Answer:  HOME STRETCH

(Aah!  A slightly more challenging and nontraditional pun.  I liked it very much.  Wouldn’t it be so much easier if homes were built with the kind of physical flexibility, whereby you could just stretch it to add space?!  They have that with the more expensive RVs and mobile homes.  I guess it would have to be more of a temporary thing.  No foundation, and maybe only good in fair weather.  But, the idea is intriguing.

No new clue words today.  Three of the jumbles appear to be new, with only “sampih” having definitely been used before.  The answer letter layout made for a swell eleven letter jumble.  I wouldn’t be surprised if some of you struggled to get the final answer.  Like I said, this one was a little different.

Great cartoon of the home renovation/extension.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    UR….,

    This is not to “baby cry” but prolonged severe
    pain: Is that capable of making one’s ability to think and reason decrease? I have had sever Sciatic Nerve pain for 3 1/2 yrs. My Doctor of Surgery wants me to get another injection in the nerve before he decides if another operation is in order^^*

    From six months ago I have too put 3Xs the effort to do my Jumbles & Crosswords.

    My MD’s and the Internet are all over the place!!(with their opinions)¿ {{My pain Meds just knock – out approx. 60%
    of the pain and I get no buzz whatsoever; just a little muscle relaxation☆

    I know your not a Med. Person but I had a hunch you may have some good info….THX

    Be Blessed!!!! $

    Ken,

    Having had traumatic bouts of sciatica myself, I can attest to it impairing my ability to think clearly. I’ve had disk issues since I was 18, and I’m 62 now. I had surgery to trim the torn disc back in 1976. It’s been an off and on problem ever since. Two years ago it got really bad, and I considered surgery. But, the PT I was doing seemed to do the trick. It went away . . . sorta. I should be doing my PT exercises, but I get lazy about it. Consequently – and ironic that you should ask – it has flared up again. Not quite as bad as before, but still very annoying and painful. I stay away from opiates, for a number of reasons, but they just give temporary relief anyway.

    I don’t know if you’ve gone the PT route, but it helped me significantly. You have to be diligent though, and there are no guarantees. I might have just been lucky. On the other hand, the surgery I had at age 19 has helped me to live a normal, relatively pain free life. Of course we all heal so much more quickly when we’re young, but surgeries have vastly improved since 1976 too. If you’re healthy enough for surgery, and you have a good support system, that might be your best long term solution. For my most recent knee arthroscopy I benefited from a couple months of PT prior to my surgery! So much so that I didn’t require any post-op PT. For my other knee arthroscopy, in 2015, it was surgery first followed by a few months of PT. I have no way of knowing if the first surgery was for more severe tears than the second, or maybe my more recent doc was better at his job. But, I like to think that the pre-surgery PT strengthened the muscles around my knee, and helped me in the speedier recovery.

    I know a lot of doctors seem like dicks, but get a few opinions, and go with the guy/gal who you feel most comfortable with. Just living with the pain is not a very reasonable option, my friend.

    Good luck,
    YUR

    WOW UR,

    God works in mysterious ways. THX for the terrific feed – back (no joke meant). I’ ve been through the PT route every since I first injured my back in 08/07….the last 31/2 yrs have really
    been rough>>>Increased last 6 months so only a couple PTs help/am able to do!!

    One of my daughters is a MD/Major PT. She recommends I do Water Therapy until I get my Sciatic Nerve injections & possible surgery…..^^** She claims that this helps the highest % of people in my condition, of course,
    there’s no guarantee {{also there is very little chance WT will increase the pain}}
    The last time I went through this my Med. Ins.
    payed all but $30 per/session

    I’ am preaching to the choir when I tell you the Sciatic Nerve Problems/Pain are very close to being demonic in nature: exp; For 2 – 3wks you may have very little pain then you may be completely comfortable and out for no apparent reason at all your in misery!!☆♤■■

    UR, THX again for your GREAT input……》》》》May you be Blessed with a permanent healing >>You have some prayers
    heading your way…Amen

    Any time, Ken! Best of luck with the water training. I’ve always heard it’s great for a number of joint problems, but I never thought about it for my back. So, thanks for that tip, brother. — YUR
