January 5 thru March 25th I have been riding my stationary bike and eating healthier. I ride between 3-4 miles 5 days a week. I have lost 14 pounds and down a pants size.
MLK Weekend. Regina and Dave's first visit since married. Visit was good. Just hung around, visited. Carlisle's came over Saturday night. G and D and girls went to church with us. They left around noon yesterday. Kids all got along. So good time. Too much temptation on food I did good except dessert one evening.
February went along pretty good no flares, meds are keeping pain at reduced level.
March was full of preparation for a 50th Wedding Anniversary for the Carlisle's on March 21st. There was a great turn out almost entire family came. I was hurting a good bit by evening my knees mostly. During this weekend we celebrated Hubby's 60 BD. I made his fav meal Lasagna and I made him 2 cakes. Many backache breaks were taken and Trimodal was added during mid day everyday.
We also are so excited that we are going to have grand-baby #14 in October! YEAH!!
It was hard during last weekend with all family here. My eating and etc but I kept riding my bike. Yesterday I had a bad pain in my left knee and it popped and I kinda went down on it pain was quick hard and gone (this has happened many times) but since then I have had a feeling of a rubber band being pulled behind my knee... So I did not ride my bike today. This week I have been having worse than normal backaches and headaches at night. This morning was the worse which included nausea. I believe all this is the result of what I am thinking is a Lupus Flare coming on. I have actually have been having minor issues and been able to handle with medication.
My next Rheumy appoint is April 4th so hopefully I can wait till then. If not I may have to see my Ortho if the knee doesn't let up with Flexural and Tramadol.
