March definitely came in like a lamb, compared to the last few months. Since November I had gotten sick in 4 consecutive months. I think it was actually the same infection that kept rearing it’s head. Finally, the 4th course of antibiotics, coupled with a new allergy medication seems to have done the trick. I’ve been healthy for about 5 weeks.
I did stop the injectible RA meds for 6 weeks. Over the past few years I’ve wondered how well they really work. I found out. By the long weekend in February my wrists hurt enough to need ice, my knees hurt like days of years ago, pain meds barely touched it and exhaustion ruled. I started back on the President’s holiday with an injection of Enbrel. The following Monday I did an injection of Methotrexate and this morning was Enbrel. I thought I’d try alternating weeks rather than taking both each week. Perhaps too much immune suppression lowered my defenses too much. So far so good.
Finally I got a chance this past weekend to try out the gear I purchased:
And it was a beautiful weekend to do so!! This is Mount Lafayette, across from Cannon Mt

And here’s a selfie – not a great picture, but I was having a ball!!!
The season isn’t going to last too long in New England this year, so I gotta ski while the skiing’s good. Thankfully my joints feel good enough to be out there.
