I just wanted to let you know that our other moderator, Amy (aimsgirl16) , had her first dialysis today. She's been fighting with her kidneys most of the year and they just haven't been cooperating, so this is what it has come to. I believe she is also on the kidney transplant list, so if you have non-luppie friends who'd like to donate, sign them up! (I believe blood type B is required.)
There isn't a clear reason why her Lupus choose her kidneys, but it is a good reminder for us all to due our best to eat decently and drink lots of water! Not only can Lupus decide to attack our kidneys, but our medications are not kind to them and we need the water to keep liver & kidneys healthy!
Send healing energy, good thoughts and prayers to Amy!
