World Lupus Awareness Day/ Avise test results

Today is Lupus Awareness Day.  I wore my Lupus Fighter T-Shirt, got my toenails painted purple and got the results of my Avise test results.  I positively for sure have Lupus. It took 2 weeks to get the results.  I am not a patient person as I have probably mentioned more than once in my blog. I am sure my Rheumy was so happy to get the results...even though I thought we knew I had it she felt like she wanted  to test me because I just did not seem to feel much better no matter what she did or what meds I was taking.  We decided to continue all meds but one.  Put me back on Cymbalta and rest up for my knee surgery.  More info on that when I see my Ortho on the 21st.

Knee Replacement

Well my Orthopedic Doc says I have to have a knee replacement. He gave me info to read and I have to get all the Pre-op stuff done then see him again on the 21st for the surgery date....I imagine it will be the 1st of June. He won't know for sure if its partial or full replacement untill he gets in there but he said be prepaired for full replacement......
