And So This Is Christmas…


 Or Christmas Eve, anyway.  But I don’t know if I’ll get to write tomorrow, so Merry Christmas to all!

Here, stolen from RA Guy, are the 12 Days of RA Christmas – here’s hoping your holidays look nothing like this!

On the twelfth day of Christmas, Arthritis gave to me:

Twelve days in bed,

Eleven tubes of joint rub,

Ten prednisone pounds,

Nine days off work,

Eight heat and ice packs,

Seven methotrexate,

Six days of nausea,


Four bumpy nodules,

Three swollen fingers,

Two wrist guards,

And a cortisone shot in my knee!!!!!!!!!!!!!


On a more cheerful note, since this is a music blog, I thought I’d leave you with a video of my favorite Christmas song.  It’s an obscure one, but beautiful.  Enjoy!  And if you like it, you can also check out Pavarotti singing it.

    I’ve always loved this piece, and what a gorgeous version. I wish I could sing like Kathleen Battle.

    Merry Christmas to you and your family.
