sad  I'm so worried about my daughter. She started feeling bad a couple of weeks ago symptoms were high fever for three days then she broke out into a rash and swollen joints with pain in all her joints. She went to the dr. last saturday and they drew 5 tubes of blood.So yesterday the dr. office calls and tells her she needs to come back in they didn't draw enough blood to do her sed rate.The blood test as of yesterday show her having elevated liver enzymes and her hep test came back abnormal. Please keep her in your prayers that this won't be serious as i already know what hep c can do to the body my hubby has hep c. Ok so i'm rambling now i'm just very worried.

Thanks guys, for the hugs and prayers. My daughter went back to the dr. yesterday they drew more blood to run a hep panel on her. We should hear something on it next week. In the meantime she finished the medrol pack and she experincing extrem fatigue and crampy muscles. I told her to call the dr. back and tell them her symptoms and ask for more steroids they did seem to help while she was on them. So for now it's a waiting thing as we all know to well. (((((hugs))))

Prayers and hugs for you and family. Please keep us up to date and I know your going to laugh but , try not to worry yourself into being sick. She needs you now and may after they find whats wrong so being ill is not an option. Yes I know easier said than done...
If we would read the secret history of our enemies,we would find in each mans life sorrow and suffering enough to disarm all hostility.

Hi Kay,
Just thought I would let you know that I'm thinking about you and your daughter and I hope you get some good news this week.  I hope you are feeling better, and that the worrying doesn't put you in a flare.  Take care, and I hope to see you in the chat room.
Love Julia

Hi Kay:

I know I found out about Jennifer last week while I was in the hospital, I'd like to say I'm sorry for getting this post to you so late. I'm sorry to hear that Jennifer is feeling so bad. I know being her mother, you're gonna naturally worry about her. All I can say, try not to work yourself up a lot it may make your flare up to be worse than you expected. Please know Kay that you, Jennifer's family is in my prayers and I truly hope the results are good ones.

I know you've been having a tough time, I think of you often and pray for you every night when I go to bed. Try to hang in there and you know you can call me at anytime day or night. Please CALL me if you need me, my friend you're like a sister to mean and i want to be there for you.

Love and hugs,

Love and prayers to all of you. I know telling you not to worry is redundant... when it comes to our children our middle names are "worry".... I hope you feel some respite from all this worry during this week of waiting and I hope Jen is feeling better soon.
Please let us know... Big hugs and prayers for a quick answer and relief from worry and pain....
