Mississhippi's Madness

A place to share my creative pursuits

My AS has let me know it’s still around…

Things may slow down a bit for me for the next week or so (not that it is ever really fast!). My arthritis has decided to flare up – in preparation for Christmas I believe! – and my right knee has blown up, not literally of course but it may have been preferable! So I had the knee siphoned and a shot of something the doctor prescribed and now I have to keep my leg up for a few days to let meds take their course.

I haven’t had a bad arthritis flare in over four years. You think you have something under control and then, no, you don’t.

Anyway, life goes on and the swelling in my knee will go down. I can be thankful that it is only one joint affected when I know people whose whole body goes into flare.

I’ll have to work out how I can set up to paint with my leg up on a chair – that could be good!
