Welcome back. I am sorry to hear about your father, my grandfather held on just long enough to see me when he was dying of cancer so I know what you mean about him hanging on to see you. I do not look forward to first dates, the idea scares me and makes me feel old since it will happen in the next few years for my oldest (she will be 15 this year). I hope the new medicine works, is that the IV one I forget. I dread the day enbrel stops working because then it will be IV meds and I hate IVs.
