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

Today I went to see the Family Dr and the Rheumatologist. The family Dr took 3 tubes of blood to check my blood count, a metabolic profile, TSH, and A1C. My BP was 140/98, so he was concerned and talked about upping my meds. After some errands and a meal, I went to the rheumy who was concerned that my BP was too low. It was 103/70. You see, my meds had finally kicked it! Anyway, he took my hair...
