I just got online to find out if I had any responses ,and I wan to thank you all for the great support and advise you have given me. I certainly will write the questions I need to know for the Rheumy. I live near Houston and my Dr. will be at the Med Center there.. so I hope she'll be ok.

Thanks again and have a great New Year.
