Daily the hummingbirds come to the feeder, difficult to catch them with the camera as they are so fast, good shot made me smile.
Yellow squash and tomatoes from a garden. Placed them on a plate with the 3 green peppers found
growing in the compost :) A few calls and was able to track down the special person who left them.
At noon vegetable soup simmering from left over roast and vegetables. With an addition of corn, peas and tomatoes it was so tasty and have lunch for tomorrow and 2 cartons in the freezer for a
day I do not feel like cooking. A roast that is cooked with vegetables - makes many welcome meals.
Soon replacing my computer, will have a larger screen and seems my problems with service is caused by living in rural area
and this one uses an air card. My computer is for pleasure, communication with children and grandchildren, and a lot ordered
from Amazon so even with problems it is not such a big deal - just frustrating.
As time goes by do not want to be sharing a lot about progressing Rheumatoid Arthritis
and just plain aging. Even though all my friends are at a different stage of life then this one,
just maybe something shared will help someone as times goes by.
Weeks of severe pain and not sleeping was very difficult for me.
Especially for one who has always slept and this was a new experience
but now know it was because of the night pain. Pain pills did not work, made me have awful dreams in the little sleep I experienced. I have had 4 children but never have experienced ongoing pain like what I was experiencing. Will never never go on Prednisone again in my lifetime,
it has taken me a year to finally stop taking this medication.
It is a quick, inexpensive miracle drug - but so many side affects.
My RN daughter was so helpful to recommending some things that she was knowledgeable about.
You have to be so careful about inflammatory medications as they can cause severe stomach problems. Celebrex gave relief, no side affects and have on hand for painful future times.
Fortunate I am as the lowest dose of anything is a help to me.
Enough shared at this time but finally Monday had cortisone shots for shoulders
and neck and relief within a few hours. Hopefully they last for 3 to 5 months and looks like this is going to be where I get relief and feel like going on with life.....
I was told once again by my kind doctors that this is progressing and is not going away.
Guess it finally has sunk into my brain. Kept having thoughts with all of my GOOD LIVING that I could conquer this condition. Continue to be thankful that this is all
that is going on and healthy in every other way. Also told once again it is because of my lifestyle of many interests staying busy, resting. yoga, diet, meditation, prayer and weight has helped me,
I listen to the their compliments and medical advice, but still do not like what is going on...
My local pharmacist even brought me my medication as I was not up to driving
and that is not usually done. So many angels out there :)
Again, thanks for the kind words
and guess I will just keep sharing for a while longer..
