Monday Latte Ladies is one of my favorite threads on this board.
  To me it's like we're all sitting together at a cafe having our morning coffees.
That would be sooo nice wouldn't it?
I'm drinking a cola,  (well it's afternoon for me... but maybe later on I'll have a " cafe macchiato".)

Hope you all have a wonderful week.... I'll check in once in awhile when I feel up to it.  

Thank you all for keep the board moving, I knew I could count on you all... and U2 Thia!  ;O)

As you know or suspect the reason for my time off is due to my declining health.  I do have some good news though.  This morning I had the MRT(with contrast fluid) and the results were good.  Whatever is starting up all my orginal symptoms again, causing the shoulder/arm /hand  pain and making me tip over and walk like a drunken soldier again is NOT coming from the neck.  The titan cage that was implanted in May is sitting perfectly and healing into the bone nicely.  The spinal canal  still has the bubble  but we could see that it did decrease in size and that's good news. The bubble before had closed off the entire spinal canal (slowly/quickly killing off the nerves) and now that it decreased it's only blocking about 1/3 of it. That is is why I was making such good progress before November,  just still not sure what's happening now but I'm happy that it is not the neck area.     Friday I have an appointment with my neurologist and I'll see what she will do next step by step thru elimination she'll figure it all out . 

That's my news and I'll talk to you all soon,,, I do read the replies , I just can't spend time typing... so off to the couch with me......  Have a great week everyone!           

Oh, Coffee had spent a lovely 12 days with me but her daddy came to collect her on saturday, it was a very very sweet reunion .     We all met at the mall on rainy Saturday and I got to see " not so little anymore Mikie.  "  Smiley little guy, a real flirt!  ;O)

It's good to hear from you, Suzan! I'm sorry your health has declined, but glad of what good news you did get and that you have a few answers. And at this imagined table, I've got a cup of coffee with sugar free hazelnut creamer in it, lol!

Today I'm doing my usual laundry and will go for a few errands a little later.
Tomorrow I've got to go in for a blood test my .... some sort of oncologist, I think, wants me to have. I'm hoping my TGH (or something like that) level will be down. It's been sky high (really Sky High) and he doesn't know why. I'm getting fed up with all the tests and appts. because I feel fine and hate to constantly be told something is still wrong, lol. And because I still hate going to the doctor - even nice doctors, lol.
The rest of the week looks open and ordinary. Just the same old cleaning, errands, reading, computer play and tv.

Suzan, That is good news it is not in your neck.Sure hope your docs figure it out soon. I can imagine it is tiring & the stress over it all does not help. Rest & take care of you. We usre miss you...post as you can

My week was mostly work as usual. LOTS of cleaning.With all the quick activity on the house buying, we will be looking for someone to paint for us.We just don't have time & want it done all at once.Hoping my BIL is between jobs and can help out.We have a few friends in the home contractor biz that can help out. 
Hope everybuddies week has been great!
