sorry . . . I haven't been on-line much lately. Computer problems.
Thanks for your prayers sis . . . it means so much to me. You are sooo sweet!
Yes . . . UCTD and MCTD are related. Mixed means that one has more than two connective tissue diseases (like lupus, scleroderma and RA). UCTD means that you have manifestations of these diseases but the doc can't pin-point which one(s) you have. These issues are all auto-immune (meaning the body attacks itself).
You poor thing . . . sorry you are still in so much pain. Please tell me about it sis.
We (one brother and I) got mom to take a three day visit to her home-town (a 6 hour drive). One of my sisters drove with her. Brother and I took turns staying with dad. He did very well and mom had a very nice time away. It seems to have been good for her.
