I'm back

It's a shock I know. But I think it's time to start keeping track of all that is going on in my Lupus world. I sure have missed having a place to dump it all and recent comments made me realize that people are actually reading this!

The remainder of this year was ok. I had some severe flairs and one that lasted several weeks. I am getting better at managing them, but sometimes the pain is just so unbearable. I also decided to help out with the Seattle Lupus Walk in October and had such a great time I decided to sit on the committee again. It was so awesome to see our ideas and hard work become a huge success.

In November I suffered a BAD flair with massive chest pains. It was to the point that I couldn't move. My Lupus Dr. decided to try a new medication with me, one that isn't treated for Lupus. After being on it for 4 weeks I was amazed at how I felt. We then tried to push the expensive ($2,000 a month) drug through my insurance and with a huge praise they paid it! God is so great!
I have been on it 6 weeks and it still seems to be working GREAT with little side effects. My Dr. thinks that by the time we go to Disneyworld at the end of the month I should be 110% better and wont need any assistance while I'm there (wheelchair) which makes me even MORE excited!!! WOO!

So that was the rest of my year. I hope to keep this blog up from now on.
