I had my follow up appointment with my autoimmune doctor. Things seem to be okay. I had many questions for her. One was if a person with autoimmune disorder should get a flu shot. So for any of you out there who have autoimmune, do you get a flu shot? My doctor told me that they do recommend them unless you have Lupus. She also sent me a bunch of information and will read and make a decision. I also asked about Hormone replacement therapy which I was on prior to being diagnosed with autoimmune but stopped thinking they might be causing my problems. My doctor also told me that HRT would be okay. I will think about that as well. Any information appreciated.
Now for FIL...disappointed that he was told by the urologist that he needs to have the catheter for another week. the good news though is that we were told my the head nurse that she can fit him with a bag that goes around his leg so that he can wear pants and possible get out and about. We will check on that today. Still a little confused as to why he needs to be on the catheter so long but something about the bladder repairing itself or something. He did have a bad bladder infection. We will check on him again today to see if he is able to get out and about. We are hoping he is independent again before we leave town on Wednesday.
Looking forward to my facial today.
Have a terrific day!
