  1. Awesome post ! it is really helpful post . thanks for sharing.

  2. That is exactly how my spine problems started after my fall on ice .I have had the steroid shots and they helped for awhile .For some that is all you need and the shots are practically painless compared to the pain .
    I had an MRI and mine showed disc problems touching nerves and bad spinal stenosis .That is the reason I am having the surgery soon.The pain has worsened .
    I feel your pain I took ibuprofen and it helps somewhat also do EMU creme that I rub on from Walmart and heating pad .
    I hope you can rest your shoulder that will help.
    Hugs to you ,just a note ,”STRESS MAKES IT WORSE ” !
    Take care .
    Glad lil Charlie is improving !

    Charlie’s “hunting” is probably the highlight of the month for him! I can just see him skittering about, intent on finding whatever it is he’s after. I sure hope he is well with no more incidents of blood after he finishes the antibiotic this time. Seems like three courses should eliminate whatever infection he’s had. If it doesn’t I wonder if he needs a different antibiotic.

    I’m sorry about your shoulder being so painful. I had pain in my shoulder right after my twin grandsons were born. I was caring for them nearly every day and lifting them, sometimes both at the same time, aggravated it. I was given one shot of cortisone by the doctor and that cleared it right up. I had never had a problem with it before that and haven’t since. But it sounds like your shoulder pain has been more recurring. I remember it feeling pretty debilitating.

    Still hot and sunny here on Labor Day. I’m not laboring much even though there’s lots to do! I did get some hostas planted last night around my crabapple tree in front. They had been sitting in their pots since I’d bought them about a week ago. We had rain for a couple of days so pulling weeds is a joy! They come right up! Guess I should labor some at that today in the evening after the heat cools a bit.
    This whole week is supposed to be hot, hot, hot. Yuuck!

    Hope you’ve had a peaceful weekend and that your second eye surgery will be swift and easy. Take care, Brenda! Pats for Charlie.

    1. This has been going on with my shoulder/neck since January.

  4. Brenda, is it your left shoulder? I have a lot of trouble with my left shoulder when I spend too much time typing on the computer or using my mouse in my right hand to play card games on the computer. The only thing that helps is staying off the computer and giving it a rest for a few days. I know that is difficult for you since you depend on your blog for income. Also it is important to have the right height for your keyboard to avoid this strain. I use a desk and a laptop so I know the keyboard is too high for me but I can’t do anything about that so I just have to give my shoulder a rest and stay off the computer for a while which is hard for me to do. The pain can be unbelievable, and it actually took me a while to find out that it was the fault of my time on the keyboard and mouse that was causing the pain. Maybe try refraining for a while and taking aleve for the pain and see if it resolves itself?

    1. It’s my right shoulder, down my arm into my hand and wrist. X-rays showed severe stenosis in my neck.

      1. I am really sorry to hear that.

      2. I have stenosis in my neck also along with arthritis, bulging disc, degenerative disc. Therefore I keep neck pain all the time and headaches as well.

        What I really wanted to say is would you consider a steroid shot if the x-rays don’t show anything major wrong with you. I strained my rotator cuff many years ago and had just one shot and it did the trick. Haven’t had anymore problem with it and I’m quite a bit older than you. Just a thought!!

      My right shoulder has hurt me for years.I got a massage and asked her to work mainly on my shoulder.She did,she says often when women shoulder,s hurt it,s coming from under the breast area.She worked on that area also.Oh and carry the lightest purse you can get by with.A over the shoulder one is best,safer also.And Aleve as needed.good luck!

  5. I can just picture Charlie snooping around the patio and under the plants. How cute!
    Good luck with your eye surgery; I know you be glad when that is over and the second eye is healed; hang in there.
    You may already know this, but I was reading an article online about moss roses and learned they are related to purslane.
    Have a good day Brenda and Charlie!

    1. I’ve read somewhere that they are related.
