Happiest of Tuesdays to you EveryBUDDY! I hope this finds you having a great one. We have had that ridiculous stomach virus here at our house, so the last couple of days have been not fun .

Which brings us to “V”. February is National Heart Month. Heart disease is the leading cause of death among women, and in Systemic Lupus heart disease can be a significant heath risk. “Vascular” health among those of us with serious flare activity is a major problem. Although I have congestive heart failure due to mine, with 35 to 40 % ejection fraction, and peripheral neuropathy, and have had a stroke, I am no expert on the subject, by any means. That being the case, I thought it would be better to direct you to some articles …………
