As you know, Lori has an advanced stage of Lupus, a serious auto-immune disease. Here are some major events that have occurred in the last 3 years:

~Lori was maid of honor in her friends wedding...her friend paid for her to get a spray tan, nails done, and eyebrows waxed...when she returned home, she was covered in tiny puss blisters all over her body, her nails were splitting in two, and one eyebrow was one huge blister. (Just from a day at the Spa)
~Once Lori was walking up a little hill and pulled a muscle in her leg. That muscle became severely abscessed and had to be lanced throughout her leg. She had 2 huge holes on both sides of her leg that literally took 6 months to heal. During which, she first used a walker, but her hands & wrists swelled to the size of softballs. She went back to the hospital and they gave her crutches, but the friction caused more abscess's under her arms, with another abscessed-like lump on her upper arm. So eventually, she had to use a wheelchair. (Just from walking up a hill)
Once she had developed an abscess in her tooth/cheek, causing her to be on antibiotics for 6 weeks before having to get a root canal on a perfectly good tooth. (nothing caused this...it just popped up)

~Once we took the kids to the beach, within ten minutes of walking, she couldn't breath, and had to use her inhaler three times and had to sit and rest every few minutes. She has breathing attacks like this often, and while at a doctors appointment I found out that she has an enlarged heart (due from lupus) and trouble breathing was to be expected.

These are just a couple of examples of Lori's day to day struggles with Lupus. Please let's help Lori! I know this isn't much, but every little bit helps! Thank You! :)
