One of my cousins has lupus @MoodyBlues. She's older than me and still living AFAIK. Long story...
I'm interested if you're inclined to share.
My aunt died, with no warning, at 48. My uncle, a physician, came home and found her just outside one set of patio doors, with shopping bags scattered around. Even though he KNEW she was dead, he couldn't accept it and tried to resuscitate her, after calling 911. The paramedics came and immediately concluded what he already knew.
She had lupus, and severe asthma, but no one was prepared for her death.
Her daughter--my cousin and best friend--shared her birthday, May 9. So every birthday since then has been bittersweet.
OT: Beat throat cancer, had puemonia a few times, got all the super ugly stuff out of the way when I was younger, in today's world just small feavers and sniffles
I am good doc
I hear you! I'm glad you're doing well now.
I had my first brush with death at 21; ended up needing a hysterectomy the next year. I thought, that's it, nothing worse will ever happen. I was wrong. From a brain tumor to sepsis--which had me hospitalized for six months, I've run the gamut!
Had to google gamut Thanks, I need another vocabulary word, then again I soaked about every other word there has been, learned around 30k words in high school. I am already exempt from my sickness.
