I let Lucila in and she asked what was wrong (and when she left, told me to call her if I needed her help) and I tucked into the recliner, but didn't sleep until she'd been here about an hour. After I paid her and let her out, I went back to sleep off and on until almost 6pm. I'm running about five or six hours out of 24, which isn't enough these days. I'm going to take codeine early enough tonight that I'll be able to drive by 2:30pm tomorrow. I hope.
I'm probably not eating enough, either, so I have some elbow mac boiling on the stove and some bottled sauce ready to be heated. I plan to have a cheese sandwich tonight.
I'll ask the rheumatologist about all this tomorrow, although she may just say "ask the doctors who specialize in that." She does get the immobile morning hand, all the skin splits, the arthritis in my right thumb, the new arthritis in my left hand, and the right ankle that hurts and keeps giving out.
