There’s a lot going on behind the scenes here at LDL and I just wanted to give you all a quick update on what’s going to be happening:

  • I’ve made a few updates on the website, with more to come. Most notably, I’ve added an News and Announcement box on the home page where you can find links to events or more time-sensitive news items that can’t wait for my monthly news roundup. If you know of a webinar or other kind of lupus event, let me know and you might see it posted!
  • I won an award! Sort of. For the second year in a row, Life Despite Lupus has been picked by as a Top Blog!
  • New links have been added to the Lupus Resources page.
  • On a more personal note, my kidneys failed back in November of 2013 and I’ve been on dialysis ever since. Happily, I found a donor willing to part with their organ and will be getting a transplant on Wend the 28th. While I’m in recovery, I’ll be working on more updates and better features, but the LDL website will be on hiatus. If everything goes smoothly, then I’ll come back better than ever. Though who knew that I’d ever miss the days when I only had lupus to worry about, right?
