Hi all.
I know, I know, it's been a long time and everyone missed me. Ive had lots of stuff happening and some trouble with my internet at home. I disconnected from EVERYTHING.

The kids got out of school, I packed one for camp while packing all of them for a camping trip that they leave for 9 hours after the one who went to camp gets back. All this while preparing for the 1st time appointment with the new rheumatologist that was scheduled for the same time as when the kids pull away for their camping trip. (I had a choice of that time/day or 3weeks later.)

Later that same day I adopted a kitten (Allison) from the humane society to go with my 1 1/2 year old cat (Gilligin).

For the next 10 days I was completly unplugged. I screend my calls, I had avoided making dr appts for that week thinking I might plan something those days, so the calender was free, I didn't even attend church those days. I went to 1 movie, but for the most part I just relaxed. I didn't even do a lot of reading, but when I did it was a light fiction.

Most of my time was spent watching the cats get to know each other. They took to each other very easily. No big fights, just some arched backs from Allison and Gilligin would slap her on the head (w/o claws) when she pestered him too much.

My internet was down that whole time, but I was enjoying my quiet solitude.

Now that the kids are home there are sleepovers, movies, laundry and dr appts are back in the schedule. This is why i craved the quiet.

Anyway, I am serching for a set of gloves that have "gel" over the joints that can be warmed or cooled. Ive looked in my area stores, but I am unsure where to surch online. Has anyone seen a product like that, or know a good place to look. If I cant find one I will have to make one.

Now Im going to start reading what Ive missed these past few weeks.

Not quite, I was hoping for "fingered" gloves, with gel just on thetop of the fingers and accross the knuckels. What I am going for is heat/cool with mild pressure on the joints as well. I would also like to have some use of my hands (little bit) while using them. I feel like an idiot with my hands all tied up in frozen clay packs. I cant do anything while i wait. At least in gloves i might be able to grip a mug for a drink, or poke a remote control.
The mittens would at least allow me to slide my hand in/out with ease, but it would not press the hot/cold into the joint like I preffer.
I figure I cant be the only one to want something like this.


I fifure I cant

If you have a medical supply company (the type that supplies in home medical supplies/gear) near you try checking with them. Sometimes places like that have access to products that are very difficult to find.

Hi Christina~

I did a search for 'gel gloves' and there are so many types out there that you'd have to look for yourself. Try searching for them in conjunction with arthritis aids or medical supplies. Hope you can find something that works for you.
