Hello! As I type this post, it's tipping down buckets of rain. My husband is whipping together a home made pizza with mushrooms and black olives. This rainy day makes for an excellent excuse to stay home and do nothing :)
How was your weekend? I hope it was filled with family and friends and good times.
Mine started off strong with walks around the neighborhood with Frodo - more dinners at home instead of eating out (I am on an inspirational roll!) - loving the summer-like days. My husband and I sat in the back yard, listening to the birds, reading books and talking. It was nice.
Yesterday I celebrated my first day in 32 days of not being on Prednisone. Unfortunately today, I'm in a lot of pain in my right hand and wrist, so I'll be calling the RA doc (again). It seems like this is a repeat theme of mine and I'm getting weary of it. I spent most of the day researching my disease and educating myself.
I keep icing and resting, icing and resting. I also have a wrist splint to limit movement.
I am ever so grateful for having a medically managed disease for nearly 18 years with no medicine changes, truly a minor miracle and I haven't had a major flare up for over six years. So I keep chanting over and over that this is temporary. (I've had the same doctor throughout it all).
And while I'm being grateful, I'm glad I can walk - not knitting is a bummer but I guess it's okay temporarily.
If you have a prayer to spare - throw it to my hand and wrist!!
