Good morning! I just wanted to tell you that I posted a link to the APS page in the thread that you started. Many people with Lupus also have APS and sometimes APS is a disease of its own. It does cause clotting issues and therefore embolisms. Hope this information helps when you go to the doctor
I was thinking, federico sounds either spanish or italian. I know a spanish teacher who could help translate if you need to say something that you can't express in english - although you did fantastic. as for italian that would take sometime to find someone. My father speaks it but I don't know if he can read it. I also speak french, if that's a help.
we will be here for you with advice and comfort.
