Hope everyone is having a good weekend! (Dr. Appt update too)
Hi just checking in
I have been off the site for a few days now, taking care of the kiddies and my hubby is back now from Daytona Beach! Yeah. He and his friends had a nice time and he was happy to see that I got through the week alone and managed the house and kids just fine. (With prednisone though!)
I saw my primary care doctor on Thursday night for a check up. We increased my plaquenil to 400mg per day instead of 200mg. I hope it will help, but I know that it will take forever to know if it is working or not. My doc was great, proud of me for recognizing my last flare on my own and starting the prednisone. He is also proud that I have actually accepted the Lupus diagnosis and decided to learn to live my life with it, rather than always searching for it to be something else more curable.
Anyway, I wanted to share that and say hello!
