The hardest part is behind you now my dear friend. Getting that ball rolling took tremendous courage. I'm proud of you. (Hugs)Indigo

First steps are always the hardest.  So glad you have taken them Mort.  Praying for the pain to ease up and the sun to keep shining.
Hugs, Joyce

Aint it funny Mort that once we take that first step it is as if a load has been taken of our back...just needs that first step.  
Wonder if babies feel the same when the suddenly stand up and walk..it must be so hard for them to see everyone walk about and think they will never be able to do that !! m That daft thought just came to me just now !!!
Hope you have a good day today and that Mum is feeling better as well.  Make the most of the sunshine it is going to be glorious they say and hot !! next comes the thunderstorms !!  Love  Sybil xx

So glad you are forging ahead with it Mort. Things will gradually start to get easier from now on especially when you get the help you deserve.  Well done.  Oh, I did a posting yesterday with new pics of the boys but many are still not getting alerts.  I have complained yet again.

Hey my fav other man. Well done for sorting out all the yukky stuff. Get yourself out In that lovely sunshine for a bit and park a chair to catch some rays. Failing that, get out the fishing rod and try and hook the neighbours washing or better still, the neighbours! lol. ;-) Love Pam xx

Hello Mort, it was a hard step to take ringing the MS Nurse, its done now and she is seeing you tomorrow - fab!   Jus having her on your side will lift a weight from your shoulders. Chin up, hope the ankle is less painful.

It takes a lot to finally take that step Mort and I kinow it was not easy.  You have so many people backing you and I  am so proud of you, and it is hard to accept I know.  It may make having MS a little easier.  Believe me you need everything you can get.  Lucy

Mort it's good to hear that you feel a bit better and have some sunshine. I'm sure it was hard for you to make the first step but now hopefully you will get the help you need.
Hugs

yay! so happy for you. see i told you you werent the only one who has to come to terms on there own time. its only natural. i hope she gets you sorted out  . she sounds wonderful and caring. its down right hot  here  already.  i rush back inside as fast AS  possible. but i like the heat better than the cold. too many aches  and pains in the colder weather. lol
would be nice if your nurse can fix you up with some thype of swimming therapy. my mother says it does wonders for her. i cant affordt it. her insurance pays for hers. they dont actually swim. they do excersise in warm water.  i can just imagine how lovely it must be because sometimes when i have pain i stand in the shower under the hot water and let it beat the pain away for a few minutes of relief. wishing i could stay under there forever  lol.  take care hun, june

thank you for the helpfull advice concerning my plants. you are quite clever  . i have asked Debbie to read the comment as she is having trouble with her  tomato plants as well. truthfully i love my plant and wont mind if it does not bear a single tomato. it has already given me such joy just watching it flourish. i would hate for it to be bothered by any diseases. i will take your advice and give it my best effort!  you and mum have a nice weekend. dont know if you celebrate our fourth of july. it will be quite lively with all the festivities planned. i doubt i will brave the blistering sun for most of the day. i will try to catch the fireworks display . the children want to do outdoor grilling. i prefer to visit a nice restaurant and get my barbecue ribs already prepared lol  should not be eating such as that anyway but will be a test to my willpower to leave it alone when it is so yummy!   hugs and stuff!  june
