Hi, Astroe. How is the hallowed ground of Chas? My biggest expense is also health related. I found out I had plantar fasciitis with a bone spur in my right heel. (NOT comfortable) With that were many expenses. Granted the doctor's visit was free; however, the orthotics were not., i.e., two pairs of orthotic shoes, a special contraption to use during sleep, as well as additional show inserts, all totaling about $1K. But, the money was well spent, as I no longer suffer the extreme pain and can walk normally. As you know, all of this transpired after our last meeting in May. Fortunately, I heal very fast, after listening to the doctor very carefully.

Now, the neuralgia (byproduct of Shingles) is again rearing its ugly head, but exercise helps that too, except for my knee at night. But, that too shall pass.

As far as DH is concerned, always look at each day as a gift. That way, when you wake up with him beside you, you can have that wonderful smile on your face. As far as everyone else on this Board is concerned, Astroe's DH is a very, very, very bright man and loving to his wonderful wife.
