Yey Mort!!! I love that double petunia, it's amazing, I've never seen one. I'm sorry you're having those pains, I hope the MRI results are okay. Take care, I love to see your photos!

Hi Mort: What lovely lovely pictures. It is so nice to be surrounded by such beauty!

Regarding jerking legs, please please ask your doctor for Requip 0.50 mg and take it two hours before bedtime. I swear by it and although it is a prescription drug, I always make sure I take it 2hr before bed or I will be practically jumping out of the bed.

With this awful disease of MS, at least there are some drugs out there that can help deal with all the other stuff that comes with it.

So, please ask your doc for a prescription of Requip, no substitutions.

I hope you start feeling better soon. Anne

Mort, you did listen to my begging you to post when you feel like it. Good that you did not delete. This way you can post if you feel well enough and I get to see your pictures!! I KNOW HOW DIFFICULT YOU HAVE THIS DREADED DISEASE, i ALSO KNOW THERE IS NOTHING YOU CAN DO FOR YOUR LEGS. Alan had the same for nearly 5 years, before he even went on hospice. Mort like with Alan I would do anything if I could take some of the awful things away I know you have, I love you as a son as you know and I know it takes an effort to just do the simplest thing..You are also like a son in as much as you don't listen to me when I Might try requip but it fails me at time and I am just old. WELCOME BACK!!!
