Well, there was good news!!!!! YAY!
The doctor does NOT think hubby has Lupus. They did more extensive blood work and other testing to rule it out though. We should get the results back by next Tuesday at the latest.
This doctor was awesome. He also has twins and has had knee problems (just like hubby). MY husband really indentified with him on many levels. Hubby got some sample patches for his knee from the doctor, who thinks this might help the severe pain. He also found "a piece" of something loose coming from the knee cap, that has never been detected. This could be the problem. What an answer to prayer this could be.
Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers today (and always). We also got to spend a few hours together of quiet time (the kiddos were at preschool), it was so nice!
