This is brief because classes started this week and I'm already worn out.

Spent 6 hours out for the specialist eye doc appt. on Monday. The short version (the long version is much more fun) is that I do NOT have to quit taking plaquenil. I am very very very very happy. The eye doc was surprised after having looked at my eyes and thinking she too saw a problem. The mfERG revealed otherwise however and she called me personally to tell me all was good.

So - no med change.

Took me up until yesterday to recover from all the exposure of that day but it was well worth it. I guess I'm not quite recovered. I'm still sleeping a lot. But at least the fever and headache are gone.

So happy. The idea of having to go off a drug that has kept me stable for 11 years was really scary.
