Just checking in. I started using this discussion group when I was first diagnosed 8 or 9 years ago. My mother also has Lupus, and this is a wonderful resource.

It's been awhile, but I had back surgery in March. The first few weeks I did fine. But, with docs okay and some restrictions like I went to visit my daughter, my grandson, and my son-in-law a marine, for 2 weeks.
I had the greatest time, spent nearly every minute with my grandson who is now 17 months old. He and my daughter lived with us for 7 months, while Daddy was deployed.

Anyway, needless to say i wrecked my new back, but it was worth it. Had no pain while there, but after, I am having a lot of pain. i see surgeon soon and the x-ray will hopefully show no damage. It feels more like muscle pain.

But my Lupus is fairly quiet, I've been getting good sleep, and that always helps.

How is everyone here these days?

Hey Squirmy!! Glad to see you back!!! I wish more of the old lupies would return...so many left after the last "improvement" WebMd made.

I hope it's just a muscle pull with your back and that a little rest is all you need to get better.

Please hang around and post - this board is in desperate need for the oldies to return!!

Lisa
