Baseball time is here!!!

The Spring Training games have officially began. The Red Sox has exhibition games against Boston College (W 24-0) and Northeastern University (W 15-0) on Thursday. Last night was the first preseason game against the Twins (W 8-3). So the Red Sox are undefeated.


Anyway, I live with a Red Sox fan and we watched the preseason game last night. Darn NESN (New England Sports network) plays them a lot of them. Wish me luck!! Baseball is started....I may go crazy!!

News from the Doctor

So today was the follow up appointment for the Rheumatologist. My xrays and blood work came back. I found out that all of the joints in my hand and wrists are swollen. My lovely immune system is attacking my joints. We are starting me on medicine. I will me starting methotrexate this weekend. I have to take one 10 mg dose a week. Every two week I get a blood test. If the tests are OK, they want to slowly raise my dosage to 20mg. I will also have an phone call every two weeks with the doctor, as well as an appointment once a month. My doctor is great. Wish me luck.

Three years can you believe it??

Well it is official. Chris and I have dated for 3 years. We celebrated tonight by going to my favorite steakhouse. It was also our Valentine's dinner, since it had to be postponed due to my pneumonia. We had a GREAT time. The food was great. Hope everyone had a great day!!

I am so sick again...

I am home from IL, we all had a great time. It was good to see both sets of my grandparents. I love my hometown!! Here is picture of my sister and I at the party.

So I got sick (thanks UConn DZs). I have pneumonia, which I managed to give to my mom and my sister. I went to the doctor and got meds. Hope to be better soon. I hate being sick.
