36 Hours

Well, I am home. I left the house on Thursday at ten-thirty in the morning and pulled back in around four-thirty in the afternoon on Friday, so that was thirty six hours altogether, with over twelve hours of that on the road. Plus picking up and dropping off the rental car. I am beyond exhausted,... Continue Reading →

Epipha-knee

When we moved into the new house, some friends gave us a really cool hammock for the deck. It wasn't just one of those loose mesh things, but rather a canvas one hanging on a metal frame with metal bars at each end to stretch it flat. We'd always talked about getting a hammock when...

My bendy family tree… 

So I had the recheck with the rheumatologist a week or so ago; as I had already seen on the online portal, the tests for Sjögren's syndrome and Lupus came back negative. He's sending me to a geneticist to screen for Ehlers-Danlos syndrome.  I don't know whether that's his suspicion, or whether he just doesn't... Continue Reading →
