Priceless! I love it. Bonnie was watching, too and paid attention to it…maybe I'll have to start it with her. Caseysmum, how long did Casey take to learn saying it?
I don't think it took too long, it was one of the first things she said. My daughter would cover her for the night, lift the covers and peek at her saying it. She caught on pretty fast. They choose what they want to say, lol. I have tried to get her to say I love you after she says night night night, but she never has. But she teaches herself stuff and watches, like she calls out "hi papa" every time my grandson is over, but doesn't often say it at other times.
Both videos are wonderful.... they bring such a big smile to my face. Oscar likes to say peek a boo as well. We have a little game that when he is in the bathroom ... in his condo... and starts to call me... I will hide behind the wall and just put my hand into the doorway so that he can see it. I wave at him and say... peek a boo.... he laughs at me. I will move my hand in different directions so that he does not know exactly where it will pop out at. I think I laugh more than he does.. lol

It can be beneficial when, for example, your knee sustains a blow and tissues need care and protection. However, sometimes, inflammation can persist longer than necessary, causing more harm than benefit.
Pain Management: Treating Mind and Body
Scheman stresses the importance of approaching pain both physically and emotionally and addressing "people as entire human beings.” So while chronic pain medication can be effective and important for pain management for many people, it isn't the only tool available when it comes to pain treatment, and it shouldn't be the only tool that's used.
Medications. "There are a lot of medications that are prescribed for pain," says Scheman, although she notes that opioids (narcotics) and benzodiazepines may not be the best options. Those treatments "have their own problems, and there are no good studies on using opioids for long periods of time for the treatment of chronic pain."
Types of chronic pain medication used include:
NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs), including ibuprofen, naproxen, and aspirin
Antidepressants, which can improve sleep and alleviate pain
Anti-seizure medications, which can be effective in treating pain related to nerve damage or injury
Steroids, like dexamethasone and prednisone, to alleviate inflammation and pain
Therapy. Therapy can be aimed at both the mind and the body. Says Scheman, "I try to look at any of these therapies as not being purely physical or purely psychological — we are always a mixture of both of those things."
Physical therapy is a very important part of any pain management program. Pain can be worsened by exercise that isn't done correctly (or interpreted incorrectly as pain rather than overuse), and a physical therapist can tailor the right exercise regimen for you. Proper exercise slowly builds your tolerance and reduces your pain — you won’t end up overdoing it and giving up because it hurts.
Cognitive-behavioral therapy allows people to "learn and have a better understanding of what the pain is from, and what they can do about it," says Scheman. This therapy is really about understanding the role of pain in your life and what it actually means for you, add Scheman.
Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) can be taken to alleviate the pain caused by inflammation.
They counteract an enzyme that contributes to inflammation. This either prevents or reduces pain.
Examples of NSAIDs include naproxen, ibuprofen, and aspirin, which are available to purchase online.
Avoid the long-term use of NSAIDs unless advised by a doctor. They increase a person's risk of stomach ulcers, which can result in severe, life-threatening bleeding.
NSAIDs may also worsen asthma symptoms, cause kidney damage, and increase the risk of having a stroke or heart attack.
Acetaminophen, such as paracetamol or Tylenol, can reduce pain without affecting the inflammation. They may be ideal for those wishing to treat just the pain while allowing the healing factor of the inflammation to run its course.
Corticosteroids, such as cortisol, are a class of steroid hormones that prevent a number of mechanisms involved in inflammation.
There are two sets of corticosteroids:
Glucocorticoids: These are prescribed for a range of conditions, including:
Creams and ointments may be prescribed for inflammation of the skin, eyes, lungs, bowels, and nose.
Mineralocorticoids: These are used to treat cerebral salt wasting, and to replace important hormones for patients with adrenal insufficiency.
The side effects of corticosteroids are more likely if taken by mouth. Taking them with inhalers or injections can reduce the risk.
Inhaled medications, such as those used long-term to treat asthma, raise the risk of developing oral thrush. Rinsing the mouth out with water after each use can help prevent oral thrush.
Glucocorticoids can also cause Cushing's syndrome, while mineralocorticoids can cause high blood pressure, low blood potassium levels, connective tissue weakness, and problems with the levels of acids and alkalis in body tissue.
