Navydad . . . glad to read your post and know that you are in the hands of the wonderful people at Mayo Clinic for the next several days.

The people at Mayo might be happy to have a male "specimen" with Sjogren's - since, as you know, the vast majority of people with Sjogren's are female.  Believe it or not, we are wired differently.  LOL   ::)  I do hope that you can be as descriptive as you can be when you describe the aches and pains you have been dealing with.   Guys tend to downplay their pain.  Although, from reading your posts these past few years, I think you will do just fine letting them know how it feels.   ;)

Do try and get out and see some of MN while you are there.  Just a word of caution . . . Minnesota's state bird is the mosquito!!   :o   ::)

Keep us updated when you get a chance.  Wishing you all the best.

  Navy Dad, so pleased to read your post today,

                    It sounds a great place to be when one is so sick.

                     Your post sounded more positive today, and I'll be praying that you will be more so as the days go on.

                       Lovely to hear that your dear wife managed to get away with you too.

                       All  of us here are with you in spirit and prayers  each day.     Bless you, Dolly

navydad, I just got back on line after another computer glitch. I am thrilled that you got to go to Mayos. If nothing else the trip was a good get a way for you and your wife.

I am like all the rest here. Praying and waiting for some news from you and hopefully a chance for some treatment to help you feel better. Irish ;D

P.S. I live in Minnesota not far from Mayos and it is beautiful country---and yes, it can get cold here!!!! But you should have seen how cold it got back in the late 70's-early 80's. This is wimpy weather these past winters.

Dearest Navydad,

Log on every morning, thinking of you and hoping for some news from you.

This is so exhausting for you...................

We are all in your corner, and prayers and love go out to you from all sides.

We start our trip East today, but there is supposed to be wireless at every hotel, so I'll be looking for news every day.

All love and kisses,

I'm glad they are treating you well. I am so looking forward to hearing your results. Crossing my fingers. Stay warm.
I miss the good old days. Things were more like they used to be back then.
