Have finally managed to negotiate this new site and have had the problems many of you also seem to have experienced but I am sure that we will all manage to get around it with more ease as time goes on, it is easy to think that the old way was the best but in a few months I think we will wonder what we were worried about and will find the new site simple to get around.
I have taken my 7th dose of the methotrexate today and have not had many problems with it although after about 10 hours I was feeling sick and quite windy so thought that today I would take it after lunch so that I would be in bed when the symptoms started, that hasn't worked I started with the symptoms after 3 hours but have increased to 20mg today will have to rethink for next week and probably take later still. Had decided to take in the morning as take my other meds then and more likely to remember if only take meds once a day.
Am now a gran to a lovely little boy called Harvey, His entry into this world was far from simple and as I blogged in my last message my daughter had pre-eclampsia and was far from well, she was taken into hospital on22nd June for induction and this was started at 10am, Didn't work so another dose given on 23rd waters went at 4am on 24th and she went down and started on the drip at 10am and I went down to the hospital and sat with her and son in law she progressed very slowly and eventually agreed to have an epidural as her blood pressure had gone very high, they couldn't give her this until her blood results were back and there was a technical problem in the lab, then her bloods had clotted so had to be repeated, eventually had the epidural at 4.30 and was able to have some relief and rest until 7pm when Harvey was showing some signs of distress and her labour was not progressing. At 7.20 they rushed her to theatre for an emergency caesarean and Harvey had to be resuscitated twice and was then taken to the neonatal unit, he had antibiotics and had problems with his blood sugars and they were both kept in hospital until 30th.
Thankfully they are both doing well at home now and have all settled into family life.
Thank you for all your kind comments and good wishes on my last post
Hoping you are all enjoying this lovely summer weather and that your conditions are relatively trouble free
