  1. We went to Alaska with Royal Caribbean in May 2010 with our daughter who was 17 at the time. It was truly the best vacation we have ever had. We left from Vancouver and flew back from Fairbanks but I know they have cruises leaving from Seattle, as well. In port there are a variety of things to do. If you go to cruise critic you can read about various ports in Alaska and also about the different cruise lines. They have a forum where I got most of my information about planning excursions and so forth. If you can swing it at all, I would recommend the cruise and tour after or just staying a few days on your own and sightseeing. We got to see Talketna and Denali that way.
  2. We are going September 2016 on Royal Caribbean and are super excited! I am just beginning to do research about what to do on each island. We leave from Vancouver, are at sea for 5 days, then tour the islands and end up in Honolulu. I have a few books that should help with planning.
  3. You may want to check with a functional medicine or holistic doctor. They may be able to suggest natural products to use in place and help with tapering off the present medications.
  4. Was this your yearly check up or were you seeing him for a problem? I know that with my insurance now the regular checkup only involves talking, not an exam. If the doctor examines me for any issues, or the discussion goes beyond a well visit then my insurance will not pay it. I need to go in for a well visit, schedule blood work, etc that the doctor suggests and then make a different appointment to discuss any issues or problems I'm having.
  5. Glad he went in and you found out about the BP! For the shoulder, if he gets a diagnosis and you are able to find a really good massage therapist who does deep tissue massage you may want to look at that route. I had a pinch nerve with pain radiating down my left arm, numbness, couldn't type at work. The physical therapist that I was referred to seemed like she didn't know what was going on. I didn't feel very confident, so I saw my dd's friend who is a massage therapist. She said "I am sure we can fix this in around 5 weeks." I went once a week for 5 weeks and the difference is amazing! I now do arm exercises and stretches to strengthen it but she basically fixed the pain and numbness.
  6. I went to Starbucks and ordered a Frappuccino. I told them my name was Patti but it came back printed on my cup as "Phatty." I guess they were trying to tell me something? :lol:
  7. I was on a similar medication for about 1 1/2 years. When I started to taper off I also began taking DGL, Natural Esophaguard by Life Extension, and a good probiotic. I think I went off gradually in about 1 to 2 months.
  8. Happy Thanksgiving!
