Hi everyone. Was really sick over weekend and flew to winnepeg yesterday to see rhuemetologist. She has now comfirmed lupus raynauds sclerdoma crest and sojurns. I already knew this kind of but now it is official. She did a lot of tests and bloodwork and still more to do. She thinks she can help with prednisone if my liver test are okay. It has already shutdown twice and I was on liver transplant list so say a prayer for me that liver will be okay.Lost my glasses also in winnepeg. Duh!I also have pnuemonia and she thinks esophagus and lungs may be involved now. My poor dear Dallas is still with me but only because I can not make the 8 hour round trip to vets as I still feel terrible. Hugs to all. marilyn

I have always been weak and not able...
