  • I'm sending you both cyber hugs. sylvi.xx

  • thank you, Sylv, some back to you,x :) trying to keep smiling,

  • Joanne, best you can do is take the antibiotic, rest and let it soak in till it's all gone. Then you can concentrate on the RA drugs. Sounds like you might be a good candidate to go to the Biologics, which are relativally free of major side-effects. Can't hurt to ask your Rheumy about them.

    For now, get your chest infection better fast and keep in touch. Hugs from across the pond. Loretxx
