Default Hello - I'm back & so out of touch!

Oh it is good to be back on-line. Have been ill since just before Easter. Being a nurse I just passed it off as "just a little virus". But the fevers kept coming every couple of nites & then nightly, followed by increased joint pains, a head to toe body rash & then the fingers & toes turned dusky & couldn't bend them. Got tested from everything under the sun including Lymes & Scleraderma. Finally to Lupus was "inconclusive". The fatigue has been tremendous & didn't feel like being on the computer or anything. Finally this past week have come around to feeling better. Did some scrapbooking with my daughter on Saturday & planted some flowers in the old wagon today (woo hoo! progress!) Rollerdonna - so so glad that you are feeling better now. CruisinKandJ - I missed what happened to your grandson but sounds like he is making a good turn after 1 week. I MISSED EVERYONE!!! Mark is OOT in Texas on business this week so I'm a loner this week but back at work so I will stay busy. He just called from Denver airport & there is a screaming kid next to him that he says he hopes is not sitting next to him on the plane on his way to Houston! Glad I'm home.

Deb, welcome back. Whatever was wrong? Was it ChronicFatigue Syndrome? Whatever, it sounds awful.

Yes, my grandson suffered serious burns when he tried to lift a pot of boiling water off of the stove and was scalded down his chest and legs. He's slowly recovering, but his doctors have said that he must stay out of the sun for the next year, a tall order for a Southern California-born boy.

Again, welcome back to the board!

J.

Glad you're feeling better, Deb. Welcome back!

What you describe sounds very similar to some symptoms I showed a few years ago.
It turned out to be viral meningitis. I think it took a spinal tap to confirm it.

Glad you're feeling better, Deb. That's an awful long time to feel sick, and still not know exactly what was wrong. But you're back and posting is all that matters. Are you and RollerDonna long lost twins? Everybody's just got to get better, and NOW!

Welcome back. We hate it when sickness is the reason for not being on the computer. Take care.

Michelle - you're right - I need a cruise just to rest some more! I am feeling a lot better. Seahunks - did'nt get the spinal tap (nurses are afraid of all of that!), not meningitis but the doc thinks it was a weird virus that just got a good hold & went rampant through each of my systems. Yeah! me & Rollerdonna are twins - but hey! we are better now! Thanks Donna for booting off that bad post - makes me mad but then again I have to laugh - they always say things like they don't care & rude remarks but then I wonder - why are they reading if not interested!? CruisinKandJ - I'm DEFINATELY keeping your little guy in my prayers.
