I'm Still Here!

No post since March 15th just isn't like me.
Lupus has done me in and knitting has been slow.
When I get down I find others who are having a more difficult time and that stops me from feeling sorry for myself.
I ran into a friend I have not seen for a long time and she was with her beautiful 6 year old daughter who has Juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. This sweet angel goes through so much pain she can't walk sometimes. They are going to start her on shots of Methotrexate. I'm on this chemo and I know what it does to me I can't begin to imagine how she will deal with it. We must find cures to these diseases.
My first born and husband are in their first home so I've spent a great deal of time with them.
I hope to post picture of my slow moving unfinished projects this weekend.

Hope you feel better soon Lupie.
My dad's a GP and told me once that kids cope with illness in a completely different way. He'd just diagnosed a 12 year old with diabetes and rang her a few weeks later to ask her how she was. Yeah fine, she said, just have to have an injection every day, that's all. Completely unfussed by it all.
