Hi Folks, thanks a million for encouragement & prayers, need all I can get right now. If I had to deal with the hard core pain and crohns again at the same time I am not sure I could. I battled that battle for so long and it took alot out of me.
I know as I get older it takes longer to get health issues under control, the body can only handle so much hitting at one time. I just know if someone would
have said I would be in this shape 8 yrs ago, I would have laughed in their face, how little we know what the future will hold for us, I am the poster girl for that one. We are having monsoon weather here in Tx and its getting to me. These overcast days are awful, I need sunshine. The air is thick with humidity, I have to strap on the oxygen tank to walk out back to piddle around. I made a real big mistake on my oxygen recently. I use liquid oxygen and my portable tank was a small one but the problem is it only lasts me about 3 hours. I asked for the next size up, much bigger portable. But, if its completely filled I cannot lift it, let alone carry it. So, I am suppose to get my small unit back today. I just feel like a dog on a leash with the small one and only having three hours of use.
Golithe unfortunately my gi agrees totally with the rheumy on the Humira. These sores are not something to jack around with when they become infected. Too risky for blood poisoning to set in they tell me. Mine have swelled, been red hot angry and puss filled, this is why I get cut off the Humira. I had a small tiny cut on the bottom of my toe that I did not even know about. That landed me 8 days in the hospital with cellulitis in both legs. All from that stinking tiny unknown cut. So, no they will not take any risks or chances with me.
I am waiting on the sun to come out its been peeking thru a little behind the clouds. I am off to the dentist this afternoon to have two permanent crowns put on, yippee. No more root canals for me. Now, I remember why its been 20 years since the last one. I think next time I will opt for those teth that go in a glass of water on the night stand at night lo. Too expensive on top of it all. I could have made a hefty down payment on a new car for the cost of these two.
Hope everyone has a LPD and can enjoy some of it....Hugs to all Susie
