Biopsy Results

I just spoke with the ENT nurse.  The test results were positive.  It is Sjögren's.  Like I told Steve, we kind of knew it was going to's just now we know for sure.
They have found some success with the drug, Plaquenil.  It doesn't arrest the syndrome, but it does slow it down...with few side effects.  Dr. Small had advised me earlier that this is probably the route we would go if the results were positive.
They have moved my appointment up from Thursday to Monday.  I should know more then.
