 I tried to get on here last night but for some reason it wouldn't except my user name , then I tried with my e-mail address then it wouldn't except my pass word. I gave up and tonight everything is okay.. Then it took me all over the place on other ivillaage boards, but I made here, some how. , Did I read right, that ivillage is going to change? I was tired so I thought this morning II must have inmagined it. If I was reading it, then I will probably be lost when every thing is said and done.I already see some changes and they  look great.

Finally had my MRI done Monday. Appointment was at 8 a.m. but they said be there early to fill out paper work. I got there was given the paper work answer a couple of questions and they called me back and I never did finish the paper work. It was cooler all these past mornings so I wore my sweats . Boy was I glad. All I had to do was take my bra off and get on the table. It was so cold in there. I had to be on that table for an hour on my back. I can not lay on my back at all. Of course they put the pillow under my knees to help, but when they were done I was in tears and had trouble walking. I get the results this Friday morning. The doctors office called to remind me of my appointment and ask me to be there earlier .My right hand and fingers have been going partally numb. It keeps reacurring. Waiting to hear from my son to hear what he thinks  what that might be.

Been trying to do a little trimming in the yard when I can. I'm afraid if I stop moving all together then I might as well give up and lay down. Have always thought that way. My dad was like that to. Halloween tonight. We live at the very end of a dead end street and we have hardly any kids on our street. We do not celebrate Halloween any how. But we have been in this house 5 yrs and never had one trick or treater.. But that didn't stop my D/H from buying candy just in case.... Hope you all are doing well and those who were in Sandys way are safe.. Have a good one, ellie-mite ( do we not have spell check any more or I just do not know how to do it now?)

Things are a bit messed up here at our iVillage boards - yet again, Ellie!  It is not your imagination.  And yes, there have been yet more changes. The techs at iVillage are now controling the boards again. They took over control from Lithium just a bit ago.  They had hoped to have worked out any of the major glitches before they went live, but...!  And now, of course, even if they could get to their offices to work they don't have power.  They are in Manhattan and good ol' Sandy got them big time.

Hope the docs can figure out what is going on and help you, Ellie. I know how you feel about lying on your back for any length of time - I can't either, and so often they just don't seem to care!

But, of course, your DH *must* buy Halloween candy ~~ just in case, don'tcha know!

Ellie, if you are cold ask for a blanket.  They can do that.  I continue to pray for you.  Let us know the news.
