Erin, thank you for your kind words. I'm so sorry you lost your mom at such a young age. That must be very, very hard. Lupus is usually treatable these days, but sometimes it still steals from us those we love. My heart goes out to you, and my prayers. Please visit us often - there are many here who will understand how you feel and can provide some support and a place to talk about your mom. Glad you found us, Erin.
