Hello's been a really rough few days! My mom is in the hospital w Viral Meningitis (Encephalitis) - swelling of the brain from some odd & rare virus! She is not cognitive or verbal at all, which is scaring me to death! But they at least figured out what was wrong & all we can do is "Move Forward " & hope she makes it & doesn't have permanent brain damage! Please keep her in your prayers! I guess there are things worse than Lupus... sad

Thinking of you and your mother!

Think of my father he's due for a heart cath on Friday, but had some mild angina tonight. I might be running to the hospital tonight with him.

Angelina, so sorry to hear about your mother. I hope, and pray, that she makes a full recovery.

Joy, adding your father to my list too.
