Today is the first day of chemo for one of the Wooo Hooo's. Our Nancy has Lupus and this disease of a thousand faces has struck again.
Four years ago we almost lost Nancy to Lupus when it decided to turn her ordinary cold into a nightmare. Within hours she was unable to breath and was rushed to the hospital where an emergency tracheotomy was performed. It was during this time in hospital that the doctor's discovered that Lupus was also attacking her kidney's.
Previous medications were just not keeping up with the way Lupus was affecting her system and Lupus found a way around the medications being prescribed.
So today a more aggressive drug will be introduced to try to keep this horrible disease at bay for a long, long time.
Nancy, we are all thinking of you! We love you girlfriend, there are many, many prayers being sent your way....you WILL complete your half marathon in May and we ARE going to party it up on the Rideau Lakes Bike Tour in June!
Life's fun if you don't weaken,
