Hi all.

I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving. Ours went well. We had it here. Relaxing.

Saturday night I had to bring my DH to the hospital. We thought he had a slipped disc and that's why his legs were hurting/stiff. Turns out he has blood clots (he's had them before---two pulmonary embolisms within the past 6 years). Anyway, he's still there. I can't visit because the baby is sick. Ugh. And now my anxiety is high over what's going to happen with work and whatnot.

I did see my doctor for a follow-up for my BP meds and my zoloft. I was going to ask for something for extra anxiety, but decided against it. If it gets really bad, I'll go back. I'm hoping once he gets released and comes home that will relieve some of it.

How are all you guys doing?

Sending positive energy your way and keeping your family in my meditations.

All is well here.  I finally got that settlement money I have been waiting for.  We finally bought that truck I have had my eye on.  I love it.  It's a Ford F-150 with the crew cab.  It has way too many bells and whistles. 

I was also able to do my Christmas Shopping.  I loaded up on deals on-line.  I hate shopping but on-line shopping is a breeze. 

I'm a bit anxious these days myself.  T'is the season and all that but you now have a added stressor.  You just can't seem to catch a break.  I've been there.  If you need to just rant and rave, I have two dry shoulders.

How are you doing?

Just read your post.

So sorry about your husband and hope your baby is feeling better.

It's hard enough dealing with ALL of that without the anxiety.

Last year my dd was in the hospital and we are so thank-ful she is okay.

Her anxiety is high right now but she has a lot going on but is doing so much better.

We got to talk today which is wonderful as I didn't get to see her on Friday...:(...

Miss each other like crazy!

My very best wishes to you, hope you are doing okay yourself.
