I'm enjoying surfing, not typing much...taking it very easy. Just copying and pasting so here's my friends/family update for this morning:

I feel SOOOOOOOOOOOO much better this morning!!! Finally able to sleep more than an hour without waking up due to some kind of pain or itching! I think I got about 6 hours of sleep. AND, I can now get in and out of bed on my own! (It sure is hard to move when both your legs AND arms hurt! Thankfully I have strong abs, LOL) Amazing how much time, Demerol, and decent sleep helps. My progress is exponentially improving hour by hour! Definitely feel like I am past the worst of it!

Thanks for posting, Simple Girl! I was thinking of you (as I'm sure are many others too shy to post). Rest, relax, lay back, read a good book, take it easy, let that body heal up. You have lots of people including myself sending you positive thoughts and good wishes.

Was thinking of you and wondering how it went, but I knew you'd be back on the road to recovery immediately. So glad!

SG, you had to get home in a hurry before DH forgot to water the plants!
Take care of yourself and keep resting. You need to milk this hand-and-foot-waiting to the furthest degree possible!
More hippie love to you!
