Hi all, got back yesterday, it was a pretty bad trip, for the most part I could'nt walk, due to joint pain. BUT I've just found out why
I was feeling so bad. The hospital called today, it seems I have full blown Lupus. Not such a good thing to hear, but at least it answers
a few questions for me!!!

Hope you've all been feeling pretty good....

Vicky - sorry for the new diagnosis but glad you know what it is. That is the first step to treatment! Glad you made it onto your trip even if you had a rough time.

Hey Vicky,
Finally found a few minutes to check in, had a devil of a time remebering my password. Sorry to hear about the Lupus diagnosis, I must read up on it so I know what its all about. Hope your trip wasn't too bad and you have a few fun times. I'll PM you later on.
hugs,
Tess. (Whose been up to her ears with a herd of Angora goats.)
