hi kelly, i'm actually in the same boat that lori is in, i had a kidney transplant in april '06 and before that i was diagnosed with lupus nephritis in '95 when i was 13. i agree with lori, your labs arent too bad, i was in remission for about four years and my creatinine stayed at about 1.3- 1.5 and i didnt have any problems until i flared in '03. however, my lupus came back last month and is now attacking my new kidney, so the docs are pumping me full of prednisone and more anti-rejections, hopefully that can get rid of it and save my kidney, feel free to email me, my email address is on my profile, if you need to chat.
Hugs and prayers,
diagnosed in May '95 with lupus, nephritis, hypertension,hypothyroidism, avascular necrosis (knee) '98, kidney transplant April '06, pseudo-cerebral tumor '07
