Has anyone heard from Barb lately? I talked to her in chat last week and she said she was in a bad flare and was afraid she would be hospitalized again. I was just wondering if she is ok.

Barbara is still hanging in there and avoiding the hospital...she's had to deal with the dentist and has a dr appointment this week so maybe there will be an update after that. (I just talked to her a couple of hours ago.)

Be well, Barb!

I talked to Barb yesterday I think it was. Anyway it was the past couple days. She was out at the mall with nikita looking for a dress for some special event she was going to. Nakita was pushing her in the wheel chair which I'm sure was a huge help for barb to get around with. Anyway I just spoke to her for a moment because I didn't want to interupt mom/daughter time together. As for the rest lynnwood got ya caught up.

Hi Donna, Pat, Lynn, and Carol:

I'm sorry I've been MIA as of late but I haven't been doing to well. I had to go out to the mall last weekend to help Nikita get shoes and a cocktail dress she was going to a party. I'm so thankful that Nikita isn't put off by having to push me in my wheelchair. I guess she realizes the only way I can go to the mall is with my wheelchair. Anyway, she looked beautiful and I'm so very proud of her.

Yesterday, I went to the dentist to have a filling replaced. I lost the filling on Friday last week and according to my dentist it was totally gone, no wonder why I had a toothache. As for the rest of me, well I'm not feeling to good, I guess that's part of why I've stayed away. I can't say anything good about my condition and I feel like you must be sick of me fussing all the time. I've cut my steroids back and boy am I feeling it, I'll see both my Rhuemy and Internist next Wednesday the 20th. I hope they have some kind of an option for me. I'm weary and just so sick of all this, all I want is just one day of feeling well, just one, am I asking to much?

Thanks for thinking of me and I miss you all. I hope you're doing better and feeling fine. I'll let you know what the doctor says next week. Take care and try to be well.

Barb, sad you never seem to have a good day. I'm sad for you. I hope your doctors come up with a miracle that will give you some relief, even if temporary.
