Day 270 – The First Wealth is Health

Art Apple - Day Two Hundred SeventyThe first wealth is health. – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Doug and I are headed to Maine for the Fourth of July holiday. I’ve been furiously working to make sure I have everything in order…

Shorts, flip-flops, and fleece (it is summer in Maine)

Art supplies – check.

Someone to house sit and take care of the beasties – check.

Infusion? Humm, yes tomorrow – check!

A life with auto-immune arthritis is planned around infusion dates to ensure they line up with events in life that will take a bit extra uumph to get through. I’m thrilled that tomorrow I get hooked up to my i.v. of Remicade so that our week with my family will be a bit easier and my energy levels will survive the cookouts, fireworks, and water-balloon fights! I will happily plan my life around the medicine that allows me to enjoy these events with a bit more gusto.

Until tomorrow.

      Thank you Vic! We had a great time – it had been a couple of years since we last had a vacation so we really loved every minute.
