Hi......Joyce, let me introduce you to Max, A.K.A. Ding ~ he's 10 and not so bad anymore just old and senile :)
and this is Ms. Bailey, A.K.A. Dong ~ she's 2 and VERY BAD, but so cute...she's my baby :) she hunts birds with Mr. P, although she's on the DL this winter due to a leg injury and will be having surgery hopefully at the end of the month :/
I have Rheumatoid Arthritis and Ankylosing Spondylitis which is Rheumatoid of the spine & vertebral body.....I also have degenerative disc disease in my cervical spine and my lumbar. I had to have two discs removed and titanium cages fused to the discs in my cervical spine last March, so to get to the answer to your question (I talk a lot :) ) Remicade & Methotrexate are chemotherapy drugs that are used to treat many things one of them being Rheumatoid Disease...I have to go for a monthly infusion, a cocktail as the infusion nurse calls them...not really my kind of "cocktail" but hey it helps A LOT!!! It takes about 3 1/2 - 4 hours and it wipes me out....this is what I look like when I get home....
By tomorrow though, watch out.....there's NO HOLDING ME BACK!!!!!
So that's it in a nut shell....I'm going to go get cozy, because yes ladies it's FREEZING UP HERE!!!!!!!
Until tomorrow, Be Safe & God Bless!
Those were the days...
