Week 15

I had a visit with my Rheumatologist today. He's putting me on an IV infusion schedule of every 4 weeks, instead of 6 weeks.  I get an IV treatment for my rheumatoid arthritis, which slows the progression and helps me tremendously. It's just that I am not only going to have to have blood tests every month, but now I'll be in the Chemo Clinic for 4 hours every month.  This rant is because I HATE NEEDLES.  I can't watch when they stick me.  I can't even stand to have someone touch the inside of my elbow.  I just have to remember, I am much, much, much better off with the meds!
