Popping in for a quick update ....

It's been a few days since I posted and I apologize but things have been so hectic here.  It seems just when you think you've hit your darkest hour a silver lining appears.  After two years of fighting with doctors and trying to figure out what was wrong with hubby he finally got upset enough to seek another opinion ... and guess what, we now have a diagnosis.  I had said all along that is what I thought it was but who am I, just an ordinary lay person so what would I know.  Well turns out I know more than some doctors ...... my husband has one of the worst cases of fibromyalgia that this doctor has ever seen.  Hubby told him that another doctor said no way and he got real mad.  So he has started him on a treatment plan and hopes that within 3 - 6 months he will be able to resume working back at his old occupation.  Now just have to fight with the insurance company to reinstate his benefits but that is another story for another time.

I've been working 12 hours days as we are really far behind at work and they finally oked the overtime.  It will help with the finances so that is a good thing but doesn't leave much time for anything else.  Food has actually be ok, I had a not bad weigh in at TOPS on Monday, only up .4, that I can handle.

I want to wish all my American blog friends a very happy Thanksgiving for tomorrow.  Remember to count your blessing no matter how small in number they may seem.  Hugs to you all.
