Breaking News

I can feel the bottom of my feet. Or rather, through the bottom of my feet.

Ok, maybe it's not earth-shattering news, but a very pleasant development. I was vacuuming a bit today and noticed the softness of the freshly vacuumed rug in my living room. Then it occurred to me that I'm not sure the last time I could actually feel the texture in the rug.

So that's pretty cool.

Although now, there are some joints in my hand which are swollen and definitely sore. Thanks, rheumatoid arthritis.


  1. That's great news about your feet! Do you think it's from the solumedrol?

    Sorry your hands are swollen and hurting ... I know what it's like when it feels like for every step forward, something takes one (or three) steps backward. Here's hoping you stay on a forward momentum!

  2. Lisa,
    That's really great News!!! I hope that continues and keeps improving. Are you or did you start a new medication or is this all happening on it's own?

  3. Thanks ladies,

    Yes, I think that this 2nd round of steroids (in two months) has kicked in a bit. The fatigue is lifting too.

    I don't want to get too excited, but it would nice to be able to enjoy at least part of the summer.
