Babs - Thanks - I could shoot myself - I meant to say Sjogren's NOT Scleroderma. Sorry about that Audrey Ann. Yeah, yeah .. that's the one. Gotta love dementia :) Ah, guess it happens to us all.
The soreness does concern me, does the eye doctor know about this one? You may want to say something as inflammation can be painful (not always severe unless you have vision changes), perhaps something mild but he should know in case it is infected or something.
Again sorry for that. Take care and let us know how it goes - Kristin
