Back Home

John Dear and I are back home from our Caribbean cruise vacation with my parents and my sister. A lovely time -- only 24 hours of really bad sea-sickness and 1 major panic attack (induced from very rough seas and me not taking my meds - will I ever learn?). I had a massage and also had my first acupuncture treatment! Fabulous and will definitely do it again.

JD was off his meds all week, at the instruction of his doctor, so that they could determine a new baseline for him. Except for one instance of miscommunication, when he blew up, but quickly calmed down, he was wonderful. More like himself than I've ever seen him. I always suspected that he was wrongly medicated and I'm pretty sure this week proved it.

Am now catching up on everyone's news - over 600 posts for me on Google Reader. Yikes! Hoping that everyone out there continues to have happy holidays and a very happy new year.

I'm glad you guys had a fun time, and that JD is doing so well without the meds. Hopefully they can get it all figured out perfectly.

Happy Hanukkah and a Happy New Year!

Welcome home! Hope you good some good sun time, coupled with a fruity frozen drink or too. And I'm glad everything worked with John Dear's meds. Hopefully they can work out a better dose

It sounds like you had a wonderful time on your vacation! I'll be around more now that my head is making its way out of the holiday fuzz.

I love the menorah widget! I found a kinara widget for Kwanzaa through that link!

Welcome home! Glad it was a good time overall and that you enjoyed the acupuncture. And also that you're getting closer to some answers for JD and his meds. Big holiday hugs to you!
