So now I have pink eye but it is viral not bacterial. Is this common for us Lupies? WebMD says we are more likely to get it but this is my first time and hopefully the last.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but pink eye is extremely common among little kids. When my daughter was teaching pre-school, she dealt with it often.
The best that you can do is take good care of your own eyes and try to teach your little ones not to rub their eyes, especially after playing with others.
You can imagine how hard that is to do! It's all part of being a parent - we've shared pinkeye, lice and ringworm with our kids when they brought those things home, as well as the usual colds, flu and chicken pox. The things we do for the next generation - LOL!

I know Marla, but my kids don't have it. Must be my suppressed immune system, darn.
