I wanted to give you a heads-up that I’m going to be offline until after Memorial Day. I’ve just got some things going on that will make it difficult to post. (Don’t worry, it’s all good and I’ll fill you in after Memorial Day.) I hope to continue to check in on the many blogs that I follow during this time, so hopefully I won’t be completely out of touch.
In the meantime, it’s been nearly two months since I’ve had any RA medication except Mobic and I’m doing as well or better than I was on the drugs. In many ways, I’m much better because I don’t have the fatigue that came as a side effect of the medications, so I feel better all over, have more energy, and am enjoying life more fully. I’ve even dropped down from the 15 mg to the 7.5 mg dosage to save my stomach and it’s working quite well.
The knee continues to improve. It’s still a little sensitive to pressure (getting down on my hands and knees is a no-no …). I would say I’m about 85-90% healed and can tell the surgery did a world of good.
So that’s all for now. I look forward to being back online in about three weeks and catching up. Thanks for checking in.
