Update on my mom

As many of you know the saturday after thanksgiving last year my mom went into the hospital due to problems with her carotid artieries. We had a rather hellish 10 months after that until she finally started to improve. I just wanted to let everyone know that she is doing much better then she had been a few months ago. I just took her to the doctor yesterday and they're going to start Remicaid infusions as soon as she can get an appointment. She is freaking out about it because it involves needles, but her relatively new found R.A. is no longer responding well to the Rx meds. We're also concerned that one of the meds is raising her bloodpressure which is really bad with that still blocked artery. We're going to keep our fingers crossed in hope that this works better then what's she's on.
