Here it is in a nut shell.  My freind just had cancer surgery and now has Mercer. I was not told this and I have Lupus they know how I feel about my illness and being around people who are sick. I have open skin due to the lupusand was over at there house. Should I be concerned or not.
 
  Please help
Lupus since 2005, Fiberomyalgia since 2006,  sjogren's syndrome since 2005,  diabetes since 2006, Depression since 2004. who would not be with all of this.
 
       I just try to make it threw every day as best I can.
        God please remember I am on the diet platter.
                  So many beads so little time.....
 
                   Have a great Lupie Day Denise

Hi tink:

1) Call your rheumy and ask for his/her input. "If" there is any chance of early intervention, they should know.

2) Are you on any immuno-suppressants? This would double statement number 1)

3) If you are not on immuno-suppressants . . . you may be more resistant than the average person (who has open skin sad )

4) Your diabetes will likely make it even more important for you to follow step 1)

I hope you will keep us posted. *sigh* Take a deep breath . . . I know this is probably scary . . . but our emotions seem to drain us more than physical issues.

Blessings!

Great Tink . . . . I didn't realize they could do blood work for MRSA. I hope you'll keep us posted.

Blessings!

I guess it is just to keep a eye on every thing if there is something wrong somewhere this way they can keep a eye on things...???
