Didn't want anyone to worry. This weather has me down. My joints are hurting and my thumb joints are swollen. It hurts my ribs when I breath. I think I'm just gonna bond with my t.v. and heating pads and corn bags.
take care
hugs carol

(((( Carol ))))) stay warm and feel better soon! I'm about to lay back down on my heating pad too been there a lot since last night. I am really hoping this MTX will help this terrible joint pain that I have. Hang in there sis, hugs and love to you.

(((((Carol))))), I'm sending you some warm weather from Alberta!  I hope it reaches you in a couple of days.  I know how hard the cold is on ya.  Heck, I just got back from "sunny L.A." (NOT), and I nearly lost my fingers to all the cold wind.  Can I share your corn bags??? LOL.  Take it easy and be well, my friend!

(((Carol))) I hope you're feeling a bit better today.  I just came downstairs to eat an orange & take my meds, now I'm heading back upstairs under my electric blanket.  Let's drink some hot tea while we're at it.  Love, Butterflake

Carol--I'm just sending you lots of hugs. If it gets too hard to breathe, you HAVE to call 911 or your brother if it's just getting mildly harder. Keep doing that pursed lipped breathing; it does help. I just want to come and wait on you and then sit in a recliner in your room and watch tv. We'll only talk if we feel like it. If we don't, we won't. You are such a sweetheart. Don't go isolating yourself, ok? be sure to call someone every day just to talk even if only for 5 minutes. Oh yeah, write a poem about this sucky disease that you can share with us when you come back.

Ok. I"m done being your mom barking out orders. I'll be thinking of you and as always you are in my prayers.
