Last chemo ?

Praying that this will be my last chemotherapy. 

In a few weeks we will try cutting down on the steroids. 

Walking is going great. Hopefully going to graduate to a cane soon. 

Stills disease? is acting up. Some bad swelling in my shoulders, elbows, wrists, and fingers. Had some cortisone shots but they only worked for a day. Hopefully they can find and treat this.

Being home is great

Being home is great. Very relaxing and a lot of work. It's great to have new deck boards and hand rails and a ramp to help get around. It's also great to have fixed water pipes. Thanks to everyone who has helped out these past few months. A special thanks to Steve and the guys from his church who helped build me a ramp.
