Very poetic Foamy dear, I hope your pain will soon subside and you can make that trip into the deep south...something nice to look forward to. :)

Lovely photograph too. xoxo ♡

foam said...

yes, i have to put my mother in the ground sometime. per her wishes she was cremated. i will bury her
with my dad and brother. but it will be good to see family. funerals seem to becoming the new family reunions anyway.

Lovely photo

Jean said...

So sorry you're still hurting.

Perhaps the trip can also be a southern blogger rendezvous.

foam said...

thanks, rolf
:)

jean,
that would be really tempting, but since i'm traveling to ms with the family, chances of being able to attend a gathering of fellow bloggers would be slim.

/t.
yes, thanks. this back issue stuff is certainly a pain in nether regions. well, it is .. i can't sit on it.

Middle Ditch said...

Aw, sorry Foam. Hope you get better soon. And yes, funerals are becoming family reunions here too.

Vertical thoughts from afar.

Carol said...

Hmmmm... the correlation. The "south" part of your body. Traveling to the "south". Hmmmm... the correlation.

Sending you warm, healing thoughts.

Ricardo said...

Here's hoping the pain does subside soon!

SJ said...

Thinking of YOU <3

ANNA-LYS said...

How is it with "the south" of You today?

X. Dell said...

Wow. This is really serious. Maybe, when you're up to it, you can give us a status report on your diagnosis an condition. If you don't want to post that here, I'd like to know how you are, still (the gritty details). Maybe an e-mail?

Just promise me: NO canoeing in Georgia, even if Burt Reynolds agrees to go along.

Pamela said...

lets make this trip as a group.
I really want to go do the deep south.
But not for a funeral. for a FUN... Strange that funeral begins with fun. just noticed that.

my youngest daughter said that we live from funeral to funeral (one of the by products of a very large family)

chickory said...

you are coming to Chickory! i knew it! or .... is it to your family bosom is mississippi? now i see i am right with your first reply. my husband put his dads ashes out in the san francisco bay. i was shocked that some green police didnt stop him

this back thing has gone on too long. im worried.

foam said...

chickory,
it's to the family bosom in ms. but i do want to come to chickory too. i hope your husband was downwind .. :).

pamela,
sure let's all go for fun. perhaps instead of it being funeral perhaps it should be finieral.. get it, huh?

pug,
no worries,
i'm the one that hangs out on the front porch with cousin bubba chewin 'n' spittin 'n' waitin' for folks in canoes to come floating by. (note to self: i really ought to watch that movie).

x.dell,
email .. check ..

anna-lys,
i do think my southern regions are
ever so slowly improving.

sj,
yeah, the snark has been a bit flat lately. but then, you've not been around much either .. :(
who am i gonna snark on?

ricardo,
compared to a month ago, it really really is much better. a month ago i needed help getting out of bed.

carol,
how observant you are. i had not even thought of that. thanks for the healing vibes and thoughts.

cosmo,
rub it in, why don't you .. ;)

middle ditch,
thanks. and, yes, they are.

ANNA-LYS said...

improving is better than bad
and absolutely in the right direction
hope You can take same steps by now

Ruela said...

Beautiful stuff!

Percy Bisque Silley said...

Sorry to learn of your situation.

foam said...

percy,
thanks, and eventually this will be a memory. many people are so worse off.

ruela,
you like it cause it's dark .. :)

anna-lys,
yes, i'm all for improving .. :)

Sir Thomas AKA (Winters Reaper) said...

good luck with the trip...


wish I could make it back down south...

Rolf said...

I can see, you are waving back
Thanks

Yes, it is summer houses

foam said...

rolf,
i thought so.

winters reaper,
you seem to get out and about quite a bit. i'm sure you will make it down there sooner or later.

dianne said...

Foamy dear, I really hope that you are feeling a whole lot better, any news on the MRI?
You can e-mail me if you want.
Wishing you happy, healing thoughts. xoxo ♡

foam said...

yes! you know it had been denied twice by the insurance co. my doctor wrote an appeal and based on that it was approved. i have my mri tomorrow at 6:30 am. no happy calming drugs to counteract my sense of claustrophobia though which is real and not pretend. being pregnant even made me feel claustrophobic. open mri's are unfortunately too far away. thanks for the healing thoughts .. ♡♡♡♡♡♡

dianne said...

Good luck Foamy dear, thinking of you. xoxo ♡♡♡♡♡♡♡

foam said...

thanks, dianne .. :)

Percy Bisque Silley said...

Exceedingly feminine!

foam said...

yes, i think so .. :)
thanks.

laughingwolf said...

hope all your pains skedaddle, quickslike, foamy...

Aunty Belle said...

Gracious Foamy!!

I ain't happy none a'tall 'bout yore hurtin' back. What'd the MRI show? Let us know.

It ain't no joke to have back woes. Aunty once stood up to eat fer three months or more--I feel fer ya'!

Mississippi huh? Youse a good girl to yore Mama. My Mama was born an' raised in Mississippi. An Aunty too until 4th grade. Give the land a kiss fer me.

Prayin' fer healin'.

foam said...

thanks, laughingwofl!

aunty,
i had an mri friday. I survived it quite well considering how claustrophic i am. they want me to have another mri on tuesday morning with contrast. they have found something which they want to find a bit better.
as chickory said on fb .. oi vey ..
i'm not worried about an injection or an iv. i'm a bit worried about the dye that goes in my body.
oh, and i've been referred to a neurosurgeon who i will see in a few days.
