Hey folks, I'm in the hospital, due to be released tomorrow. I'm on my nieces laptop and basically, I'm talking, she's typing!

The old MS kicked it's heals up big time last week. I have limited use of my hands right now, so work and typing are on the back burner for now. Not to mention a bunch of other things!

Sorry, since Ryan and Daniel are now gone, I have no other way to contact anyone. I do still have my mind and know how to find the site and my password. This will have to do for now! Warren's clueless to computers.

I'm fine for the most part! It's just an MS set back, we all have them from time to time. Mix of stress over the boys and a very early Winter. Hopefully, my hands will work again soon!

Looking forward to at least getting home to read the board!

Smokes -- sorry to hear about the setback. Get better and get your butt back home.

Oddly, winter is a bit late here. It's Oct 5 and we haven't turned on our heat yet. I can't ever remember a year making it to October without turning on the heat at least during the night.

Hi Maureen,
The two most important ladies in my life both have MS, so I know how unpredictable, disappointing and discouraging these flare-ups can be. Hang in there and hopefully you will be back to form and posting all that great advice of yours again soon. Hope you have a speedy recovery and wishing you all the best....Wayne

Hey Maureen,

Sooo sorry about the set back! Just concern yourself with recovering, everything else will find a way to take care of itself.

Yeah you guys got winter storms early this year. I thought fall was here in the south east, I was mistaken. We did cool off to the point where I had the AC off for about a week...well its back to the mid 80's but very high humidity, darn, the AC is back on.

LOL, don't worry about not getting your projects at home done....I thought we had a lifetime to get them completed!

I know all about unexpected medical set backs. Tony has been in the hospital again twice in the past month..one was for his lungs, and yesterday he had a tumorous growth the size of a very large lemon removed from the back of his neck....thankfully the surgeon thinks it is a non cancerous fatty tumor, but it will be examined by the pathologist.

Two nights ago, my youngest son Mike was coming home at 3AM, foggy as heck, hit something that rocked the car pretty bad, glass went flying everywhere. He turned around to hopefully find what he had hit...a deer lay dead in the road! What a mess it made of his car, windshield, passenger fender, passenger door all need replacement! The deer ran into him!

Could car less about the car, but the pics really show how much damage a small deer can do, thankfully it did not come thru the passenger door window!

Anyways, you take care of yourself, and don't over do when you get home! LOL, you know me well so I guess that bit of advice will not go far...I am always over doing!

Take care and hope to hear from you soon!

Sending out a big prayer for you. Here in southern Ontario it is like summer and we regret putting away the air conditioners. Get well soon!

Hi Maureen,
So sorry to hear about the MS. I know what it's like not to be able to use your hands and it's real frustrating. I hope this is over quickly!

Hi Maureen

Do take care of yourself.

I wouldn't worry too much about them boys. The Army will take good care of them.

wow I have missed alot. I am so sorry to hear you are not well Maureen. Time gets away in a hurry. I have been down but not out for a few months now. So I know how hard it can be. I never miss a day without reading the post. Just dont have the energy lately to respond. But with Maureen being sick I had to find the energy.
Please keep us posted. I will be praying for you. Macmom

Hey Maureen,

Sorry to hear of this setback, just now reading about it. Been so busy of late, barely enough time to read the HVAC forums and answer the email questions concerning HVAC.



Glad you're home, don't rush things and get better.


This place will be ok while you heal up, get rested and recover.


Stay focused above and He will carry you through this in due time.



Visit when you can.



Take care and God Bless,
Robert
