Hi Sparky Buddy! I wanted to let you know that I had my GI appt. and they took 8 vials of blood! My vein collapsed after 7 so they got the rest out of the other arm! She checked me all out and from what she could see and from what I told her, she told me not to worry, but for safety, wants me to have an ultrasound of my liver so that's scheduled for June 3rd, which is coming right up on Tuesday. So I'm hoping that everything will be ok and that I really don't have to worry! How are you doing in the GI dept.? Doing lots and lots better I hope! Hugs to you, Karen

I'm hoping that the L-lysine will help you and it has helped us. My dear MIL was the first one to introduce it to us. She was a great vitamins fan! Her last name was Gulbrandson, so we've always called it our Dr. Gulbrandson remedy and boy, can it ever work. I don't take it all the time, but when I feel a cold sore coming on, like I said. Let's kick those nasty buggers bye-bye! emoticon emoticon

Thanks Janny for caring about me. emoticon My appt. with the GI Spec. is on May 30th, so it's coming right up. I've been hurting more because of not being on Leflunomide now. Several fingers are swollen and painful. Oh well, we can get so used to pain, that it really doesn't make much difference. But we know deep down that it really does. I'm not too worried about it unless I really think about it. My DH tells me that it's best to get it checked out and to catch it sooner than later too, if something would need to be done. So I try to keep calm about it all. I do feel that I could still be toxic just because of a sign of a cold sore starting on my lips, with the itching at first! I take L-lysine thought and that seems to nip it in the bud, so I must not be too toxic. Thanks again and I hope that you're having a good day. I am as far as diet anyway. emoticon emoticon

Thanks for thinking of me, but I have to tell you that the tests did not come back good, so I'm waiting for the GI Spec. to give me a call with an appt. Thanks for telling me that you've been through it, because that helps me somewhat. I tend to get all worked up over things like this and have a good cry or two, so I appreciate your support. I'll let you know how it goes. My DH and DS half joke with me when they tell me that I take too many supplements, that my liver can't work fast enough!! Who knows, maybe?? I've read online that those with a slow metabolism can have more trouble. Hmm, so we'll see. Oh, speaking of metabolism, my MD just called after my thyroid blood test yesterday and my TSH has decreased, so I will get less dose of med. prescribed! And 2 months ago it was less than the time before, so that's looking somewhat better! How are you feeling?? Hugs to you, Karen
