James, you have been and always will be a warrior! And you know you are in the hearts and the prayers of everyone here. Take that strength you have shared with all of us so often, and focus it on winning this battle with lupus! You are surrounded by so many people and animals who love you, let that love be a warm and healing balm for your body and your soul. You can come through this - I believe you will.
Hugs, and many prayers - for you and your beautiful wife.
