MsOuchie - read more 'unwanted' complications re RA in arteries and organs.
Dh's sees his rheumy 3x py and always sends him for tests (long list) On top of all his meds, he now gets testosterone injection every 2wks.
The cracks on the big toe looks better but I still need to put dressing on - cracks are not completely gone. But the sore on the side of the foot is deep. We are now at a stage that we can only take one day at a time.
At last - these last few weeks - he is starting to ask me to get him things - either from the garage or whatever. NEVER in his life he ordered me around BUT I told him I've got time and I've got feet - I can do the walking for him. Like last night he asked me to get him some water to drink. Now he is coming right! I am always around him so he needs not to shout for my attention. He always 'take off' over weekends, but this coming week I will see to it that he slows down a bit more.
He is painting the outside of the house - but I think it is time for serious talking - I'll see if I can convince him not to do any painting for at least a week. He must get off that foot now. Hold thumbs with me that he will listen! Wish the weather would become so bad that it keeps him inside! - but,oh my - our part of South Africa has this unusual droughts for many years now. H'm, I think I've got it set in my mind now - I am going to lock him inside!
Cheers everyone - have a nice weekend!
