I don't know what has come over me!!

Mirabilia's Royal Holiday and Mirabilia's Midsummer's Night Fairie are now done!!!!

and Chatelaine's Watergarden is well on it's way to being completed . . . maybe 3-4 more weeks.

and I just made a list of what new ones I would like to complete next and, of course, there is 9 of them. So this afternoon I will spend some time making a list of what I still need for each project and plan a shopping trip!

On another topic, my health , I am doing better than I have in the past couple of years. By September I should be in "clinical remission" from the Dermatomyositis. It will never be gone but at least it's under control for now and I will finally (after 2 1/2 years) be off the steroids. YEAH!!! I'm feeling so much better I'm planning to go back to work in September. The fibromyalgia on the other hand has been flaring up quite often but through lots of trial and error we think we have a good combination of medications that will keep it pretty well controlled. Time will tell. As for tests, I have another MRI scheduled for October and another thorough cancer check then as well.

Off to make my stitchy shopping list!!

My MRI is on Friday afternoon. I'm very nervous and not very optimistic about the outcome.

Good News . . . and bad news

Good News:
1. They are finally calling it quits with my pelvic ultrasounds. I have cysts, I'll always have cysts, nothing will change.
2. I'm down to 4mg of Prednisone now!
3. The new meds for my Fibromyalgia is working!
4. I have been feeling very strange the last few weeks, I think it is called "normal". Very little fatique, pain, dizziness, etc.

Bad News: My Mammogram was inconclusive, they're scheduling a breast MRI for me now. Ugh!
