Wonderful news Hedgehog--
 
Hope this leads somewhere good soon.  I go for my first Remicade infusion tomorrow morning.  Sure would prefer something that doesn't have such possibilities for side-effects.
 
But I'm determined to think positively about this.  I can't go on the way I have been.
Wish me luck! turn
