      wow - talk about beating you while you're down!

      My ex-sister-in-law had lupus for a long time. She did end up getting a kidney transplant 20's, that helped her live a semi-normal life. Keep us posted on what they find out for sure.

      Lupus has been tossed around for me as well. They stopped pursuing that once the lymphoma came into the picture. Once this is resolved then they will take a look at the Lupus again...sigh. Either way...I'll beat it. You will too. :) If we have Lupus...we can manage it. We should be capable of dealing with Lupus better than ever after beating cancer,,,no? lol

      Is it a Rheumatolgist who suggests this? This probably the least of your worries at the moment, but it would be best to check with a specialist I think. They do a lot for Lupus patients these days, do try not to add more stress! Hang on!
