  1. Hi Terri,
    I'm so glad that you have a scooter - my mother-in-law called hers a "putt-putt". I'm not shy about using them at all. They often have a line of them, plugged in and ready, at department and grocery stores. If I'm having a bad day, or just have a lot of exploring to do in that store, I'll use one. I rented one when we went to Las Vegas a few years ago, and I happily "putt-putted" up and down the strip!
    Yup, the plaquenil gave me the trots for a while, but then the body got used to it. I'm certainly "regular" every morning now!
    Have a good weekend, and get out there and putt-putt.
    Hugs,
    Marla

    Hello Marla,
    Well i wish your hubby all the best with his paper being accepted, just admit it your ready for travelling again.lol well if you do travel there at least you'll have family with you to enjoy it even more.
    The plaquenil is rough on me marla but my bowels am geting looser mate but i'll just have to wait and see.
    Marla i've come house bound alot with the pain in my legs, so a couple of months back i brought myself an electric scooter and at least i can get back out with my staff, i was feeeling abit paranoid at first nosey neighbours mate plus questions and my hubby went mad he said you need it so take no notice of other's and for the first time today went out and nothing bothered me.

    Have a smashing weekend yourself and your family & takecare mate.

    Luv Terri xxxx
  3. Hi Terri,
    Yes, there are advantages to being married to a military officer - you do get to travel a bit. He's hoping to present a paper at a conference in Berlin next fall. I hope that his paper gets accepted - I would love to travel to Germany. We have a son-in-law who travels there often and loves the city. We're thinking that if we go, Heather and Eric will show up there, too.
    It's a shame that the Plaquenil is so rough on you. It seems to help me a lot. When I skipped a few doses I felt like he!!. Hopefully, the docs can find something else that works for you.
    Your pup is cute! Have a good weekend yourself.
    Hugs,
    Marla

    Hi marla,
    Very nice mate japan, you could have sent for me mate.lol That was nice teaching them how to eat it and i love my cucumber but never tried octopus.
    Well my next appointment is next month to see if i have a polyps, it never ends below and marla i'm thinking of packing the plaquenil in, i can't cope with the side affects with my other tablet's i take it's all to much.
    You takecare dear friend, all my love Terri xxx

  5. Hi Terri,
    LOL - I had a lot of fun. I've traveled in Japan, so I'm very familiar with eating sushi. I had fun teaching the five young ladies how to eat it. I also grossed them out a little bit when I enjoyed a salad of cucumbers and octopus and ordered a sushi roll made with eel. Tee-hee - LOTS of fun!

    Keep me informed on your upcoming appointments. Good luck with all of it - I hope that it gives you some relief.
    Hugs,
    Marla

    My appointment to see the gyno is next month to see if i actually do have a polyps and after that, that same specialist should set me up for a date for burning the uterus.
    Marla i'm really drugged alot lately with all the meds for the other stuff i've got and besides taking paracetamol to go with the plaquenil, then when i'm on a monthly i have to swap from paracetamol to iburophen, christ it's a wonder my system knows where it is.lol
    Besides the side affects off the plaquenil i've not seen my swelling of hands or other any symptoms i have starting to alter yet but thanks for asking mate and really enjoy your evening.

    All my love to you Marla xxxxxxx
  7. Terri,
    I know what you mean about the spasms. My legs spasm and it's really painful.
    I hope that all goes well with your appointment on Monday - let me know.
    I LOVED the picture that you sent. Would you believe that it's by one of my favorite artists? We've had a huge framed print and two smaller ones by that artist hanging in our home for the last 18 years. I'm part Cherokee Indian and I really like Native American art.
    Hugs,
    Marla
  8. Hi Terri,
    We're back from San Francisco. I got my shot, and it hasn't made me voiceless this time (so far, anyway).
    Jeff got his stitches out - it was in his male part - Ouch. The doc was pleased at his progress, and was pleased that we had "used" it a couple of times despite the stitches. He said that it will continue to feel better with plenty of "use" - so that made me happy - LOL!!!
    We had a great time there. We ate lunch in Japantown yesterday. After our appointments, we walked around the Haight-Ashbury neighborhood, which was the origin of the hippie movement in the '60s. We had dinner at our favorite Italian place near our motel.
    On the way home, we stopped and explored the Ikea store, which we've never been in before. We ate Swedish food there for lunch.
    We also made a stop at our favorite bookstore and had a lovely drive home. It was warm and sunny on the coast of California today.
    Hugs,
    Marla
