Oh St. James, I have missed you and I can't tell you how much I ache for you. I wish I were able to do more for you, but I want you to know that I am here.
Please continue to take care of yourself against this insidious disease that seems hell bent on making your life hell!
Like you have said yourself, so many times, You are not alone! we are here for you!

Thanks Sue and I'm sorry I haven;t been here enough to help you. I finnally was able to stop the traction and instead of injection of morphine I use Liquid morhine ROXANOL. I hate taking this stuff but the pain from my other problems has become unmanageable with this weather. I'm staring to get a handle on the LUPUS and that's a big help with my spinal dificulties sometimes i wonder why I continue to fight.....beacuse I have no other choice and I once was a MARINE that fought for this country so I surely can fight for my life again....it;s just harder 30 years later!!lol
Thanks for holding up the fort and your kind words Sue..hopefully soon I will be back in shape in a few weeks...i hope!!!!!

SUe I'm certainly far from 100% but I am out of bed and out of traction and been able to cut down on the morphine and the LUPUS outbreak is calming down......actually I used some of my own advice and got rid of some aggrivating situations and shortly after they were disposed of I began to come back. Thankd for holding up the fort and sorry I had to leave for so long....but I'm back and doing...fair to better!!!!
