Hi all,

I'm off on holidays day after tomorrow :excited: I am going to give it my best shot, I don't feel so well but I will probably do less on holidays than at home - so take that Lupus :p

Saw my doc today and he has to do some more testing once I get back. Seems my red blood cells are being destroyed and it's not any of my drugs. If I am not folate deficient on the next round of bloods or B12 deficient then it's probably our good old friend Lupus doing it :mad: I was fine a few months ago on a B12 test. Bilirubin is high and a few other red cell abnormalities led to this conclusion. Geesh what next I say, don't you just get fed up with it!

Oh apparently I am past menopause too, who knew :hehe: I think it faded into insignificance compared to all the other stuff going on.

My costochondritis is having a field day so I am well stocked up on pain meds and packing my bag tomorrow.

Thyroid test ok so that's one positive :)

Onward and upward :yes: what else can we do! There's a chocolate factory tour on my agenda, so I will stock up and bring some back for us all :wink2:

love
Lily

Lily,

Sounds like everything is being dealt with by you doctor!

Enjoy your holiday and I will keep my fingers crossed that the costochondritis and any other symptoms behaves themselves!

Hi Lily,

I hope you have a fabulous time and that everything stays under control and pain free!

I hope too that when you come back your tests are OK - not much fun all that. As you say, sometimes you've just got to say "I'm going anyway!!" and go and have fun.

Have fun and think of us all back here with no choclate factories in sight :lol:

Hi Lily,

Don't even think about the tests while you are gone. You just have a great time and soak up all that beautiful scenery.

Take care,

Dear Lily,

I hope you have a wonderful time and enjoy every minute. The chocolate will totally help lol!

I can totally relate to you at the moment - I'm going through the menopause at 37, costochondritis is a constant pain and just found out my red blood cells are not playing either which came as a curved ball.

I'll be thinking of you as always and hope the further tests go well.

Hugz,

Pam xxx

Enjoy your vacation to the utmost, even if that means a lot more rest than usual. :) I've developed a keen ability to forget doctor appointments & health issues - or is that the lupus brain fog? Depends on how you look at it but I think you also have this finely tuned ability as well so I know you'll not worry about all these doctor things while on holiday! :)

I'll be here waiting for you to return with a hand reached out waiting to grab some chocolates... :)
