Hey all. Home from the Hospice center, with a pain pump, instead of having to take liquid or pills every 3 hours, and glad to be done. This should make sleep a little better!!

Am shocked to see it is 28 degrees in Nashville with Snow and 70 here in Florida where we are. Wow!!

Love to all. Hanging in there.

As long as the pain is pumped AWAY, then we are all happy.

Take care m'friend.

Eric,

It is good to hear that they are responsive and dealing with pain issues. As a survivor I can put up with a lot of stuff, but I am afraid of pain.

It is even getting cooler here in South Carolina with a high of 48 degrees expected by tomorrow. We may have to take a quick trip south to Florida as well.

I am glad you are hanging in there and hopefully pain free.

Blessings and prayers.

Best Regards,

Paul Adams

Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance!

Glad you have the pain pump, it always seems to do better. Right now, the 70 degrees sounds great. Going down to 25 tonight in Atlanta.

So pleased that you have a responsive Hospice, Eric! Glad to know they are taking care of your pain needs so you can pay attention to LIVING!

Good to see you posting as you are able. I'm envious of your 70 degrees. I woke to 11 degrees this AM. Yuck!

Love & Hugs to both you and Michelle,

Terry

Glad you're home and pain free. That sounds good. Can't think of anything worse than being in lots of pain. Enjoy your lovely weather. Best wishes.
