Positive signs in my Health Dept.

After months of doctors and medication switches and tests, my Rheumatoid arthritis seems to finally becoming stable. I went to my last visit with the child Rheumatologist yesterday and after him and the resident nurse gave me a once over, they seemed to be in agreement that the Enbrel is working wonders and that my body is acting well to it! They also think that I no longer need the steroids, so starting this morning I am slowly weening myself off of them! I will be completely pill free in 5 weeks! I am really excited about this because this will be the first time I have not had to take pills in over 5 years!

On the dizzy-spell homefront, I have made an appointment with the Ear, Nose and Throat doctor that the Neurologist told me to see for next friday. Hopefully this doctor will be able to find out what is with the vertigo like feelings. More on that problem next week.
