    Things are very rough and not very good. My pain level is beyond a 10. I have an appt tomorrow with the pain doc so hopefully he will have a plan..... If not, I think I'm screwed! Other then that, I'm still on abx for that stupid infection. Im supposed to be done with those on Friday. I just wish I could get back to my "old" self .

    I hope you got the heart monitor by now. So is that to wear each night or what? I know it's a bit early, but good luck with those appt's Friday. Let me know how all goes! You're in my thoughts & I hope your pain has eased by now too.

    Good luck with the epi, I know they're a pain too. Hopefully your meds will kick in too w/o having to stay 1/2 awake & glassy-eyed. How is your bp & vagal symptoms ?

    OK now I was able to see it knowing what I was looking for. really gets me how fragile the cord is! I was able to get what x-rays I have of my back from my computer posted.
  24. Just wanted to say "hi"
  25. You can see extra "bony" material (calcium deposits) between the vertebrate and the spinal cord. Especially, in the "yellow" one, you can see where the bony material is compressing the cord. My SCI was caused by a fractured calcium deposit at T8-9.

    This cat has a serious Funk blog going on--I recently downloaded this
  45. View Conversation
    hey, if you're into exploring some more drum and bass, is a great site. DJs post mixes there that you can listen/download for free. you can also explore mixes that range from hip hop, latin, breaks, jazz, reggae and everything else. I would recommend listening through a good pair of headphones or stereo for the full effect. It's great for working out, exploratory dance, parties, whatever. Rapidsharing is also good, if you haven't heard, get on that tip. Just look up rapidshare. Basically, it's a way to download anything through links. search any artist or genre and "rapidshare" and you will come upon sites where you can download that music. People have blogs dedicated to posting different music, you'd be amazed. Right now, I listen to a lot of funk, soul,breaks, latin jazz and drum and bass. Alright, chica, nuff gabbin, enjoy.--Nicky

    Hey Danine, how wonderful to meet a fellow water lover.

    What an adorable puppy, in a cute outfit. what is his/her name?

    I am not sure exactly why you are getting skin breakdown. Chlorine levels are monitored in pools so it shouldn't be eating away at yoyr skin.

    more likely your skin is getting 'soggy' and soft from the water and is more prone to damage.

    I sometimes have accidental bumps scrapes like this.....maybe from getting in/out of pool.Keep an eye out next time you go swimming.

    not sure i can help you more. Put opsite or some waterproof dressing on the breakdowns if you are going in the pool with open wounds.

    Have a great new years xoxo
