"Clinically quiescent" defined


Word of the Day | quiescent

quiescent •\kwī-ˈe-sənt, kwē-\• adjective

1. being quiet or still or inactive
2. marked by a state of tranquil repose
Johnny sent me this "Word of the Day" a few days back, knowing that this is the phrase I strive to hear at the end of each rheumatologist's appointment. This is and has been the status of my lupus activity: how sweet does "in a state of tranquil repose" sound? So rare to use words like that to describe a disease like lupus. Fingers crossed it will continue through the summer. Have a great weekend, and stay clear of too much sun!
