I've heard it can attack any organ at anytime.

Hi Robyn,
   I have lung involvement with Lupus. I'm getting over pneumonia and a partial collapsed lung right now. In 2005, I had Lupus Pneumonitis. 
   I hope your appointment goes well tomorrow. Let us know how it goes. Take care. You will be in my thoughts and prayers.
