Hi Essi! Thinking about you and hoping all is well. Hows the foot? Just a quick note to let u know I have u on my mind...kind of like a willie nelson song ;)
Thanks Ess! Yes am really enjoying Hong Kong! Our friend is showing us a fantastic time. Afternoon tea at the Peninsula today, dim sum tomorrow. Crash diet will be necessary upon return to Canada. :-). Hope all is well with you.
I see her too! Kathy - yup love her also- I am newly dx'd - December 2011 so I see them every 3 months right now - switch off between them both. Small world - I work in Hunt Valley and live in Harford County!
Just a quick note to say hi! I saw that you go to Hopkins for your MRI's my neuro is there as well - where in Maryland do you live? I see Dr newsome and love him!
Have a good day!

You're in my thoughts all the time, but especially today. Miss you and sending my best to you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Chipper dipper is my middle name. Love your spunk Essie. Hope I live and love as much as you at your age if I am lucky enough to live as long as you. My very best and some more.
I am thinking of you and wishing you all the very best.

I missed your post, but went back and looked....Thank you so much for remembering my time, and for keeping an eye on me....
Love ya, Glen
Thank you for the note Ess that was so sweet of you. You are up early this morning, me too!! The GI doc just came by and said I can start on clear liquids now and that is a good sign that I am getting much closer to a discharge date. Hooorraay for small steps. I can't wait to eat my breakfast which will be chicken broth, rasphberry Italian ice and cranberry juice. Well, not exciting, but it will do. Thanks again for thinking of me and I hope you are doing well too. :)
Thank you for a comment... !
I don't want to say/write anything that may make someone feel bad (ganged up on) but thanks for mentioning that the negative comments toward those who manage to stay positive are getting old. I'm actually not that positive myself, but I'm glad to see whenever others are.
It was just a little pink tutu, but on her it was a BIG tutu....hahaha One of the nurses brought it all to us because we are strapped right now with having to do the daily trips to the hospital and trying to finish up buying what Ava will need when she gets home. She is at 6 lbs now!!!! She is truly a miracle and gift from God and we love her with all our hearts!! She is really going to be one spoiled little girl!!! Love you!!!!
Thankds for the note Ess. I am a bundle of confidence and energy, but we know that "steroid" confidence is false. Good thing because I actually feel like putting on my tennies and going out for a run for the first time in 7 years. Won't do it though! I'm being realistic. :) Hope you are enjoying this cool Fall day.
Just a quick note to say hi!
I've surgery on both of my achilles, 2006 left achilles, bone spur removed and a reduction to my tendon, took more than a year to heal, April 2011 my right Achilles, bone spur removed and reduction to my tendon & minor tear repaired - and a anchor drilled into the bone, for the second surgery I used a foot surgeon, It will take longer to heal they wont release me to use ladder and use stairs only as needed.
Do you know what they want to do your Achilles?
Have you considered PRP injections, a could years after my left ankle started hurting again the Dr did PRP twice and it seemed to work, here's a link
Take care John
Hi Ess, just wanted to say hi and hope all is well as I noticed you haven't posted for a while. Hopefully that means you are off having fun somewhere. :) Take care. ~deebs~
You deserve a big bear hug!
Just wanted you to know I am thinking about you and wishing you a beautiful week.
Ess you lovely woman you! Just a quicky (not sex) note to let you know I'm thinking of you!
Hugs and kisses
You are an inspiration. I love reading your posts. Wish I had the answer to the hip flexor problem but am thinking of you.
Thanks for kind message. I think that 3 months done the line I am finally feeling better and just out of relapse. Summer hols with all kids home very busy and tomorrow I am off to Ireland to see family. I expect I will post more in September but keep an eye on things and dip in now and then. love and hugs.

Thank you for wishes! I'm at my wit's end with this pain garbage. Today I was trying to organize some paperwork so I could qualify for free PT since insurance won't pay for it anymore this year. Sat here for hours and still couldn't get it done yet.
Then I re-read what I posted to Michelle and I thought I removed all the typos...not. My brain is going fast and it is not doing me any good in the mood department.
thanks Ess, yes I'll be sure to get my rest. Fortunately it seeems people have lower expectations of me than what I can actually tolerate, so there's no pressure to overdo it. Sometime I'd like to go back and rent a place on the beach, and let everyone come to us. We'll have about 20 hours of driving on this trip, not all at once opf course, though there will be a couple of days of 5 hour drives. You must get there someday, it's beautiful. You've spent time in Maine so that would give you a good idea of what it's like. My favourite spots are the south shore of NS (I used to live and work there), and Cape Breton (husband was raised there). Beautiful scenery, nice down to earth people, great food and even some decent local wine.
Good morning essdipity! It's Sunday and its cloudy and raining! Yay!
How are you doing? I thought I'd drop a note to say hi and realized you have given me such wonderful responses to my posts and wanted to thank you again for all your support and thoughts!
Hope you are having a wonderful day!
Hi Ess, I took your advice re: boredom relief and started flipping though some cookbooks, and decided to give the Bareroot Contessa's Boeuf Bourguignon a try. Smells good in here! Tomorrow, I tackle Coconut Madeleines. Thx for the inspiration! Hope you're enjoying the weekend and you're staying cool. No cooking in that heat I bet!
Just a quick note to say to hi. Ess I enjoy reading your thoughtful, wise posts and admire the beautiful puppy dogs in your photos. Our two 14 year old Jack Russell Terriers have been with us since they were 6 weeks old and are loved dearly by all in our family. I'm sure your two keep you young.
Just a quick note to say hi! Thanks Ess, my Dr. told me I need to forget about my health problems and get on with my life. I had to go out to get a script filled first thing and I had trouble breathing at the drug store. Now I am struggling to breathe and and can't talk so it is watching the Tour de France and reading. Monday I am covering a Debt Crisis Round table moderated by Charlie Rose with some important folks including Senator Kay Hagan who is on the Budget Commitee. There is also a Reception. My assignment is to ask about cuts to Medicaid. I think the heat is a little better Monday. I know it will wipe me out. At least there is a Hospital next door. As a dog walker I used to walk a lady who broke her leg, dog three times a day for a minimal fee. for many months.
I love it when your sassy, Essy! Hoping that means your are still moving toward feeling a bit better. (((hugs))) - happy weekend!
Your the best :) And, I miss you :( xoxox - shell
Thanks Ess..it was lovely to hear from you. xxxx
Just a quick note to say hi!
Ravens? I just hope the season starts this year without delay..
I just love watching a good game no matter who's playing- I'm a NFC fan more...
thanks for your concerns ..
