Good job, Marty! I still like your guitar man.

Who will be next to show his/hers??? Some koi fish, perhaps? C'mon, y'all!

Cheers!
Sue

There is no generic for Lunesta, so I imagine the co-pay is pretty high. I was paying $17 for 60 Ambien and written for 2/night. PC's plan is to dry me out with other meds and get back on it... as he knows how well it worked for me.

He has been trying anti-depressants that have an off-label use for insomnia. With some of them, the less you take the more sedating they are. Just haven't found the right one yet. We've tried Transdone, Mirtazapine, Serquel and a couple of others. Yeah, I'm all messed up. Have had insomnia since grade school. I hate not being able to sleep and dream. A couple of them have he added side effect of weight gain, which I need. Mostly from an increase in appetite. I lost 30 from the radiation/chemo.

Don't take life too seriously. You're not going to get out of it alive anyway.

Enjoy life, you only live it once, etc, etc for all the other sayings about life.

zeeLarry,
What can I say, the Devil made me do it?

Jeannie,
Which 2002 vue is it and what transmission does it have, VTi or Transaxle? VTi's cannot be towed with the front wheels on the ground. Check the owner's manual and read the section on Recreational Towing.

Here's what I can find on the 2002 Saturn:

........................Transmission-----Drive Configuration------Speed/Distance Approx.------Curb Weight (lb.)
........................Auto Manual...... Limits (mph/mi.)
L Series Sedan.... ✔....... ✔.......... Front-wheel drive .........65/None.......................... 2,948
LW Series Wagon. ✔...... ✔........... Front-wheel drive......... 65/None...........................3,070
SC Series Coupe.. ✔...... ✔........... Front-wheel drive......... 65/None.......................... 2,367
SL Series Sedan.. ✔....... ✔.......... Front-wheel drive......... 65/None.......................... 2,341
VUE............................ ✔.......... Front-wheel drive.......... 65/None..........................3,179

*On all Saturns, certain fuses must be removed before towing. See owners manual for details.

Notice that the VUE with Auto Transmission cannot be towed.

Glad you made it home safely and unfortunate that the alligator jumped up and bit ya'll. Just add it to the next GC food mix, the Arkies won't know the difference.

Well, it has been busy 'round here, especially for Earlene. She was trying to catch up with all the Dr. appointments so we could get on the road. Dental is going to be the big cost one for us, but it will be worth it for her. That is next Thursday.

Monday she goes under the knife for a repair to the Plantar Fasciitis. So Larry, now is your time to get even. It will be one week before she is able to walk on that foot so I'll be her slave. I am looking for a good pair of rubber crutches. That would be a hoot, NOT.

Night night!

Jne,

Becky is writing a book. Keep reading her blog and you'll hear more about it.

I spent most of the day with her and her family and had a delightful time. Tomorrow morning I'm going to go watch the kids at Ju Jitsu lessons and then we'll come pick Sena and Lily up and go to the Petroglyphs National monument just west of Albuquerque. The weather was wonderful until about noon when the winds returned.

I spoke to my physician, (the medical director of this place), about delayed pain medications and oh, what a turn around. This one nurse brings them without me asking. Usually it was 1/2 hour delay.

They removed me from the feeding machine a couple hours ago, so I'm not tied to this machine any more. The nurses will come in and tube me 12 oz of 80 proof every 3 or 4 hours. It is such a feeling of freedom not being tied to it 7/24. I can walk the isles and go to the bathroom without it. Yeah.

Tomorrow, they are supposd to put together a package of my remaining meds and write me scripts for 30 days worth. Not sure how that is going to work. They still haven't gotten a Dr to sign the script for lorazapam. How are they going to get one to sign anything else?. Anyhow, I am then supposed to get my scripts from my PC. Hope I can get him to go strong enough on the pain and sleep meds. He's playing around with different drugs to find what works of me. I wish he would give me enough to self medicate to the point of finding what does work and stick to it. I have a very hight tolerance and some of them only work for one or two nights. I loved Ambien CR as it let me fall asleep fast, sleep for 10 hours and wake up refreshed. Too bad that after 2 years my tolerance went up to where it wasn't working. Anybody use a reliable sleep med? OTC will not work for me. I keep telling my Dr that I don't care if I get hooked on a benzo. What's it going to do? Kill me or let me get a good night sleep? I have never been hooked on a med, just what if does for me. I.E. lets me sleep or take away the pain.
I know you said OTC doesn't work, but when I'm keyed up, 2 capsules of tryptophan (1000mg) and 5 mg of Melatonin works. Sometimes I add 2 capsules of Magnesium (500mg) too. Lol....I don't do well on conventional meds!

Tried L-tryptophan and melatonin. Nothing, I mean nothing. Not even drowsy. Nurse told that melatonin will turn off your natural serotonin generators and was not good for you. Sounds logical. They make these benzo drugs for a reason. Use them when your patient needs them. Stop trying alternatives while your patient tosses and turns. That is no quality of life. So what if I get hooked. I didn't plan to live forever.

Wow! You and Sena and Lily have fun and excitement every day. I'm thinkin' I'd love just following you around the rainbow. Course some folks call that stalking ...
