She was happy with how hubby was doing and ran some blood work. We will get a slip in the mail with comments.
For me, she thinks the arthritis flare is the excessive fluids in my tissues right now. She is displeased about my blood pressure too. She had pre-eclampsia with her babies and so she knows pretty much what to expect for me. She did want me back home and in bed as fast as possible. I am to return in 4 months, but if after the baby and at least 6 weeks post-delivery I am still having arthritis problems then I am to call and come in early.
Our appointment is on our anniversery, hubby has that day off.
I guess no new developments is good, but she did say if in 4 months hubby wasn't doing any better than now we would have to explore changing his anti-inflammatory, his hands still swell but no where near as bad as before plaquenil. So we will see.

Its great to hear that you had a positive Dr. appointment . . . *phew* I hope things go well for you in the next few weeks . . . a nice quiet wait for the safe arrival of your little one.
