Still feeling like crap sick

I don't have any more news....just that I am still not feeling good. But I think 'good' is probably an understatement....I haven't felt good in over a week, maybe longer.

We are back at our house after spending almost a full week at my mom's. Except for Henry who is on Spring Break this week and will probably stay with her for a few more days. For some reason two kids seem to be much easier to handle than three right now!

I haven't heard back from the doctor about all the blood work, but the longer this continues the more I know that there is something seriously wrong.

I have been on a new kind of steroid {my third round in the last three months} since April 2nd and I am only doing a little better than when I started out!

I honestly wish I could go back in time about a week and a half to when we thought it was just carpal tunnel! A simple surgery and all would be better.

Instead, I sit here day after day waiting for the news that I have some incurable autoimmune disease that I will have to live with forever.

I know that people can live normal lives with these kinds of diseases, but no one wants to be sick for the rest of their life!

Not knowing when I will feel good and when I will feel bad.

How do you make plans, when at any moment you could feel like crap be sick again?
********************

I think the worst part right now is that I can't sleep well. I am in pain....a pain that moves from place to place.

Saturday night it was my left knee and my left elbow

Sunday it was both knees and my left pointer finger {you would be surprised how much one little finger can hurt!!}

Last night it was my right knee and my left wrist

And really, it is the not knowing {and the waiting} that is sort of driving me crazy!

I really think if I knew what was wrong, I would start feeling a little better. Maybe if I knew for sure what it was, then I could try to do something about it!

********************
I feel like I have missed so much in blog land over the last week and a half!! And I have few fun things to post about when I am back to feeling better....hopefully soon!

Sorry for such a depressing post!

In the meantime, if you could say a prayer for me and my family I would really appreciate it!

We all hope you feel better soon!! Your glass is really half empty these days-it might not be anything terrible!! We will keep praying that it is not!! I guess it's easy to get discouraged when you're in pain. Know that we are praying for you.

Praying for you, Kelli. I opened this post thinking you had a simple cold or something. I had no idea you hurt this bad.
Have you contacted your doctor about the bloodwork? My dr usually gets labwork back within a few days, but almost always forgets to call me with the results. :(

Kelli, I'm SO sorry that you are still not feeling well. I know how anxious you must feel waiting on test results. Just know that you are in our prayers. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help!

I really hate knowing that you are feeling so bad. I am praying for you, Jason and the boys. Please let me know if I can do anything to help. I can only imagine that the long wait for an answer is very nerve wracking.

Kelli, So sorry that you're still sick...and worse that you're unsure of what's causing it and how to treat it best! I'm praying for you and hopeful that you get answers soon! It's frustrating to feel sick and to feel so out of the loop with the rest of the world! {hugs}
