BTW, the EMG test on Mrs. GBC came out OK. Rules out neuromuscular reasons for lost muscle mass (which is great)
Connective tissue disorders or a long running internal fungal infection most likely the culprit.
That still doesn’t sound good. She’s too young to have to deal with that.
Sorry to hear Mrs. GBC isn’t feeling well...haven’t been on thread as much as usual...but sending prayer her (and your way) FRiend.
