OMG...come to think of it, there was some very faint, far-off sounding panting. It probably was that little SOB alien finch. Carol, how in the world did that come to you. Ahhhh, you were in Norman mode....I just recalled your signature.

Seriously, I am interviewing (I like the sound of that, it makes me feel in charge of something since everything else is spinning off its axis) a potential new PCP on Wed. I will be showing her the damage or what is left of it. I did try to get a picture; now just have to print it and see how it looks. Maybe I'll enhance it to really make the finch look like a fiendish SOB!

Carol,
Yes, I do take meds: Plaquenil, keppra, topamax, verapamil, cellcept, effexorXR, levothyroxine, gabapentin, fish oil, multi vitamin with calcium, IVIg infusions--that stands for immuno globulin (if and when insurance approves them; we're appealing the first denial).

Des, discoid lesions actually did cross my mind. I don't think this thing is one though. Do I have any reason for saying that? No. Absolutely none. that's why I'm glad I'm going to see a doctor on Wed. And I'm hoping for no scar as well!

Emmi--
Sounds like it's time to get a cat. Sometimes I get that little blister thing, I think its acne. I hope its something simple like you accidently rugburned yourself in your sleep or something and a little neomycin or something is all you ever need. Good luck with the new doc.
Love, Marji

A cat! Why didn't I think of that. I will have to check with my dog on that. Hmmm, I could have dog/cat fights for entertainment if there's not enought excitement in my life!

I'm really hoping I like this new dr. I need a new PCP. And maybe she even recognizes alien/bird/rug/bug/blister/acne/discoid h*ll, it's probably imaginary spots. Just so she didn't get her degree from Uranus. That's still a planet, isn't it? Thanks, Marji!

You can find out by asking her if there is methane on uranus.
