    LOL!! I do sleep. But here lately I've been battling some kind of sinus issue that makes me cough all night. Literally. Add to that I've developed a reflux issue. Doc put me on a med that greatly reduces my stomach acid, which has eliminated the ice pick stabbing pain from the ulcer that developed on my pyloric valve. So that should be healing nicely too. But the reflux is still there. It's just not acidic.
    So I wake up after the first couple of hours of sleep, then I basically take naps all night in between coughing sessions. Just trying to hone in on the right meds for the cough.
    End result? Late night booked loads.

    I truly don't even feel it anymore. Must be healing. I went from pain 90% of the time to 0% of the time. They're going to do a scope next month some time, I think.
    It's hell getting old. LOL!!

    Let me clarify about Guidos opinion
    I may disagree with his carriers new direction but never slam John personally.. I just happen to have a different opinion .
    Load 1 despite recent changes of policies is still a premium carrier never does an O//O have to be worried about being stranded by the roadside. John and Load 1 Will do whatever it takes to get that unit in a shop and back in service!
