After Saturday's post, Another MRI for Mary, my weekend went as per usual, filled with marinating on the couch, finishing homework, filling my pill case, and, writing for my blogs - yes, plural.  I can't believe it.  It is still quite nice to know that I am out there sharing on multiple outlets and bringing… Continue reading Remicade Infusion Day #4
