She still remains so beautiful even though so sick (which I realize is not that important in the total scheme of things, but it is just an observation)....Poor dear. I wish her the best and wonder if she has looked into holistic approaches to lupus.? Drugs get ya nowhere and there are MANY natural things that can at least help. Have seem it personally with a friend...tumeric, ginger, special diet for starters.
