    Book Reviews

    I love to read and review books and have a very broad range of genre interests. Reading and reviewing Advanced Review Copies is also something that I greatly enjoy and am always more than happy to do. I express my opinions openly and love to share the great new books and authors that I come across. I am more than thrilled to do reviews for any author and/or publisher.

My appointment with the Rheumatologist:

Yesterday I went to get the results from my Rheumatologist, and the test he did to see what stage of Lupus I have came back 1 positive and the rest negative. Which means that I have a slight case of Lupus, I am highly anemic, my thyroid level was low but not bad. But the 24 hour urine test for proteins came back as high proteins, not dangerously high to put into hospital. He put me on another medication with the others to treat the conditions of Lupus, Scleroderma and see if will stop the leakage in my kidneys. I will have to be monitored by doing future urine test, but for now I have to see him in 2 weeks to see if the medication is working. He did not want to send me to a kidney doctor to have a biopsy done yet, before the medication start to work. But he did mention if my primary care doctor wants to send me to a kidney doctor, it’s up to her.

The upside of everything is that I starting eating more since I am taking the steroids, my skin feels softer although I feel like I am always running a marathon. Now I know I have 3 auto-immune diseases and its a matter of treatment, control and adapting to my new life.
