Crones Meditate In Their Fashion

Meditation “a time when a thought could come to mind, or something beautiful truly seen, or a dream or conversation remembered… an internal meeting, in which silence invites thoughts, images, and feelings”

Gardening is my meditation.

Hiking is my meditation.

Baskets are my meditation.

Sickness robs me of so much. As my body heals, I’m dreaming garden, hikes, baskets again.

Health Stuff Sunday:

Balls of feet a  swollen this am. Maybe a 0.5. Hands only swollen around nails. Nothing is stiff. Nothing is achy. Neck still creaking.

Lymph still improving. Measurements today show me down 15 inches since last month, across the 25 places I measure! Only 4.5 inches more to get back to my pre-prednisone Aug 2012 size and 45% of the way to second goal – to return to my lowest post RA size. Good progress!

Right hip still a ball of fluid, makes sitting unpleasant.

Tummy still flat.

Weight this am 171.3 –steady :)

Hands are healing. Three fingers are normal, 7 have dry spots,  one knuckle with scabs, still edema and redness around nail beds, no cracks, no blisters!

Yesterday I ate: chicken broth, chicken, eggs, beef broth, pork, grape juice, aloe juice, grape jello,  and  coffee with cream and sugar.

Sixth day of the elimination diet. Fine so far. Not bloating or gas.

No neuro symptoms.
