I'm still alive! Giveaway update.

Tomorrow I go see my rheumatologist and I'm not sure what's going to happen.

He said lose a pound or two before you come back-
Not only did I NOT lose that pound or two I gained 5. I'm thinking one of the new meds is the culprit.

......For real!

He said you have carpal tunnel....Get night time braces and start wearing them every night.

I still have NOT gotten them. No excuse except I just haven't and the bad part is I know my hands would feel better if I did.

Also my new arthritis med is making my stomach hurt just like the last 5 did! I'm beginning to think its something I'm just gonna have to learn to live with....YaY me!!

On to better things! We leave Monday for vacation in Branson! 2 passes to SDC and going to see The Baldknobbers.
Its going to feel good to get away!

I'm having a giveaway for Therabreath mouth wetting lozenges. These are great if you have trouble with a dry mouth or just to keep some in your purse for fresher breath. They are small and they are NOT strong like some that I can't stand. There's 100 in the box the winner will get. Someone.....anyone please go enter!!

Now to my favorite subject-
Drex... He's still fabulous! He has taken a few steps and he has 2 teeth with a couple trying to come thru. His hair is finally thickening up and has some curls...SWEEET!!
He is into everything and I mean everything. I had water bottles and potatoes all over my kitchen, toys from one end of the house to another and I lost him....briefly, one day and found him in the bathroom with one of my big spoons stirring the toilet water....and by toilet water I'm not talking about the kind ladies spray on themselves. He was so happy and proud of himself.
He is so happy, smiling all the time and he's also a clown, trying to make us laugh. He loves almost all food. He's ticklish...very. He loves to wrestle and loves his Puff. Puff was bought for my nephew when he was a baby and he's 8 now so Puff is old and he stays dirty because Drex takes him every where he crawls...using Puff like a rag to clean the floors.
He's still my heart and has all my love.
Best get back to the washer and dryer! Later gaters.

Sorry to hear that you are having a bit of a rough time right now. Much love and prayers to you.

Drex sounds like a fun handful!

Bet you threw that spoon away. I know I would have. LMBO

Is there any chance your stomach can get use to the meds???

Have fun in Branson and here I thought you were coming to visit me :(

Hang in there with the meds. Here's a great tip to keep in mind with Drex...when the house is quiet, it's time to look for Drex. LOL

your Drex sounds like a whole bundle of fun!

I've got arthritis issues too. I feel for you. Celebrex was awful on my stomach so I stopped it. Sometimes there are patches that can be less invasive if you have just a few areas of pain. Some meds so cause weight gain. I hate all the side affects!

go out to walmart on your way to the doctor so you can say you got the braces; I wear them on both wrists at night.

Sorry your arthritis is flaring up and that the medicine makes you feel lousy :-(

Yay that Drex is doing so well!
