Just wanted to touch base and fill you in. Things have been hard but we are hanging in.

I had 5 kidney surgeries before a total kidney reconstruction instead of removal. I am now having more problems and it worse than before surgery. I have been having strokes in my left eye and getting an injection in it every 4 weeks. It is much better. I am so thankful for that. I do have Glaucoma.

My pain is very severe. A couple of days ago my pain was so bad that I couldn't wear earrings because my earlobes hurt. :crazy

I am taking Benlysta infusions for the Lupus. I have been on Prednisone off and on but nothing in particular for the AS or RA. Just trying to take care of pain. I am not a candidate for the extensive surgery it would take.

My husband's RA is pretty severe also. He hasn't been able to do much at home for a couple of years and I got to where I just couldn't handle it either. We downsized to a nice apt. in an independent living facility and no longer have to worry about what the earthquakes are doing to the foundation or whether the storms are going to destroy every thing and I don't have to look for a handy man. I just call maintenance! grin2

They clean it weekly and have good restaurant type dining. All utilities including cable and Wi-Fi are included so the stress; physically and mentally is much lessened

We have a beautiful little great grand daughter so that makes two Greats! and they live only a couple of miles away.

Well, that it what is going on with me. I hope to be checking in more and catch up with each of you dear friends
Love to you all.

Kidneys are a touchy thing. I hope you get feeling better- I went in for a Kidney biopsy a few weeks ago. Biopsy was negative. but what should have been a 3 to 4 hour stay ended up being 5 days in the Hospital. Hit a major artery and almost bled to death. After several cat scans and two Angigrams. the bleeding was stoped. 15 hrs of transfusions. No fun good news is I kept the Kidney. Almost back to normal now. I wish you and your husband the best.

Thanks. That is terrible about your kidney. I am glad you are doing better. Makes me dread another procedure!
Good to talk to you.
