For not writing sooner to all of you.  In the early part of November, I pinched my sciatic nerve.  The pain since then has been indescribable.  I have been to the primary care doctor, an ortho specialist and am now waiting for my MRI and appointment with a spine specialist (as it is apparently connected to the spine).  I am not on any meds right now and can only lie on my stomach or back or stand for short periods of time.  It is hard to type standing up!

My appointments are scheduled for Thanksgiving week and I have been without anything to take the edge off for that time.  I will be back as soon as I can and in the interim, Happy Thanksgiving, as I will surely not be back before then.
