Well, Last Tuesday I went to Boston and had my (second) arthroscopic hip surgery. It went well, though a bit tougher than the first bout. I had a different Doctor and he was much more...agressive. I think he dislocated my hip during surgery to get at it better. He put my foot in some sort of boot contraption, and now the top of my foot and ankle is numb. My guess is that will go away soon...I hope. I felt pretty good till yesterday and had a really BAD mini-flare day...that is what I am calling it, cause I feel fine today. Lupus is so weird and unpredictable. I couldn't even function yesterday, but today I feel great(so far...I've learned though not to conquer the world when I feel better). That's all...Just felt like blabbing. Junebug
