When everything in your life is right on track, it's easy to believe that things happen for a reason; it's easy to have faith. But when things start to go wrong then it's very hard to hold on to that faith. It's hard not to wonder whose reasons these things happen for.

IMO my wife Joyce who was is suffering from Lupus, a Doctor informed her that her Lupus is thickening her lung walls (hence oxygen 24/7) and at the same time her Scleroderma is hardening her lungs, causing them to bump up against her heart which lead to a Heart Enlargement hence, Congestive Heart issues and possible Heart Failure.

The majority of patients with Sjogren’s syndrome that she also had also experience those symptoms in conjunction with another autoimmune disease, which is considered secondary Sjogren’s. Antibodies are tags in your body that mark material (usually foreign) that your immune system will then attack. However, in the case of autoimmune diseases such as Sjogren’s and Lupus, the antibodies tag your own cells.

If Joyce should suffer Congestive Heart Failure and because of her previous Heart Attack, which caused the death of 15% of her heart, we knew that she will be with our Lord too soon. (She did on May 27th 2014)

The Doctors came up with a treatment with the suppression of her immune system using Prednisone which treats many different conditions such as allergic disorders, skin conditions, ulcerative colitis, arthritis, lupus, psoriasis, or breathing disorders, like Joyce’s advanced COPD (what a stupid idea) and then the down side is any cold or bio infection will also kill her.

Dr. Richard Burt, an autoimmune disease specialist at Northwestern Memorial Hospital, is pioneering a possible therapy for people living with autoimmune diseases such as Multiple Sclerosis and lupus. Many of his patients no longer show signs of the disease and have had reversals in their symptoms the treatment costs $125,000 (U.S.).

Yet, Joyce is now with GOD.

So Close, yet so far.
