So far the Prednisone and Hydroxychloroquine seems to be helping a bit…

After finding out that my blood tests came back showing that I have SLE (Lupas) my doctor prescribed a routine of Prednisone and Hydroxychloroquine (aka – Plaquenil). I’ve been on them now for a couple of weeks and I have noticed a decrease in the debilitating pain that I was feeling. I still have shooting pains in random places at random times but they don’t seem to get any worse than just shooting pains. I don’t know if it is the medication or that fact that I also quit my job and started working for a company that I used to work for before the downturn in the economy. This company has probably been the best medicine of all. When you are appreciated and welcomed back with lots of love it has a way of making you feel good. No doubt about it! Next appointment with my doc is next week. We shall see the results of additional blood tests and other tests. Until then…hanging in there!

About Moqqi

I was born in the Midwest but I have actually lived more of my life on the West Coast. I am looking forward to that day when I once again am living in the Midwest. Hopefully that will mean that I am retired and getting to live life at a bit of a slower pace! I've been married to the same guy for 36 years! We met when he was working for a semi-pro hockey team and I was selling tickets to the games. He also played hockey at an amateur and college level and I think I fell instantly in love when we went ice skating together and he saved me from crashing when someone behind me fell (I was skating backwards, he was skating forward, so we were facing each other.) and he reached out with his big, strong arms and grabbed both of my upper arms and just stopped me dead in my tracks to make sure I didn't fall over the person. My Hercules! I have two children, a son and a daughter. My son is an Registered Nurse and works in an ICU. He is married to a wonderful girl that I couldn't have hand picked better. They have produced the absolute, most cute and adorable Grandchildren that anyone could ask for! My daughter is now a Fifth Grade teacher. She has a joy and passion for teaching and loving her students that is not seen in many teachers these days. She truly found her calling. I have this blog because I thought it would be nice to have a place that I could share what is going on in our lives and I also just love to tell stories. I'm not a writer per se, but I do love a good story. Even if it's just a short little quip!
