This is a picture of my great, great niece Danielle who I haven't met yet. She lives in California. She is a cutie.
I weighed in this morning and lost another 3.4 lbs. for a Weight Watcher total of 40 and my total of 54. I am so happy about the weight loss but I have not been happy about my health.
The month of June I went to the emergency room twice. The first was pain in my knee and second was the pain in my shoulder. I know I mentioned this in a previous entry but what I am getting at is that I finally went to my general doctor and told him my symptoms and he gave me a blood test for about 5 different things. He called me a few days later and told me I have Migrating Rheumatoid Arthritis. I am on steroids and heavy duty pain killers. The first day I took the steroids I started feeling 110 percent better. I took my last one today so I hope the pain doesn't come back. I don't have an appointment for the specialist until the 15th. I had my bone scan on Thursday and I am hoping to hear from my general doctor next week.
I would not wish this pain on my worst enemy. I can't explain it but it really, really hurts. I have been doing some reading on the internet about it. I am going to have tons of questions for the doctor when I go see her. I guess if I can get through brain surgery I can get through this.
The title of my blog is because I have done nothing today but cook my hubby's lunches for next week and make a double batch of Oreo Fluff for my daughter and her boyfriend. I also made some pasta salad for the party we are going to tomorrow at my sister in law's house. They have a new pool and a hot tub so I know I am going to be swimming since it will be the first time I have gone swimming this year. I am a water baby - Pisces.
Well, I am sorry to be such a downer but I wanted to let you all know how I was feeling.
