Not too sure how much I'll get to blogging this weekend. I'm wiped out. Thursday, my fever (I run one every evening, thanks to Mr. Lupus) isn't acting my normal. I wake up every day with a temp about 97.5º Somewhere around 3 pm every day, give or take a couple of hours, it rises to somewhere between 99.4º and 100.6º. Pretty typical of lupus. Thursday, it started at 9 am, and spiked all the way up to 102.3º. Friday, it was still over 101.5 when I woke up. (yes, called the doctor, told the nurse I've complained about a zillion times, no one ever called back) So, today, I went to after hours clinic. Symptoms are pleurisy ...mouth sores... joint swelling .... joint pain ....fever ... etc.... and CBC was normal, blood sugar normal Sed rate was all the way up to 75. Diagnosis ... lupus flare. Treatment ...already on maximum medications allowed ...go home, go to bed. So ...if I don't post anything for a day or two, it may mean that I am actually following orders! (imagine that!)
