* inject my last dose of Humira cry

* basic chores - make bed, do dishes, 5x5 minutes tidying, vacuum my floor, 15 minutes gardening.
* Thursday chores - ironing, mending, laundry
* Crohn's & fibro care - exercise, stretching x3, strengthening, meds.
* eat one of the higher residue meals that I've stored in the freezer, to make space for low residue cooking.
* think about a low res pureed soup I can & might make over the weekend
* devotions

If Humira leaves me with little or no energy:
* go through cupboards and make a list of toiletries etc I'll need in the coming weeks, so I won't be forced to the shops unnecessarily
* make a list of sitting chores & hobbies that have been neglected during this active phase, so I can at least look forward (ha) to something about being more housebound and immobile. Bonus points if I start checking to make sure I have everything I need to complete them, so I don't suddenly discover I *have* to leave the house, just when I'm least able to.

Alternatively, if I'm reasonably active and mobile:
* return books to library
* go to post office; post the parcels etc I prepared on Wednesday

Bonus points - do Telstra errands; do errands on the other side of town. Make low-sugar muffins / cake for travelling. Grab a few groceries. (I think I have Buckley's of doing any of these, but at least they're posted as options!!)

turn (that's me, dashing around like a headless chook and going slightly loopy with the pressure of it all) turn

I wanted to let you guys know my little girl arrived last Thursday. She's healthy and amazing. I really appreciated all of your thoughts and well wishes while I was awaiting her arrival.

Less pacting for me now, but every day is pretty much the same:
- Take care of baby girl
- Enjoy baby girl
- rest and take care of myself too


Hope you are all having a great week!
Currently in remission!

Hj-enjoy your baby girl and I am so glad she is healthy. Please post pictures in a few weeks when you have a few moments.

Ivy-that sounds like much more than I could accomplish. Please take care of yourself.

My pacting-pick up the second round of antibiotics from the pharmasy-this means eating is going to be a problem again-biaxin and plaq together are not pleasant. So also pick up a few groceries that are more likely to be apealing to my quesy self.
Work anyway.
Send out two resumes.

hj, what wonderful news. We've been thinking of you and hoping everything was going well, and have been looking forward to having you back with us and hearing your news. Here's a big welcome back to you, and a welcome to the world for your baby girl :-).

It's 9.15 am, and I've showered (!), done the dishes, thought about soup / muffins etc, and have almost finished making my bed. Am heading off now to put on a load of washing and will be back shortly to inject Humira.

Busy busy...

So sorry about the imminent nausea, sj.

Sounds like you're doing a lot there too, Jo. Good luck with it all.

2pm update - made the bed, done the dishes, eaten the higher-residue meal, gone down the street and posted the parcels and returned the library books. All that running around constituted exercise, so that's done too.

Off I go again; good luck to all;

7pm update - I've done all the errands I'd listed for today, even the optional extra ones! I'm really tired now, though.

Have also done the washing, the ironing, and 15 minutes of gardening. I still have to tidy the house, stretch, and do devotions, but will try to get those last things done before bed.

Right now, I'm going to inject my very last dose of Humira. *sigh*
