    Ok, so I finally logged in here on the 7th of January. I've missed everyone in here.

    My life is relatively boring, though Karma does a great job of keeping me on my toes. She'll be 3 and a half on the 19th. Whatever possessed me to adopt a hound/cross? Probably her sweet face and knowing she had been through some difficult times. She needed a good forever home. She gives me a good reason to get out of bed in the morning.

    The weather report is predicting snow for early next week... we'll wait and see if it actually pans out. Living in this temperate climate sometimes means hit or miss. I know what DS3 is hoping for. I'd be more than happy putting him to work shoveling the sidewalk.

    I'm waiting to hear back from the MS specialists office about my next Rituxan infusion. I thought it was every 6 months, but I got a call last week from someone who said a yearly thing. I started in 2015, is there something knew that I'm missing? Hopefully I'll be getting a call back tomorrow.

    I've been okay lately, but recently I've had some big loss of balance moments, twice in one day I nearly fell. Scary times.

    Rituxan is given in two infusions every six months. Somebody made a mistake....perhaps confused the drug you are taking?

    Welcome back Jendie, glad to see you posting again! I know why you adopted Karma . . . you have a kind, compassionate heart, that's why! It's a new year with new opportunities to look at life through a different lens.
    And NO MORE FALLS, that's orders from headquarters for every one of us!

    I'm feeling weak as a kitten today. Slept like a log, without waking even once, last night. Absolutely no spasms this afternoon upon waking (yep, afternoon, pathetic I am!) or even when touched! That's a first in at least 15 years. Why, was it the antibiotics, the steroids, oxygen, reduction of lump fluids? I did pee like a horse while in the hospital with no diuretics or extra fluids through the IV. Wish I knew how to solve this mystery.
    Still have an appetite for chocolate! Ya can't kill off that one! Just ate part of a chocolate bar my DS gave me at Christmas . . . Hammond's Pigs N' Taters, which is milk chocolate with crispy bacon flavored bits & potato chips . . . not that good! I prefer our traditional Christmas treat, Terry's Chocolate Orange in dark or milk chocolate (whack & unwrap!), yum! DH is laughing at me as I write my chocolate review!

    Thinking of you all, esp. Sunshine as she fights valiantly through her difficult ongoing health battles.

    Nice that you're back, jendie!

    I hope you can get rid of the loss of balance moments. I've been having those too and really must get back to the balance exercises I keep telling myself I should do. Are you doing any of the exercises for improving balance that are often recommended?

    Nuthatch - please keep doing the important work of testing chocolate. Someone needs to do it and we need to know. ;-p

    Nuthatch, you scare me like crazy. So glad you are better enough to eat chocolate. That must have been frightening for you and DH. To be carted away in the middle of the night and put in ICU would be very frightening to say the least. It is so important to eat chocolate! In the rush of the Christmas Holidays with all your family do you think you might have missed a dose of this all important food? That could really make you sick. Seriously, I am just so glad you are better and back home where DH knows how to take care of you. I am sure you are pretty weak, but I hope you will take care of yourself.

    Jendi, so good to see you. Like someone else mentioned, I think it might be a good idea to check and see if they have your medications confused. We all know Linda is on Rituxan and we know she goes twice every six months and then waits another six months before going back.

    Good to see Howie again also.

    I am glad to be catching up on the forum. I am in the middle of taking care of insurance, drugs, HOA problems and you just name it. I might have a breakdown before it is all done.

    Oh gosh, just thought of the fact that I need to order gas for the gas logs. Another little thing that I have been meaning to do.

    If I happen not to get on for a day to two don't think anything about it. I woke up with sore throat this morning and did not get up until late morning. I had taken a headache in the back of my head yesterday and then this. I might be coming down with something. Reading Nuthatch's ordeal has scared me. My throat is still sore tonight. Hopefully, this will not be anything long term, but I will have to wait and see. I was on the phone, getting upset, almost all of Monday and then most of the afternoon. So that might be part of it.

    I think almost everyone on here is on Medicare. Yesterday when I went to get my hair done my hairdresser told me her insurance was $960.00 per month. She is a healthy 60 year old. This does not include her husband. I think he might be on his employer's insurance. So, she said for once she wanted to be older. She said this was the best she could do.

    Virginia, maybe the sore throat is just an effect of talking on the phone. Hope you aren't coming down with something.

    Howie, was it the alternator?

    I get Rituxan twice a year. One dose each time. When I first started, I received two doses two weeks apart, two times a year.

    Agate, I went to the store today, and got in it, and it started right up. I took both sets of keys so I could just leave it running while I went in the store, but still lock the doors. I did buy what's called a jumper box, so I can jump it even if there's no other car to jump it from.

    So with it starting on it's own this morning, I really don't know what's wrong. But I can now start it if it won't start on it's own. Cars are like cats, you never know what they will do next.
