This is just about a whole month without too much arthritis hustle. Sometimes there is the occasional “extreme fatigue” period, battery is empty and need a weekend to be recharged. That’s about it though. I’m keeping my fingers crossed…
Even the nasty Humira shots are beginning to get somewhat easier; last one went in without shedding even one tear.
March first it is time for her bi-annual eye exam at the ophthalmologist, full dilation and check. Hope everything will be clear. There should also be a Hospital visit for a check. Hopeful we can finally stop prednisone, but not convinced until the doc actually speaks those words. Pretty weird to be able to go for just a check up, no treatment or nothing!
March is Juvenile Arthritis Awareness month. I’m working on getting “my” run organized….slowly but surely things are starting to come together. Have been communicating with The Arthritis Society and they have been helpful, just a few things I want to work out yet! Will have an online pledge opportunity for those of you that are interested in sponsoring us! Will post it as soon as it is set up.
Going to be a busy month, but it will be good! We are experiencing a bit of winter at the moment, I can’t and won’t complain about that, given the extreme soft winter we have had so far! Now here’s to hoping the snow will be gone by March 22nd when we are having our run!
The extra day 2012 offers us, our rare leap day, February 29th, is also Rare Disease Day. Many auto immune diseases are on the list of rare diseases. Thought I’d point that out to you!
Have a wonderful March, Spring may be just around the corner!
