When is your appointment at stanford? You're lucky that you live in an area with such high quality care available. In my oppinion you shoulnd't take aspirin unless a dr tells you too. With Lupus the factor that can cause clotting isn't in everyone and even if you have it they may not have you treated with a blood thinner since these can be very dangerous and hard on kidney and liver. It might also through off tests that they want to do when you get into Stanford.
I think it is really important to find out exactly what it is, keep an open mind, it may be something other than Lupus and they need to know in order to get the best treatment. You don't want these guys just throwing drugs at it. Especially if your symptoms have subsided.
hang in there.
much love to all my lupie friends -
