Oh, I am so sorry about
your father. You must have so many emotions now that I can't imagine having to do with lupus symptoms at the same time. The sooner you can get in to see a rheumatologist, the better. Of all the people who suffer, you need help with your symptoms so you can better manage the grieving process. My thoughts and prayers to your family.
