Hi Friends

It's been about a month since I've posted. Way to long! I've missed writing. I've had a tough month, Fibromyalgia-wise. Between a Fibromyalgia flare and working at the State Park, I haven't been able to keep up with my household chores. For those of you who don't know me or have not read my entire blog, Dwain and I live in a 37' Montana Fifth Wheel. I should not have trouble keeping up this small space, but I do. Dwain is no help in the housekeeping department. I did grocery shopping a week ago and there are still two bags sitting in the corner of the kitchen. I have only done what must be done. Can't give anymore.

The burning on my left thigh is worse. It has spread to the inside of my leg and up my hip to my butt. It burns, cramps and feels like something is stabbing me. It also hurts to have pants on. I am convinced it is a Fibromyalgia symptom. I went to the Chiropractor. She believes it might be Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD). Apparently my leg would have been injured sometime back. Now the nerves are reacting to the injury in a delayed reaction. Sure could be Fibro related as it involves the nerves. Apparently Chiropractic adjustments will not help. I made an appointment with my medical doctor for Monday.

This week will be a busy camp week. Three of the park hosts will be leaving the end of the week and new hosts arriving. When there is a turn over, it is extra busy for those hosts staying until the new hosts have gone through their orientation and can begin their duties.

Our Josh turned 12 this week. He has a new bike! He has been battling his own health issues, but is feeling much better.

We had Lucy spayed last week. Can't give her a bath for 10-14 days. Her fur doesn't look right...she needs a bath, but must wait 'til Sunday at the earliest. Her incision looks good. She has a Kong I fill with treats. She must work to free the treats from inside the Kong. Most dogs lick to release the treats. Lucy works the traditional way periodically. Most of the time she picks up the Kong, puts her head back then drops the Kong. It's like she is throwing it. Treats fall out often enough for her to continue this practice. She's smart as well as cute!!!

I hope everyone has been well.
