Stuff

Well I have a new addiction. FACEBOOK. I haven't ever been on myspace or facebook or any of those things...I don't have a fancy cellphone that takes pictures or even texts. I'm a technological cavedweller. That's why it's amazing that I can have my own blog! I can do e-mail and type, that's about it. Well, someone sent me an invitation to facebook, and now I'm a junkie. In 24 hours. I've found friends from college that I haven't talked to in 15 years! Crazy. It's like, no matter how far away you are, you can be "right there." (Ever notice how hard it is to type with a big ol bandaid on your finger??? I keep hitting more than one key at once!) Technology is really shrinking our world!

On another front, I go to the rheumatologist on Thursday. My treatment this past Friday in Ann Arbor went fine; we were blessed to drive out of the snow on the way there, and had blue sky and sunshine in Ann Arbor. Drove back into the mess just before Kalamazoo. My neurologist wants me to wean off the prednisone RIDICULOUSLY slow...like over 4 months!!! I'm like, dude, you have no idea what this stuff does to me. He said weaning too quickly can cause pain, but it was the exact same pain I had before I ever went on a higher dose, so I can't imagine that's why. Hopefully the rheumatologist will over rule him!!

I'll keep ya posted! And if you're on facebook...look me up!!

I have no clue what Facebook is. Toss me a bone - throw me a clue. I'm still trying to figure out Twitter and why anyone would care.

Andrew is on facebook and I think I'm going to have to get on in order to be able to keep up to date on the child's insane schedule!

My sister has found tons of old friends too and loves it. That's so cool that you've been able to reconnect with people - how fun!

I'll be praying about your appt. on Thursday. Be sure and give us a report.

Hey Joanna,
Conmpared to twitter, facebook is a Cadillac compared to a Go cart. I have found so many old friends... It's crazy! And awesome. I'll send you more info.

Leigh, thanks...I will let you all know!
