I've been out of touch for a month, Finally things are starting to get back to normal or as normal as they can be right now. My husband was recently diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis. We have spent the past month finding the right physician and getting his extreme level of pain under control. My family has been through an awful lot over the past few years and I prefer to look for the blessings instead of dwelling on the negative things. Our blessing is that although this is painful and chronic, it is manageable.So, manage it, we will. To quote my husband right after I had surgey for an aneurysm, "We found out what a 10 was....the rest is all 2s".
