We're under a storm watch as I type this. I hope it will be lifted prior to when I leave for my Dr's appointment. My muscles keep finding new and improved ways to keep me sedentary. The latest is swelling in my lower limbs when I try to increase my walking.
Scared the dickens out of me! It turned out not to be a symptom of coronary congestion, but some bizarre fluid distribution due to local muscle strain. So I'm currently spending a lot of time with my legs propped up. I swear my bod is 20 years older than I am!
Have a great day, all!
I may dwell on the land, but I live at sea!
Sensation 2/03 I disembarked, but never really left the ship.
Enchantment 9/03 Just had to go back.
Inspiration 3/04 Just have to go back again, and again, and again...
Sensation 04/05 The vessel made me do it!
We could use some rain here in Fl. Real dry. Seahunks, does the weather affect you? I know I get bothered in my fingers and knees w/ swelling when the pressure drops. Those storms are nasty!!! Y2C.... wheres my coffee? Just kidding. Am up to do some last minute yard work and to make sure the plants are ok before takeoff. 48 hours and counting. All of DH's precious " stuff" arrived in Anchorage. He's a happy man. have lots of running around today too. Take care
Good morning from Southern California where I have slept about two hours after being with my wonderful husband in an ICU. He suffered major seizures. It took about 12 hours to get him out of the ER. Please pray for him. I know that this is supposed to be an ebulent site for happy people who travel. Perhaps I should stop posting? Right now, I doubt if I (or Keith) will ever be in that enviable group again.
Good morning from Orlando where it's back to work after 5 days off. Didn't really feel like time off between graduation and dad being Baker Acted and moved to the Alzheimers unit in the middle of giving a luau for daughter.......it all got done and now we've entered a new phase in my fathers care.......he can't name his kids anymore.....sigh........
J, keep on posting!!! We take the good with the bad on the chit chat board......
Good morning all! Happy Tuesday. It is a pretty day here so far....and much cooler. It felt so good outside this morning. Since I was off most of yesterday, I have a very full plate today at work. You all have a wonderful day.

It's a bit cloudy today in upstate NY, but the day is supposed to be sunny. I certainly hope so, I've got to get at that mowing. It's growing faster than I can mow it!
Judy, I hope that things can turn around for Keith. Even if you don't have time to post, you will still be in our prayers.
Angela, hang in there too. The prayers are being sent your way too.
Judith, don't you dare stop posting! We are "family" and we care about you and Keith!
We're all pulling and praying for both of you, so you'd better keep us posted!
Montreal seems to be under some big black cloud. It's wet, cold and miserable, and temps have gone back to 10C or 50F. The only ones happy are the grass and flowers!
It's going to be a 3 day work week for me, after yesterday's holiday, I'm also taking Fri. off to take my mom for another test and a diagnosis/prognosis meeting with the Dr.
Not looking forward to that.
Good Morning Mates, Sending out prayers for you all, I know that prayers can be answered and the more the better for us. "He" listens to us all. I know without all of your prayers when I was going thru my thing in Feb. I wouldn't be sitting here right now.
Good Morning CM's,
From the land of the seemingly endless tornadoes. It may come as no surprise that the movie Twister was filmed just a couple miles from my home. Last night was the fourth night in a row tornadoes were spotted within a 50 mile radius. I always thought Kansas was the true tornadoe alley but I think central Iowa currently has the record for most tornadoes this season. If thats not scary enough the damage from local flooding is nearing disaster proportions. The most horrific part is how quickly some of the areas have flooded. Yesterday there was a car dealer that didnt have the time to move his car and over 70 were ruined.

Good Morning all...

Prayers are being sent your way from across the land....What a wonderful way for us to support you and your family....I hope today, brings you good news.
Good morning Cruisers. I pulled a muscle in my chest this weekend lifting a suitcase and am now dealing with pain and inflammation. Feels like I've been punched in the chest. I've had it before, so I know exactly what it is, and there's not much you can do but take aspirin until it goes away. Ow.
Judith, don't quit posting - the Chit-Chat board is where we support each other. Like Rollerdonna said, we are a family and care about you and Keith. Please keep us updated and I will keep him in my prayers.
Sue - prayers going out for you, too.
Everyone have a great day. Reason to be happy: "Tuesday: it's not Monday!"

A beauty again today. Could use some rain though, it is so dry around here. Daughter said that the Grandson is officially potty trained, no accidents for a week. Me and my big mouth… “Papa will take you flying if you don’t doo in your pants anymore”. I guess I’m renting a craft over the 4th weekend and flying around St. Petersburg.
Uhhh…Michelle…you could have some-one rub it for you…Excuse me I think I’m going to my room now…lol

Jason If a grin is transmittable, and laughing is contagious, here’s hoping for an epidemic!
Going to be a beautiful day here in NYC and I am stranded in a little cubicle 27 stories up. My prayers are with all those who are having troubles. Please contiue to post them. Those that do not like them have the power to skip over them.

bigjohn, I could use a Pina Colada right about now! I just walked the dog and got caught in the rain, AND could see my breath it was so cold! Thanks alot, now I am going to have that song in my brain all day!! <VB>
Judith: Chin up, some very nasty situations can turn around. I have not posted for a couple years, I couldn't bear to change my address gram of 10, and that is no longer true. I will not tell you what tragedies were at this house but suffice to say I understand the pain of Laci Peterson's mother. Many times I read this board, and without posting, I let it be a friend listening. Many, many times I was jealous of the close knit family on this board, it behaved better than some real families. Keep posting, let them share your burden, sometimes someone will say something so helpful without even knowing it that you will be able to take so much comfort that you will be able to sleep that night, and you have to take care of you so you can have the strength you need for the days ahead. See you again (on the board) real soon.
I was about to pick on Michelle, but then I read Cherie's post and it makes me realize that there are many people really hurting out there. Cherie, keep your head up, hang in there, and with time, some of the hurt may be bearable. Our prayers go out to you and your family.
Now about you Michelle, <G> aw the heck with it, just get Mark to help you out. If you are lucky, you will be able to forget all about those sore muscles.
Oh BTW, aren't you packing a little early for your cruise?
I know...I'm such a nerd...at least that what my DW tells me, and I believe everything she tells me. ;-)
I decided to tackle the garage and get some work done before turning on my computer today. Lots going on here.
Prayers going out for all of you in general and for the needs that have been more specific. It's great that we have a place to share our joys and our sorrows. I'm glad the powers that be behind this message board provided the chit chat board where we cruise lovers can share in other life experiences too.
