Hi Maria,
i guess i missed the why your husband is not speaking to you.

I do need to email Dale , but not sure if it will be today. I got up at 4:30 probably thanks to my stress dose of steroids i get with the ESI's for my adrenal insufficiency. I think that is why i was wrapping presents and cleaning house until midnight , then up at 4. I even took pain meds which always knock me out in the morning and I am still awake at 8.
I have so much to do today as i just stayed home yesterday. But if i can stay awake i'll be all set. To the airport tomorrow. Everyone has some type of suitcase of carry on bag except me. i thought about giving everyone some of my stuff as i am not carrying anything anyway.
Just my healthy backpack which i got last week and love. In between my shoulder blades still hurts as the injections were lumbar. Not sure if that is coming from my neck. Still in a neck brace, although surgery was in January last year, i started wearing a neck brace in December for pain, hoping it would help. It at least helped me with lifting my head off my chest a bit.

I didn't realize you needed to get your toe fixed before the end of the year. Good luck with that. My ortho foot surgeon is Dr.Thomas Harris. He is here in Pasadena a few days and practices out your way or maybe too far down for you the rest of the week. Just thought i would offer that in case he is close enough, he is a sweet guy.
Lots of people try to fit in the last surgery in December. I say last as i have averaged 3 per year. I already hit this year's quota! So try to find a doc soon.
I am now hungry !
talk when i get back next week
