    Default Hellooooooooooooooooooooo

    Dang it's good to be back...

    Well I had supper with my sister. Talked her into going back to the doctors. She's been for blood work and Xrays and a scan. Just waiting on results. Though our family doctor said she doesn't think her lupus has reactivated. She thinks it's more like injuries from jogging and such. My sister is a health nut. Hopefully she'll back off the jogging ... there are other things she can do.

    We had a good talk. She's at a loss as to why I didn't know mom knew she had lupus. She truly wasn't trying to keep anything a "secret". I believe her.

    It just breaks my heart, I wish I had known. I've been playing the "if I had known I could have........" game. I know it gets me no where, but we all do it anyway.


    As for a diagnosis...NOT. My family doctor didn't like the new rhuemy that was picked out for me. It's not who she had requested and she said non of her other patients who have gone to that one have stayed with her. So she asked me if I would mind waiting.

    When I finished laughing......I said, "Wait?" It was going to take me untill November to be able to see her anyway. So I'm staying with stinky face.....for now. I have an appointment May 28th, we'll see what happens.


    Supper time here...so fill me in on how you've been doing. I'll continue to play catchup when I get back from supper.

    Hugsssss to the rest of yas and start typing your stories :lol:

    Hey you..

    And hey, it is great to read you, diagnosed or not...Oh no, not Stinky Face....I have an appointment with my dead stare, wax figure Rhuema...on the 28th too and also with my Gastro.

    As you know my Mum died 13 years ago. I still do the IF's thing. I make myself stop, because I was who I was then. Naive, thought my Mum would never die. I thought I was asking the right questions..how big, how long,
    ...statistics. I was in denial about her dying The IFs are, well IF I have made her get a third and fourth opinion...if I said lets go to Europe. IF... I excepted she was dying, maybe I could have said a real, real goodbye.

    But after I say each, I follow it up with, I did what I knew and I can't change it..guilt is a hard load to carry on the heart..it is more weight than carrying an elephant on our back. We did or didn't do because of what we did or didn't know...


    Hugs...with the SSSSSSSSSSSS

    Default Well said...

    And you are very right.

    I loved my mother very much and I know she loved me too. In the end that's what's important.

    How have you been feeling over all? You sound perky! or should that be...you read perky? LOL

    My last couple of blood tests have come back with a negative ANA. I'm still on the plaquenil. But I think I'll be off it come the end of the month. I'm not going to wear my compression socks for three days before my rhuemy appointment. I want to make a point with her that the plaquenil isn't doing anything for me.

    The compression socks and the knee brace are some of the things that have been helping me to function....not the plaquenil. She seems to be demented enough to think that if she puts me on a drug then it must be working for me.

    I wish it was, but neither the pain nor the swelling have changed any. Well I'm off to cruise the boards hahahahahaha. Catch up with ya there.

    Hellllooooo SITC! So good to 'see' you! I'm so glad you and your sister are on good terms...and that she may not really have a lupus flare going on.

    Don't be hard on yourself about your Mom. You loved her...she loved you....you did all you knew how to do. I always wish I had done more to make my Mom's...and my Dad's....last weeks (days...hours) better for them. Wish I had said some things...wish I had NOT said some things. But, I loved them and they knew that - they loved me, and I knew that. That's what matters, right? So, celebrate your relationships, like the one with your sister. Your Mom would be proud!

    Default SITC

    So happy for you that your dinner with sis went well. Perhaps IT has not returned to her.....what a wonderful thing!

    I am truly sorry the Plaquenil has not worked for you, and I truly hope you get some answers soon.

    It's good to be back...isn't it????
