I have been really sick all week with a horrible chest cold that my beautiful 2 1/2 year old brought home from daycare and had to share with his momma.  LOL  I called my GI doctor Thursday to find out if it was ok for me to do my injection this week since I was sick.  I breifly rememeber him saying if I got sick that I couldn't do it.  Anyway, his nurse called me back and said I couldn't do it this week since I was sick.  So last night I didn't take my injection.  I'm freaking out now because I will be missing this weeks injection.
I know everyone is different but do you think I'll be ok?  I have never missed one so I'm freaking out and wondering if I'm going to
be ok this week until I can take my next one.   Please tell me I will be ok!!!   LOL

I am in the same boat-after 20 days on biaxin for a sinus infection my PCP wrote me a script for leviquin and told me no mtx this week. Since my rhuemy doesn't work on fridays (this was late thursday night) I just decided to take the PCPs advice so I missed my first mtx dose (I take it orally). So far-two days late for the dose I haven't had any issues and the sinus infection seems to be getting better.
Hope you get well soon and can do your next injection.

Well I'm not infected anywhere...just stupid! Had a Fibro moment and totally forgot to take my Imuran for the last two days! In the long run I hope I don't make my symptoms worse either. I've already been in the bathroom 6 times today! DUH!
