Let it Snow!

It is snowing outside!  Yay!

We have about 3 inches and we are supposed to get about 7 inches more tonight.

Of course, the kids are squawking about a 'snow day' tomorrow, but I doubt it.  However, there is a lot of ice out there, so it could happen.  They will be wearing pj's to bed backwards tonight, the universal way of inducing a 'snow day'.  At least, in our school district!  lol

My infusion went well yesterday at the hospital.  I also had a check-up with my rheumatologist who is happy with my progress on the Orencia and is glad that I am almost off the prednisone.

We discussed Hashimoto's Thryroiditis, a type of underactive thryroid disease that is also autoimmune and can be common to pop up in people with Rheumatoid Arthritis and Lupus.  Next month, we will run some blood tests to check for it.

Tomorrow, Pumpkin will be having her 9th birthday party celebration with 5 friends.  The kids are going to decorate tote bags with fabric paint.  It should be lots of fun and not too messy, at least, I hope not!  :-D

Today, I am just enjoying the beautiful snow and snuggling with my hubby who was home for most of the day.

Be well,

Pumpkin's birthday party sounds fun; when is her birthday? Matt's is coming up in a few days.

Glad to hear the infusion went well and the rheumatologist is pleased with your progress.

Enjoy the snow! Jealous here; we have hardly gotten any snow this year.

I am so happy the Orencia is working for you ... don't you HATE prednisone?  Granted all my aches quit aching, but I hated what it did it the person that I call ME.  Can I come to  Pumpkin's birthday party?  I love to play with fabric paint.  Pennie
