Dragon*Con. Most of this last week was taken up by being in Atlanta, Georgia at Dragon*Con. I had a spectacular time, attending eleven writing panels, getting Peter David and Alan Dean Foster to autograph books, listening to Tom Smith, going to parties… and yes, eating Alkaline. I took with me: almonds, romaine lettuce, snow peas, sesame basil crackers, barely ripe bananas and granny smith apples. For dinners I mostly at at a Japanese food court place that had a Delicious Soba Noodle Salad. Here and there, I had regular salads(Subway and Metro Diner). I was back on my full course(sans Enbrel) of drugs(Prednisone, Plaquenil, Arava, Naproxen) to get things back under control. I came home from the con feeling far better than when I had left, flares all gone and even my pesky cough has dissipated.

So, I cut the drugs off too soon, or too sharply, I guess. My right elbow, the one that started it all, was swollen most most of this weekend. Gave it a little Prednisone Saturday night, but it didn’t help enough. Nothing else is swollen, but a bit more achy than I’d like today, partially due to exercise yesterday, but partially not, I imagine. Going back on the half Prednisone, Plaquenil and Arava to calm it down and then see where I can go, more carefully this time. Big bowl of veggies for lunch, I’ll beat this yet.
