|A little about me:||When I first joined this group I was a prisoner to my anxiety and panic attacks. I now have control of both. NO MEDICATION at all. It is possible for you to overcome this on your own. Just no matter what never ever ever give up. Ever. Keep trying, you CAN do it too. I love each of you that have gone through the same thing and have felt alone with this condition. We share a common bond through this alone.

|Dear my RSD/CRPS, Chronic pain friends and others.
It was a hard 2012. In fact the last few years have been hard. My husband had Quad bypass open heart surgery December 21st 2012, I spent Christmas in the hospital with him. I brought him home 8 days later. They took an artery from his left arm (12 inch incision) and a vein from his right leg (Approx 6-8 in incision) his heart has another 12 inch scar and 4 smaller horizontal beneath it approx 1.5-2 inches each where the large tubes were draining blood from the surgical site and his lungs. Tomorrow will be a week since we've been home. I spent the first 2 nights in the van at the hospital, during a storm, very cold, while he was in the first ICU. Another day in the van and after that I was able to stay with him in the second ICU and then in Cardiac recovery unit. I've been doing all I can to care for him, lift him, bathe him, feed him etc. It's been really hard but he's done it all for me. In August we had renewed our 25th wedding vows in a church ceremony. As you can imagine fear got the better of me on a few occasions, I thank God every day for the Christmas gift of life he gave me (and him) for bringing him through it. The day of his surgery was the day the world was suppose to end. As he was being wheeled into surgery our sky lit up bright orange and a rainbow appeared. Our daughter was walking to work and captured it happening on her cell phone. It was like God saying... it will be okay and this is my sign to you. Our niece also captured a photo, a double rainbow, but without the sky turning orange. I miss you all. I've had to take leave from the work I do for the time being. Our son Kurtis got his drivers permit only days before we found out my husband needed the surgery after an angiogram. He's been our driver. My husband gets his staples out in 2 weeks. We both have doc appointments tomorrow. I see a Pulmonary Specialist at the end of this month. Previously scheduled for the same day as my husbands surgery which I had to post pone. My sleep study came back abnormal. Much love and care to all of you. ~Twinkle
