small update. Christmas was great, and my parents were blown away by my gifts, and I was blown away by theirs. My mom is so incredibly weak, I was I could be there for her all day. I got this email today.

Quote:
Today I called Dr. Asfora office to get my meds refilled and also set up an appt to see him.
It was the usual phone call where I leave a voice message to his assistant named Jean and she calls me back. I was napping when she called back. She asked me what my dosage had been on the steroids again and I answered but I must have said wrong as she wanted me to go look at my med bottle. I told her I had been sleeping so might be a bit foggy. She told me to go get the med bottle and she would wait. She said she understood it was hard for me to get up. So I put the phone down, rolled over in bed and went to far. I went down on my knees on the floor. I knew I was in trouble then as I can't get up by myself in that position. So I reach for the phone and it is dead as it low battery. The charger cord was in the computer room. It took me forever to crawl to the computer room. I got plugged in and she called back to see if I was ok. I was ok but on the floor. I said I need to discuss what to do next as I am at my the end of my rope. She said she knows this is very hard but really nothing I can do but the steroids for another month. She said Dr. Asfora doesn't think surgery is the answer. She encouraged me to hang in there. I have an appt for 22nd.
I then laid on the floor for 1 1/2 hours in the computer room waiting for Lee to come home to get me up. I cried in frustration for a bit but was ok after that as I had blanket close up that I grabbed and took a nap on the floor.

Sorry to hear all this Andrew. I have been a man on the run lately, but I'm putting a few words in to the man upstairs to see if he'll here me just this one time.

Best of luck to the whole family in 08.

Oh Andrew.... I'm so sad over this....so does Lee have a cell phone? She needs to be able to call him him or someone when if she'* unable to get up... or even the receptionist at the Dr. office could have sent someone over to help her. Can't she call a neighbor or someone close by? My goodness....what a terrible thing to be unable to get up and have to wait for who knows how long. I think I would want one of those medic alert necklaces if I were her.

Prayer for a better year for her, and you, and your whole family.

yes, she has all those options. She doesn't call my dad because she doesn't want to pull him from what little work he already gets. I am not sure why she didn't call anyone else, probably embarrassment?

I talked to my mom this morning. She said she always has her cell phone with her in case something happens, but this time the battery was dead. :(
