Real life

I have my older son set up for a speech therapy evaluation next week, and if they conclude he needs therapy (as I assume they will), there is an open hour for him. This is fortunate, as I was originally told they were all filled up and it might be weeks before we could get him in. School speech therapy hasn't been doing him much good, so I want to see if there's anything else to be done to help clear up his speech issues.

I made an appointment with the Crohn's doctor. My current medicine is no longer working well; I run low-grade fevers (up to a hundred) almost constantly, and my knees are stiff with arthritis, both of which are signs of inflammation. Not to mention all the usual Crohn's stuff, which no one wants to read about:-). I hate to say it, but it's probably time for steroids. Ugh. But we'll have to see what the doctor says!

  1. I'm so sorry to hear that your medication is no longer working. I have Lupus so I know how difficult it can be to deal with daily fevers and inflammation. And steroids are the worse...don't get me started in Prednisone:)I'll keep you in my prayers. Have a great 4th!
