I saw my nephrologist today.  She said my kidneys are completely in remission!!!  The lupus is still active,  but it is not affecting my kidneys at all!!!!!  Yes!  I'm so happy.  For those of you facing kidney issues.  Don't give up!  I have been end stage,  staring dialysis right in the face and have now improved to stage III renal disease!!!!!!!!!!!  Thank you all for your prayerful support.  Judy
