%$*)&(()#&$&*)%$&* This news sucks, and Im sorry that Doffie is going thru this and Im cursing big time.

Just spoke with Doff and she has alot of tests scheduled for this week and should know more early next week. Understandably, she is very disheartened and feeling discouraged. Jules also is undergoing medical tests, so this is a real rough time for them.

On a positive note tho-- her back pain seems a tad better and theyve figured out a better schedule for her pain patches.

Doff, sending huge hugs your way

I will definitely keep Doffie in my thoughts and prayers as she tries to find answers. She is such a special lady who deserves better than she's gotten lately.

Oh, &*#*!! Doffie: am have been wondering how you've been. Damn. Look for some email and I'll give you a call later today. Hope they have a great idea for what to do next.

This is such a friggin nasty disease. It leaves some of us to live our lives relatively unscathed and hits other hard over and over again.

Take care.

I sure hope our beloved Doffie gets to the bottom of what's causing her miserable swelling!!! I'm sure its really tough not to get to feeling so down.

Hang in there Doffie....we love you and we're all here pulling for you!!!!

Well, crap! I could say worse than that but Dang, it wouldn't be very lady like. And I am TRYING to be a lady these days.

Doffie...I hope you check in here and get these messages. I am keeping you in my prayers for extra prayers for a while. You've been through so much hun! Wish I could help you with some of it. I wish I were there to give you a huge hug. Here's a cyber one for you anyway! {{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{HUGS}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}

Adding my prayers, hopes and smiles with the millions already on the way. Bless your sweet, sweet heart Doffie - I'm hoping you get this resolved quickly and are back on the board soon!

#$$%#$%$#%#%!!!!! Since my son can't read yet, I can swear all I want this way. Doffie, this news has hit me like a ton of bricks. It just sucks so bad that this is happening to you. The PACE was supposed to be it!!! I can only imagine how dissapointed and po'd you are right now, and I'm also sorry to hear that Jules is going through testing as well.
Please know that I'm sending you positive thoughts and thinking of you often.


New member
Doffie, I'm sending you hugs and prayers that something will work really soon. Glad the back pain is under better control.

@#$%^&**()@#$%^& ME TOO

Doffie I hope you get some action soon and get this thing kicked in the buttt. Like many of the spouses I will relate to Allan's problems when I hear others! He has been down big time a lot of times and just recently as well and just pulls out of it (with some aggressive noise and action it especially works well). Get as much help as you can and don't let up! Allan has also had his feet swelling big time and his gut as well. Don't despair too much and if you do take remeron (anti depressant--as it increases appetite and gives you get up and go). Hope to hear from you soon.


New member
I am absolutely shocked by what Sara has just posted. I really thought you were not on the board because of your back pain, but this is just ridiculous. Please know that you are in my thoughts all the time.
Please do not lose hope!


New member
Damn, damn, DAMN. Oh, Doffie, we love you so much. If there was only a way we could be there with you, could DO something to help, to make it go away.

Doffie, you and Jules are in our hearts and thoughts. We won't breathe until we hear how both of you are doing.

With love and hope,



New member
