Well, my white cell count is very high and lately I have been brusing with no injury. I currently have a 4 1/2 week old bruise that has barely begun to heal. My platelet count was fine and I am not anemic. So off to see another specialist. Add this to the kidney stuff and I am just one scared kitten. I really so do not need this right now. I am sure that everything will turn out fine but just the idea of seeing this doctor is scary. I got an appointment for the 4th. If it had been earlier in the day I could have gone on the 2nd but it was way too late for picking hubby up from work. I am getting sick of specialists. I also get to see a GI specialist next Tuesday to find out why Creon helped with all my digestive issues. I guess I will just relax and go with it. I mean what is the worst they can say? I am dying? What is that compared to a lupus diagnosis? Besides I have been told I was going to die before and I am still here death doesn't scare me.
