Hey everyone ...
Getting a later start on my blog writing than I had anticipated. Weekend in Jersey was a good one. It was nice to have a change of scenery and see some family. Saw Enchanted, which is very cute. Got to eat at Friendly's, which is my favorite place to get ice cream. And I saw a bunch of wild turkeys roaming the streets of Jersey. Who knew?
Let's jump into some lupus news.

What that means is Dr. Hahn will be taking any and all questions about lupus, as long as they're not patient-specific. If you'd like to submit a question in advance, you can do so here.
You can read the March 2008 transcript about kidneys and lupus here.

Lupus Blog Spotlight
Finally, I would like to turn your attention to another lupus blog. It is called Lupus Christian Support.
The blogger is Given55. She is a Christian counselor and an ordained minister. She also has lupus. She created the blog to provide support for others who have also been diagnosed with lupus.
I know some of you already have ... but if you get a moment, swing by Lupus Christian Support and say hi to Given55.
Until next time, Wick
