that Tonakay turned me on to that may help you. It's called Spine Universe. Check it out. Lots of info there.. In the meantime, I'm glad they don't think it's the big C. Thinking of you!!

    Hugs!
