Stacie, we missed you and I was hoping you hadn't gotten really sick. I'm glad you got back to the med that helped you before and that you are now feeling better. That was very sweet of you to take your grandmother in and I am hoping that it works out well for your family and for your grandma. It's good that you are now finding ways to get rest during the day. Make sure that you take time to take care of yourself too. We're glad to have you back.

Thank you all :-) I have a full time job but thankfully my hours were cut a couple of months ago. I was a little upset at first but getting a day off a week sure has been nice yeah now I know this was all a part of God's plan. The day off a week allows me to take my grandma to the doctor, run errands, get her out of the house, etc. I am sure not to over do it and usually lay down for a while after returning home.

I hope everyone is having a wonderful day!

Stacie, anyone who would take in their grandmother when they're feeling as bad as you is a real saint. I hope the extra work and responsibility doesn't hurt your health. Sorry you're feeling worse and I hope there's not too much stress in your life. Take care of yourself and hug your grandma. What I wouldn't give to have mine back! But the stress of taking care of my elderly parents sent me into 2 year flare. I worry that you'll overdo it because you're such a good person. I hope your doctor's appointment goes well and that your rheumy can help you. Let us know how you're doing.

Thanks guys! If it were up to my grandma we would be out scooter-pooping all the time, well not really.... she's not up to it but she likes to talk about it, lol!

Pat, I knew this change would take a toll on me but I wanted my grandma's last days, weeks, months or years to be happy good ones not miserable and in a hateful environment. My hours have been cut at work to 32 hrs since Feb and that has been a tremendous help, see everything happens for a reason. Now I don't know what I would do if I had to go back to 40 hrs a week, lol! My boss is also very understanding, so I know all will work out just fine.

Thank you for all the prayers, I know that is the one thing that keeps me going. Hugs and love to all!
