Good skin news

Two hospital appointments in two days... This time with my dermatologist. Again the specialist was pleased with progress and has rewarded me with an increase in my methotrexate dosage... WOO HOO!

On the other hand, since it can screw up the liver, there's no alcohol for me in the foreseeable future....

Good news about the skin. Sorry about the higher drug dose. Do you mean not even one drop of French wine? Well, at least you have some
French music à-la-Beaudelaire to listen to. It can be intoxicating!

I wish you could see some of the American drug commercials. If it is a 60 second spot 45 are side effects
that are worse than the original ailment

Good news.

I'm trying to catch up on posts.

Your cats are so handsome.

The Crushed thing isn't STILL going on, is it?!!

I frequently have days when I could be out-thought by a choccie biccie so I am not surprised.

He made a convincing woman!

Thanks Claude... There is also the heady wine of praise too! Seriously if drinking would screw up my liver then I won't!

Ye gods. I suppose this is a protection against litigation?

Tis a shame Nursie but my family are happy. I've given away some beer and any wine that won't keep for a year or two

A comprehensive response Liz. I bet grnny duties are fun!

The commercials are not designed to be funny but.. I am trying to remember the one that warns about four hours of "ahem" rigidity.

Sorry to discover you have anything going on that requires methotrexate. As you know I've been mostly out of touch this past month or more but send you good wishes for a speedy recovery. The Chateau de Rothschild keeps well.

Ah thanks Susan. Well I suppose the Petrus 1945 can keep another christmas too!
