Some Progress

Wednesday – Taking the day off, have an airport run to do this afternoon – makes for a strange work week – 3 day weekend, work one day, day off, work two days & it’s the weekend again! I could get used to this.

Hands continue to improve.

Edema is steady/my normal.

Joints are same as yesterday, maybe a s in balls of feet & NOTHING in hands – no stiffness or aches this morning! Neck a little crinkly, back and shoulder a bit stiff this am.

Hand report:

Still healing: less red, less swollen, less leathery, less puffy, one new deep blister – sigh

All Healed: not itchy, not dry,  no new little blisters, no new cracks, no peeling skin.

Had the Dreaded “D” yesterday at work, and heartburn in the middle of the night.

Yesterday I ate: coffee, ice cream (yes my go to food – have to fix that), eggs & mayo & butter. Roast, carrots, celery, onions, potatoes, butter, cream. DS cooked & I hadn’t read him in to my new diet plans, so onions.

Tuesday:

Hands continue to improve – no prednisone & no upset tummy

Second set of storms – more edema. Had lymph massage on Saturday & acupuncture on Monday and yet my weight is up to 171.9 this morning. I’m so tired of this.

Joints are a little happier than yesterday, maybe a s in balls of feet & NOTHING in hands – no stiffness or aches this morning! Neck a little crinkly, back and shoulder are happy again.

Hand report: less red, less swollen, less dry, less leathery, less puffy, not itchy, no new little blisters, no new cracks and no new deep blisters. So, that is going well.

Guess, other than the weight gain, everything is either stable or better than yesterday.

Monday I ate: chicken heart/liver in butter, soup (chicken, broth, carrot, celery, tomato, scallion tops), 1/2 cup coffee w/ sugar, banana, orange, 4 deviled eggs (eggs, FODMAP mayo & butter), 1/2 cup coffee w/ cream & sugar, more soup & eggs & 1/2 cup ice cream
