It gives me some degree of hope to know that a lot of what I'm feeling is a result of ongoing processes as opposed to permanent damage. When my immune system takes a break from attacking my body I feel remarkably "normal."
For now, I'm going to enjoy this gorgeous weather and soak up every ounce of warmth and energy that the sun wants to send my way. Monday I've got another Dr. appointment where I hope to get the all clear from my chest CT - there's absolutely no reason to expect any other finding. With that out of the way we'll be lining up cardiology, GI and derm consults/tests to get baselines, check a few things and for me to get some guidance on what some of my symptoms mean and what sorts of changes I should be expecting.
