As long as we don't get ice......good chance of not falling.

Now if ice gets out there......I just may use my walker. 

It is off & on for me with the walker.  Like this morning I did some light groceries.  Was good without it, but took the neck brace, and used the brace while on the bus.  Leg strength was great tho.

And then around 5 PM....some of the worst fatigue ever....ended up going to bed....slept for 4 hours. 

Last night and tonight are MTX nights.   Might be that.  I am 1 month into MTX.

Never underestimate being able to shampoo your ENTIRE head.

With the braces, that was impossible.

Now  :)::).

It is so nice.....people are saying how good I look.

Amazing.....the pains of surgery and mtx are good investments.

My bad days used to be 7 days a week.... Now 2 maybe 3 days.

Meralgia paresthetica pain is down 60%.

Range of motion is coming back.

In a few months I may try to get back to boxing.

Thanks Sharon!

Ya all will love this....I have two Carhart jackets....one red XL & one black XXL.

Been wearing the black....but today it looked big....I thought do I need to get the red?  Am I that small again?  Can't be?!?  So I tried it on.....not only did it fit & zip, it went over my hips!!!

I was right.....down goes the inflammation.....and down goes my weight....and hunger.
