    Default Bloody beauty.

    Got back from the specialist today and my results are the best they have been in about 3 years. Lupus markers are as in-active as possible, protein is well in normal range, plus all other blood and urine results were top notch.

    And almost forgot, a reduce in Prednisolone which takes me down to the magic number of 5mg. The only thing that frustrates me now is how much 'sleep debt' I have to catch up on. Steroids + depression has caused me to lack a large amount of snooze time for the last two and a half years. But overall enjoying the improvement.

    Good news at the doctor's office is a rare thing, so it's always great to hear when someone get's some. This is awesome news!

    Congratualtion's mate, now this is lovely news to hear when you've been ill and going through such alot.
    I have friend who lives by me where everything came in stabalized and she was classed as being in remission and is still fine now and as turned to herbel drugs to keep her steady refering for vitamins etc.

    Being reduced to 5mg is excellent news also, just a nice steady dose in your system and i hope you can catch up on sleep you've missed.

    Hugs Terri xxx
