Boo, so glad to see you back. Wish you had better news though. You have been through so much and now this too. I feel for you. Not pity just hurt for you. Wish we could make it all better. I will be praying for you and your hubby. Hope the scan goes well and this is just a really bad infection and not anything worse.
Nic, how are you doing?
Diana, nice to hear that the family is doing well. I hope a few temp spots come up for you before the summer break. I will pray that there would be steady work for you come fall.
Flopsie, so sorry to hear about
your son. So much pain in your life. I've never had to use a PI. Talk to your Better Business Bureau and see who is reputable. If they have a good rating with the BBB then you are probably safe to use them. How is your daughter doing? Still okay on bedrest?
Erin, how goes the quest for SSI? I saw a commercial on TV yesterday about
a website where you can apply for medications to be supplied free or at a reduced cost for those that meet their criteria. Do not remember the name but I do remember that they are linked with the pharmaceutical companies. Something like pharmaceutical assistance program. Has anyone else heard of this? Was watching a show on KCTS I think.
Ducky, was it fun with the kids? If it was then the knees are probably worth it. You do not need to go off the Enbrel but I did with my sinus infection since they are so hard to get rid of anyway. Since the Enbrel supresses your immune system and the antibiotics kill off the infection as well as some of the "good" bacteria I figured that if I was on the med while on antibiotics I could end up with a worse infection if my body couldn't fight back well enough. Also you need your immune system to help fight the infection so I guess in my mind why supress it while trying to fight something. Personal choice. I will take the Enbrel atleast a week to fully get out of your system and by then you would be almost finished the antibiotics so for you maybe not worth it. I was on antibiotics for a grand total of 30 days so for me it was worth going off the Enbrel.
Yesterday hubby and I worked together and we put a deck in the back yard. My body is telling me I did too much but it (the deck, not my body) looks great.
Babysitting 3 days this week in exchange for my friend babysitting for me next week. I was offered a vacation relief spot so I am working full time next week. I haven't done a day shift in almost a year so it will be an interesting week. By the end I'm sure I'll be wondering why I agreed to this but when the paycheck arrives with 56 hours on it I will know why.
Gentle hugs to all. Hope all is well with everyone.
Worry not for tomorrow, for tomorrow will take care of itself.
Remember healing comes one step at a time, sometimes it seems that its one forward and 2 back but ultimately, always in a forward direction!!!
