I had my check up this morning, and the good news is that my last xrays didn't show any damage to my hands and feet. So considering the fact I've generally been feeling good since the new year my doctor's happy to keep me on just the hydroxychloroquine. Dodged the methotrexate again!! They're changing my check up interval from 3 to 6 months too. Seems a bit weird that I won't be going back for so long, but I have my doctor's number and she said to give her a ring if anything comes up or if I have a flare and need an injection. And can I just say again how much I like my doctor, she's so nice and thoughtful. Overall, great news. On the downside, I think the apocalypse is a couple of days late but is definitely starting right now in Scotland. We have CRAZY strong winds, branches are blowing off trees and stuff. Plus apparently another volcano's erupted in Iceland and flights might be disrupted. This is VERY bad news as my friend from Canada's flying over a week tomorrow and then 2 weeks tomorrow we're meant to be going to Portugal!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm trying not to panic. I'm sure everything will go as planned. Stupid volcano. Doesn't it know I need to go lie in the sun???
