Afternoon all, I have heard from our lovely girl and she has given me permission to give you all an update.

She had her right knee drained today, and it was painful. She has an appointment for January 6 for the day ward, with a view to having her left knee done then if it is still in need. She is hoping that having had her right knee done things will ease on that side and her hip will feel better too. Her meth has been increased and she is back to fortnightly bloods - we all know how much of a bind they are.

dorcas my lovely, I know EXACTLY what it is like and you have my every and deepest sympathy. I am twanging with it too - never mind sympathetic labour pains, I do the sympathetic knee draining pains! DD

    DD thanks very much for keeping us updated about Dorcas.
    It's great news that you had your knee drained, I know it was painfull but hopefully it will give you some relief when it settles down. With that and the increase in your methotrexate fingers crossed for a less painful start to 2011.
    Big hugs always. rita

    The happiest people don't have the best of everything. They just make the best of everything.

    If you can lay down at night knowing in your heart that you made someone's day just a little bit better, you know you had a good day.

    Hi Iris,

    I do hope you are feeling a little better today. I am so pleased to hear that Dr. Gupta is taking such care of you. It makes all the difference when the Dr cares so much. I have everything crossed for you Iris; I do hope your January appointments give you more relief and reassurance.

    My love and best wishes for a wonderful Christmas day to you and your family,
    Many gentle hugs,

    Merry Christmas Dorcas. I do hope you are able to rest and that the pain has subsided. Knee drains normally relieve the pressure so I hope it starts to work for you soon.

    Hope things are better flower and a special bucket of hopes.... ((((( ))))) Cris xxx

    Hi Iris,

    Happy Boxing Day. I do hope you have managed to munch your way through the day. Fingers crossed that your knees are a lot easier today. It is still freezing here so I have not ventured out as yet. Will have to soon as some supplies needed for the family do we are having on Wednesday. Who said kids eat less?? :))

    Gentle hugs,
