and thank you Barb and Pat for posting for me. I'm just giving a quick update. I gained a ton of weight again. I have to live with CHF for ever now. I have nurse coming out to check my vitals and stuff two days a week. I was taken off of 2 meds BP meds and left one but I have  to take twice as much if I gain more then 3 lbs.
  I don't know how you guys are doing but to tell ya the truth I feel like I have to put tooth picks in my eyes to keep from falling asleep. I remember when the question of Lupus started coming up I was really tired a lot. All I can say now is Wow I'm falling asleep every time I try to type this I nod out. lol. Dr said I can't do anything for 2 weeks. no lifting or raising anything up to my head.
well I am having a terrible time trying to keep my thoughts together so I think I'm going to try to get some more sleep.
Ok I'll probaby just sleep my life away for now.
love 2 all
Lupus lung, maybe, scleraderma maybe, another A/I maybe, Hang nail maybe. COPD
meds to many to fit in my 10 lines. but last count was 28.

 Jesus loves you and so do I!

Carol I'm so glad that you're home again and that you have a nurse coming in to check on you! Maybe being sleepy is a blessing in disguise because it will help you obey doctor's orders not to do anything for two weeks? :)
