Glad to see your cute face again! for the kind thoughts. I'm hoping surgery's not necessary. One orthopedist says I need only stay off my ankles for another 3 mos (it's already been 4-5 mos! so total 8-9 blech!) and the tendinitis should resolve itself. My podiatrist dxed tendosynovitis and thinks tendon sheath release surgery is needed. My PCP's driving me up the walls, but that's a whole different story. If you read my blog about needing advice you'll understand some...
My rheumatologist diagnosed me with sero-negative arthritis and thinks it's psoriatic arthritis. But I think that may be based on faulty med hx. Rheumatoid arthritis runs in my family so I think I likely am developing RA since 40's the age my joints started getting painfully stiff.
So there you have it! My current med summary.
I hope you & kiernan & your hubby are doing ! Would love to see pics of your baby & you guys.
