So Here We Are

So here we are, nearly a week after the Mayo consultation. I’m still trying to digest and process all the information I was given there and I still don’t know what to make of it all. I met with my primary care doctor yesterday to get the referral I need for the ear-nose-throat specialist as well as the referral to the immunologist. I asked her what she made of the tests saying that there was no autoimmune disease and she said that it is possible that the medication could make the numbers normal. I realize it is just as likely that I am healed of what ever has been making me sick, but I have to go to the lab tonight for yet another full blood workup before my appointment with the rheumatologist next week. It will be some time before we really have any new information, since the next part of the process is to get off of the steroids.

In the mean time, I’m trying to get back to riding my bike on the stationary trainer each day as well as adjusting to our kindergartener’s new schedule. I know the next few months will be difficult, but I feel that we’ve come to a pivotal point in my diagnosis and treatment, and I am greatly hoping for a return to normalcy soon.

Thank you all for your prayers and encouragement, and please, keep them coming.

What a roller coaster ride you have been on, you and Kayla continue to amaze me, you have handled all of this with Gods Grace, he is so proud of you!
