Once again, I apologize for not writing here. I honestly have good intentions, something always seems to come up as soon as I think about posting here. I need to get in the habit of posting here as soon as I post something on Facebook. That would be the smart thing to do! What an idea! Lol. I also forget I can write from my iPad. I don't et on my PC any more unless I really need to since its difficult for me to sit in a chair and work on the computer for long, which are some of the reasons I can no longer work.
After months of waiting and struggling to get financial aid, I finally got the approvals I needed to start on my new RA meds, Enbrel. The financial aid is enough for four months of copays, which will really help. Not sure what I will do after that though. However, I started Enbrel on Friday and so far, other than feeling more tired and dizzy, I'm getting along ok. I got a sore throat and a cold but it's going away quickly so hopefully I should be ok for Friday when my next injection is due. I was so worried I was going to be really ill. Whew.
Elyssa is still my Doodlebug. She is growing like crazy and growing up in many ways yet mentally, she is still a young child. She is such a joy and really makes me smile. She does things that make me laugh out loud. She s such a special spirit and I'm so blessed to have her.
My mom is so awesome too, I don't know what I'd do without her. She takes such good care of me and Elyssa. I wish I could do more for her, as it should be, but with my declining health, it's been rough. She never let's me feel guilty about asking her to do things for me, although I do... Just because I want to take care of her. She is such a compassionate woman and I couldn't ask for a better mother or friend.
