Quick Update

It's been almost exactly two weeks to the hour since I got out of surgery and I have to say that I've felt better.  Overall, I have been doing much better but this recovery is a lot sorer than some of the other times.  Just when I think that I'm well on the road of recovery my body will just start aching (for lack of a better word) all over again. But I'd definitely rather deal with this than how I felt pre-surgery any day :)

The real update though is that I heard from the company who was setting up getting me on the Humira and... the order is being processed and will be here on Tuesday.  Completely freaking out here!!!  I called the Dr's office and we have my teaching and first injection set up for Thursday.  Ugh, one week from today.  I am still a mix of emotions but I know that God's not going to put me in any situation that I can't handle either way it goes.  Thank you God for that!!!  So we shall see.  I welcome all of your thoughts and prayers these next few weeks.  I'm going to need them!!!

I know this is a fairly unknown disease and topic for some so if you have any questions... just ask!!!  Education is the key, not to mention that talking about it helps me sort out what I know and feel :)


  1. I'm so excited for you to start this stuff! I have high hopes for it! I'm excited to FINALLY see you in remission!!! :)

  2. I will put you on my prayer list Kristina and hope you start feeling better soon!! I love you girlie!

  3. Thinking of you and praying for you and the things coming up.

    Yesterday, I looked into giving blood. Haven't done it since highschool or so, and being that I am O negative, I am feeling inspired to start helping regularly. Let me know if you have an direction for me or if you know how I can give to YOU directly, if you are ever in need. Not sure that it works that way, but that would be neat. xx, cbm
