Still normal

3 months running and the blood tests are still normal! Can I get a woo and a hoo, please? VERY exciting news.

It also seems odd to me. "Normal". The chemical results may read normal, but the physical components are anything but normal. The bending and the flexing of the major joints are working towards it. The yoga is really helping. The heat is helping.

The hands are far from normal. The crooked, curled fingers. The ulcered knuckles. The painful, scaly, peeling finger tips. The blue or purple lurking under the surface waiting for a Raynaud's episode if the temperature drops just a degree or two.

The issues you can't see. The lung issues. The funky heart thing.

Normal. Hmmmm, I guess its all relative, right? Even if the definition is skewed, its still a good thing to hear!

Normal? It is nice to hear!!! But then...

For the first six months of all this, my blood work was a most all in normal limits. But the physical symptoms screamingly obvious for diagnosis.

Now - like you said. Is this normal?
