I think it’s safe to say…I think the medications are working! Or maybe I’ve just had for the most part, a pain-free past few weeks minus a few exceptions? Either way, it’s comforting to know that perhaps I’ve finally reached a stage with my RA that proves that it’s under control. I realize I’m still going to have really
icky painful days, those come with the territory, but waking up without pain is honestly a blessing in itself. Tomorrow, I think I may call my Dr. and ask him if he could refer me to a different rheumy-one that is much closer to the one than I go to now.
On Thursday I was able to do something that I have not done in quite some time that actually didn’t involve large amounts of pain. Jackie and I were playing with Braden, and we were hiding under blankets to make him giggle. Hiding under the blanket involves bending your knees and resting your butt on your heels. In the past, I would cringe with pain because of how stiff and sore my knees would get if I tried to sit like that. I was so thrilled that I could sit in that position without wanting to cry! Oh how I appreciate the little things in life.
I had an incredible weekend! Matt was able to visit, and we had such a joyous time together. Our weekend consisted of: playing in a worship band for an event on Berg campus, coffee date, shopping, game night, church, talking-and lots of it, and visiting some family.
Until next time, here’s to feeling GOOD!
