My question would have been, "So, what's my prognosis doctor?"
There are so many other questions regarding bizzare and wacky symptoms that go unasked for fear of sounding like a hypochondriac.
I am going to the doctor today (for flu shot) and the question I won't ask is , "What is with the bump under my toes?" He'd probably say, "Get the rock out of your shoe"
(Is it not cool to smiley-laugh at your own jokes?)

My doctor seems to not care about my total skin involvement and is on a wait and see protocol. My lungs, heart and kidneys are mildly involved, and they haven't gotten worse. So in his opinion that's what's important, not the skin.

I'm amazed when they throw a number out there like 8, 12, etc. You know it's not true. My general practitioner admits, "I'm no expert on this", but somehow I see him sitting at the computer late at night researching. I feel this, because he has taken a different approach, is totally hands on, and is starting to vocally express his opinion of the rheumatologist's stance on all of this. On Wednesday, I'm going to a rheumatologist of his suggestion and I have called a wound care center to make a visit for a second opinion. I'm starting to get angry, which makes me pro active to take steps for myself in order to heal. My sons may have deserted me, but I'm gonna fool them too and get better to the best of my ability with or without them.
It is what it is...........
