Infection seems to be a bit more controlled right now…. second round of antibiotics, and I’m going to be needing a partial third round to get to the appt, otherwise it’ll just come back up in the meantime.

My jaw finally doesn’t have a golf ball attached though! I’ve seriously had a ton of inflammation, and have had to use different meds to get it down so it wouldn’t swell my throat shut. I’ve still got some inflammation, but not like I was having!

Ummmm…. IUD string cutting and check was today, things look awesome, my body is actually acting like it should with the IUD (as far as the ways it works as birth control) and I seem to be getting relief from the endo…. I can’t remember the last time I had this few cramps in a month… it’s been over 3 years ago….. I had a few months where my endo wasn’t bugging me after my last surgery (4 years ago), but I had to go back on birth control to help keep it from bugging me as much 3 1/2 years ago, and 3 years ago it got bad enough again that the doctor had me on continuous birth control, which worked well until my lupus took away that option…

My lupus is flaring, but it’s seeming to be a steady flare, not one that really has anything out of the ordinary, and since my lupus is constantly at some level of a flare, I’ll take the constant i’ve had lately…. especially since *gasp* I”m able to use stair cases, and I can walk more, and everything else! I think this is a combo of the psych drugs, the weather change, and just all around starting to feel a bit better from all that’s gone on…. things are leveling out physically and emotionally for me!

I think that’s all the updates I have…..
