Welcome to the family Little Red. Sorry you have lupus but you've come to a GREAT place for support, info and a gentle hug now and then.
Glad you got rid of the uncaring louse and found a great man. There are really few people that can handle their spouse being sick all the time. When you find the rare one it's a wonderful feeling. Thankfully, after therapy, my dh is great at dealing with this.
I've always wanted to go river tubing but now with lupus it's bound to stay on my wish list. By any chance are you close to Marshall TX? That's where I was born but was 3 months old when we left so never have seen it. Ok I'll shut up now, just really wanted to say hello and welcome.
