I have spent 2 weeks in hospital with a flare up of my rheumatoid arthritis, and c diff. I have been off my methotrexate because of an infection. I was severely dehydrated, lost a lot of weight and muscle tone. I was transferred to rehab on April 9th for physical and occupational therapy. I don't even have enough muscle strength to get in and out of  a chair. I will have to be restarted on medication after I am off of antibiotics.

I finally got out of rehab this past weekend, I am using a walker, have splints on both wrists, and am receiving physical and occupational therapy at home. I still have alot of muscle weakness in my arms and legs.
