OK i'm off the topic but have to share my joy. The house is so neary there now. We hope to move in in a week or so. I just can't wait. We have been surviving in this tiny house for 18 months and to move back into some space is oh so wonderful!!!
New kitchen, new bathrooms, everything organised around my crappy joints, so I can easily open things and cupboards are mainly all off the floor. Including my fridge. Oven etc. I will need to employ a cleaner but I am soo excited.
My new pain meds are really working for me too. I'm on a 25mcg patch as well as the 12 mcg patch of fentanyl, I probably need something for bt but overall I feel really good. I can't believe I didn't do this sooner, not to have 2 hours relief and then 2 hours waiting to take my next tablets, is just so good. I know there are probably going to be down times but right now I'm riding a wave of happiness.
My rheumy wants to put me on MabThera. Its another chemo related drug used to wipe out B cells, seemingly with RA the B cells can go into over production and these cause joint damage. I need to find out more about it before I agree to this new treatment but its another option. I have to wait 6 more weeks for the remicade to get out of my system before I am elligible anyway so I have lots of time to mull it all over.
I think the house is giving me a wonderful high, I'm trying to enlist a lot of favours from friends to help with the move, my knees and feet are making it hard for me to get around let alone move house, but I will direct boxes and try to organise.
Just thought I'd let you know what I'm up to. Start back at University on the 1st March, so I will be all moved in by then! Golitho
