Athritis was mentioned. I'm 38 FFS
Wow. I hope it all turns out all right. Those kind of back problems can lead down a series of drastic decision making.

Gee, thanks, I feel so reassured

I survived the MRI you'll be pleased to hear. If it'd've gone on any longer I'd've probably gone to sleep -it was loud, but with all the earplugs if was almost lulling like the washing machine on spin or the vacuum cleaner. and the "enclosed space" didn't bother me at all -there was at least 6 inches between my face and the top of the tube.

Glad to hear it went well. I hate the closed MRI. Thankfully the last two I had were in an open MRI.

Wow Mon. Hope you're doing okay. We have the technology - we can rebuild.....
Update, FYI Pops got moved from the little local hospital to the big one that specilizes in brain stuff - they put him on blood thinners, the blockage disappeared, no surgery, he's going home toady or tomorrow. He'll need intensive therapy to get past the effects of the stroke, but he ain't gonna die like the first hospital was telling us. WHEW! I say it's all of the Cellar vibes - thanks guys.

I'm not a big baseball fan, but Harry Kalas, voice of the World Champion Phillies just passed away.

I saw 5 cars ignore an ambulance trying to get onto the street to the hospital as they sped by. The siren was blaring and the lights were flashing and the EMT was shaking his fist...okay, that last one was what I imagine he might have been doing, but it was still irresponsible of those people not to stop.

this guy.

he keeps BUGGING me and I'm going to have to be RUDE to get rid of him.
eeeerrrrrrrrgh.

why is it always the absolute NON-chemically attractive men who desire my company?

If I liked him just a smidge, he'd run for the hills. The fact that he rubs me the wrong way in every way makes him lurrrrrrve me. yuk.

good one, SD, but you were invited back to the House of Pleasure a looooong time ago.

this guy is...well, to put it mildly, just the sort I would attract: IOW not any of YOU guys - except for the few here who truly are...you KNOW who you are)

I'm sure he's just trying to "reach out" to another suffering alcoholic; a woman he sees as isolating herself and hugging her resentments, hell bent for the asylum or easeful death. I suppose I should be grateful anyone has taken the interest, the time, the sheer fucking effort to notice my exsistence. It's always gotta be this guy, though, doesn't it?

Chuh.
