Had the test done and all came out well in the end haha!! Sorry, just a little yally humor there. Seriously though, the prep was no fun, (don't care to EVER drink Gatorade again) but the actual test was as good as it could be, I guess...the fact that I was knocked out helped that immensely! Just one small polyp, nothing to worry about, don't have to repeat it for three years. Raven and Mary..so nice of you to ask about helping my neighbors...there is a fund established atBank of America in their names, don't think I should put my name and address on the forum here, but I will e-mail you the info, ok? I will try and get that to each of you tomorrow.
Raven...my liver tests were really messed up...Ast was 260, and Alt was 62....that was when they re-tested after 2 weeks. Those tests came back normal, so my doc is watching mine close, too. They were thinking it was my body getting used to the enbrel...I was really nervous about it all..but the doc reassured me that it was her job to watch these things...and that she was good at her job. So...I'm trying to do just that. We have so many scary things going on, I'm really trying to relax as much as I can, and trust my doc. What else can we really do? Hugs to you dear...I know just how you feel.
Mary!! How exciting to have all of that going on with your kids...gosh I miss those days, I really do. All the activity and comings and going...so much better than the quiet and empty bedrooms. Ok...our house isn't exactly quiet..and there is a lot of activity here most of the time...but you know what I mean.
Our middle son had his 29th birthday Sunday, and all I could think of is "how on earth did this happen???" I swear he was just little a little while ago...made me so sad.
Sj..so glad things are finally improving for you! That's great that you can cut back on the pred..and especially that you feel good enough with the other meds to WANT to do it..big change from before isn't it? Gosh with everything going on here I forgot that I have to go back to the rhuemy next week..seems like I was just there.
Well need to hit the hay...was a long day, and I'm a bit tired. all of the kids are back tomorrow, plus the neighbors will be here working on the house. Hubby has one more day home..then I'm on my own...sure will miss him!
Hugs to everyone...hope everyone is well, so many haven't posted latey...I'm starting to worry again..
