I am so anxious for spring I can't stand it!! I love all the seed catalogs etc but I want the REAL THING!! These are my pic's from last summer, for now I have to use them to remind me that winter does NOT last forever!! Even in Montana.

Laurence has been having problems with his foot again..... a couple of years ago we went to a neurologist that really helped him, but it's back.....
The pain starts in his back and works it's way down. For a few days he was able to use his cane, then he graduated to his crutches. Now he has basically graduated to his bed, chair etc. He also crawls frequently....:(
He has an appointment to see the neurologist again, but March 2 is the first time they could get him in......
It is so, so swollen. He can't even get his crocs on. When I took him to the clinic he just had a sock on, used his crutches and I had to drive the car up to the base of the steps.
When I took him into the clinic last night, they put him on percoset, prednazone and indomet. We can't convince the doc at the clinic that it's not gout. It does act like gout, but the tests have all shown that it isn't. So now with the percoset, he gets some relief but is still in a lot of pain.
So, my dear friends and loved ones, please remember my dear sweetheart in your prayers. Thanks!

Valentine's Day 2010

I truly was not expecting anything from Laurence this year. I know he loves me dearly and I also know we are broke. But he surprised me with these on Valentine's. What a sweetie! I can't believe he was able to pull the surprise off. He has been so sick this week, he hasn't left the house except when he absolutely had to. He even missed 3 1/2 days of work. While I was gone to the gym on Saturday he went to the floral shop and then he hid them in his office. Isn't he sweet!!
