    OH Crystal, I'm so sorry to hear all that you're going through!! I hope you can get into that doctor/endocrinologist soon! You'd think they'd take emergency visits to get you on to where you need to go. Gosh, how frustrating to have to wait when you really need to be seen now.

    Will keep you in my thoughts and prayers and hope that you'll be seen and having everything taken care of.

    Hugs to you!!!

    Crystal - if imitrex works for you, can you or your husband please ask the doctor if there are any samples from the drug companies that can be given to you?

    Here is the contact information for the company that makes Imitrex. Sometimes the company can be of great help in getting a few more to you.

    Lots of prayers being sent to everyone that needs them.

    PLEASE pray for my grandpa. He is not feeling well at all and needs lots of prayers right now. Thank you all so much.

    I usually do not ask for prayers because I'm not very religious. But the person I am asking for is.
    Bruce's mom slipped at church today and broke her hip. She is 71 years old, is a cancer survivor, has a pace-maker and is on blood thinners. (Wow, she sounds like she is in horrible health.) But she is actually a very physical/athletic person. She could out hike me anyday!!
    I am sure she will be fine, but now she will be laid up for the holidays. We have Xmas eve at her house.
    We are not sure if she needs surgery yet, she is still at the hospital. We are over an hour away so we are just waiting to hear how things are going.

    If you could spare a moment to think of her and hope that she will have a quick recovery, the family would appreciate it.

    And I hold everyone requiring it in my thoughts as well.

    ETA: Crystal, Candace has a good point. When I went to the doctor for headaches she gave me samples of Imitrex. Its worth a shot to try. I am sorry you are going through this.
    Our goal in life should be - to be as good a person as our dog thinks we are.

    Thank you for the siggy, Michelle!

    I'm not religious either but I'm spiritual as I suspect you are as well, so prayers are going up for Bruce's mom and a speedy healing and recovery.
    Blessings,
    Mary

    Well, she is going to have hip replacement surgery. Either today or tomorrow.

    The story continues:

The business owns a building which, if it would sell, would provide the funds to settle many of the debts. The real estate market stinks to say the least. So, everyone, could you pray that someone would want to buy the building. ...

    I have GOOD NEWS- a potential buyer came to look at the building yesterday and came back today - so we are hoping. Please pray that either this might be "the one" or the financial situation might ease up somehow. ...

    Well, there's an offer. It's not the offer we wanted, but it's an offer. The bad news is all the fees and taxes that will be owed. Grrrrrr! ...

    Update to the update. Because of zoning issues, the transaction needs to past first the Planning and Zoning Commission and then the full city council. It's in a residential neighborhood but the business was there before the zoning ordinance took effect. Please keep praying. ...

    The P&Z commissioner came in and took a look around. There's nothing that isn't fixable. The buyer is still interested. Thank you for your prayers about that. ...
    Planning and Zoning Commission meets tomorrow evening -- please pray it will go through.

    Also ... the agency job I've had since mid-April ended today. Please pray that I'll land the next position before too long.

    Thanks,

    Spent last night in the ER trying to get rid of a migraine. Imitrex didn't work, so they had to give me pain meds and anti-nausea meds. I came home and slept all day, literally. I woke up at 5:07 pm. These are disruptive to my life and my work. I can't wait to get into the endocrinologist to see if having the parathyroid gland tumor removed helps, or if they even think it's related.

    Learned tonight that the hyperparathyroidism can cause irreversible kidney damage, too.

    *sigh*

    My insurance will only cover 4 imitrex a month. I have that many migraines a week most of the time. I'm on a preventative, I have had MRI's and CT scans to make sure nothing else is going on, all we found is the calcium being high. I just have to wait until I can see the endocrinologist.

    I just don't know if I can.
    i had to put in an appeal to my insurance company because they'd only allow a certain amount of pills for something.
    you can do the same with your imitrex.
    it usually works.
    imitrex i hear is a once daily pill...you need it once daily to work.
    not 4 pills a month.
    that sounds crazy.i'd appeal that one.
    Sending Prayers your way

    Thank You Kim for this wonderful siggy

    Thank you Jennie, and others. We are still waiting to find out when she can have surgery. They are waiting for her Coumadin levels to drop, so her blood is thick enough for surgery. I just hope they can do the surgery SOON so she will be home for Christmas. She will have to spend 3 or 4 days at a rehabilitation center after surgery too. Fingers are crossed.

    Crystal, I hope you can find a solution to your headaches soon.

    Bruce's mom is FINALLY having surgery this morning. 10am PST. So in 1 hour and 40 minutes.
    I heard some scary things about hip replacement surgery. Things that I don't even want to repeat and I have NOT told Bruce. So please, if anyone reads this, keep his mother in your thoughts today.
    I also hope she will be home for Christmas Eve.

    Thank you!

    The mother of a friend of mine just had hip replacement surgery. She's 83 and doing great. She had been in a wheelchair and now she's walking w/out assistance and is going to her daughter's for Christmas Day dinner w/the family. Miracles happen. So keep the faythe.
    Blessings,
    Mary
