Hi Jan,

   It sounds like you went through the ringer before you saw Dr Wallace....((Hugs)). I'm glad your husband took you to see him.

   Thank you for sharing your story with us. I'm glad to hear your son is doing so well. I wish you the best with your book. I think its great to hear stories from people who suffer with this disease so we can all relate to certain things. Let us know when it will be published so we can get a copy!

   You take care and keep us updated. You will be in my thoughts and prayers.

Hi Jan,

I'm waiting to get in to see Dr. Wallace. Well, chances are I won't get "him" but someone else in his practice. Its so good to hear you praise him. It gives me hope. I have the Lupus book and its awesome. There is stuff in his book that outright contradicts what a local Rheumatologist told me only two weeks ago. Its such a great book.
