Thanks for the information. I have come to realize that the sun is no longer my friend. Though it has been a short time, I already miss teh warm sunshine and the outdoors. I appreciate your tips. Maybe I can get back outside.
Thanks for the info saysusie......
Thanks this is so helpful since, I leave today for vacation.
Thank you! This is my first official summer with lupus. Info was extremely helpful!
Oh what a great blog.Thanks for the info Saysusie!! Hope you enjoy your summer.We just got rain and winds at the mo....last year didnt really have a summer so hope this year is a good one.
You're welcome, Saysusie....
In so many ways you've been my strength to overcome the deficits Lupus can bring. With your words, your love I have learned to battle them one by one and more times than not I have won.
You've helped me to realize having Lupus ain't so bad...thank you too.
saysusie this story really touched me. its nice to see that lauri didn't want to let lupus get her down and that she was determinded to complete her goals in life.
she was a strong girl and i really admire that. and i admire you for being there for her the whole time !
Both of you are so beautiful in this picture. You look a lot alike. Thanks for sharing it with us.
You are so right TobyJug!!
Thank You for appreciating Lauri's Story BadFlareDay!
Thank you for sharing this story.
spending time with people creates lifelong memories.....
never let them slip away....
I am sorry to hear that you also suffer from Pulmonary Hypertension as well as issues with your heart. Treatment for these conditions have come a long way since Lauri's struggle. So, the prognosis for these conditions are much more encouraging. Make sure that you take your meds as prescribed, take very good care of yourself and always pay attention to what your body is telling you!
Thank you so much for your very sweet comments!
Peace and Blessings
I knew that you were familiar with Lauri's story. Thank you for your sweet and kind words. It has taken some time for me to finally post her bio....but I'm glad that I did.
This touched me so much. We like to think of lupus as something we deal with everyday. And all the struggles we go though daily. Sometime we fail to see how serious Lupus can be!!! How hard it is own others that are close to us.
It also moved me deep inside because I have Pulmonary Hypertion and Heart Problems also!!!
I've read Lauri's biography many times, and it never fails to have a profound effect on me. In your words I hear terrible sadness, but I also see pride, and an everlasting love that knows no bounds. A love Lupus cannot take away, ever.
Thank You Oluwa and Angel Oliver. Time has not made the loss of Lauri any easier. It has made me find more reasons to smile at the thought of her; rather than cry at the loss of her.
Thank you both for all that you do here at WHL and for giving so much of yourselves to help other members here!
Oluwa..You are my heart and my strength! You don't know how much you mean to me.
Angel..You are amazing to me, I admire your strength, your resolve and your kindness!!
Much Love To You Both
