Hi There,

I'm new to this forum. My niece (19) has SLE. She was at the hospital for 2 weeks because of kidney problem caused by SLE. I do not know much about SLE, and hopefully somebody would point me to resourceful websites on this topic.

Thanks!

Hey Bfoot,

Great to hear from you. It is nice to know that you are learning all you can to help her. So many times it is our closest family membors who do not know and seem not to care. It is refreshing to hear you.
