Getting more excited!!

The one month countdown has begun... I even got an email today from Southwest Airlines reminding me that I'm going to St Louis in one month. I cannot begin to describe to you how excited I am that this is finally happening! I have wanted to meet Hummie live and in person for a long time now, and it's really going to happen! We have been planning on some things to do, one of which is to go to this restaurant where they throw rolls at you. Ha! I told her that she just wants to have a reason to get a blackmail picture lol! :p

But more than seeing anything, I am just really looking forward to hanging out with her and her family. They have a really nice patio, and I can see us having fun out there, just relaxing and talking. Oh... and I have to get some quality hot tub time in at her gym, too! Nice and relaxing.... ahhhhh.....

Speaking of relaxing, I have my massage therapy appointment tomorrow. Really looking forward to that, as my neck is all kinds of messed up right now. I am so thankful that I am able to get the massage therapy. My doctor even- without me having to ask- extended my visits so that I could keep going. I have an awesome doctor!

Wow, it's been awhile since I've updated you about health stuff. I'm still having some issues sleeping, but my doctor says it might have something to do with me not using my CPAP machine like I am supposed to. I had a sleep study done three years ago, and they diagnosed me with sleep apnea. I don't like using the CPAP, but I guess I need to get back in the habit of using it if I want to see if it will help me get a good nights sleep, huh?

I have been also seeing a pain management doctor for my Fibro. I have had joint injections twice now, and there is a possibility for a third set on my other side of my neck, since it seems like I haven't gotten any relief from the other injections. The TENS helps for the "right now" pain, but it's not really a long term solution. But hey-- I'll take what I can get, right?

Well, today has been a bittersweet day. I had to say goodbye to a couple of kids that I have come to love. They were foster kids of friends of mine, and today they were reunited with their birth mom permanently. I will miss them!

Well, on that note, I suppose I shall get ready for bed. Sorry this post seemed to go on a lot of tangents.... I guess I had a lot to cover lol!

But more than anything.... I can't wait till June 23rd!!!

Dawn make sure Hummie shares a glass of wine (or two) with you while in that hot tub. That will go a log way towards enhancing the relaxation you can get from the hot tub. I so understand the fibro prob as my wife suffers from it as well. Her prob is exasperated by a thyroid problem she takes a med for. That med stops her from taking pain meds except the over the counter non-aspirin type. Just wanted you to know your not alone in this battle. Hope... No, I know you will enjoy your time with Hummie.
