speaking of kate....

She called me up earlier. The big news is that after a couple of months of doctors saying, "we're not sure what it is," it's now confirmed. She has lupus. The reason they couldn't diagnose it a few months ago was because it was still in its early stages.

She's taking it okay, i suppose. She said that it's an annoyance more than anything else, and she doesn't want it to stop her lifestyle. She still rollerblades a lot, socializes a lot. She said the only noticeable change she's had to do is her diet - she's supposed to include heavy amounts of protein, so she's been eating more red meat and eggs. I could feel her roll her eyes on the phone when she talked about her mom joining a my-kid-has-lupus support group. i think her words were "i don't want to be the reason why my mom has to go to a support group!"

But i know that it scares her some. Hell, it scares me some too. it also makes me a bit angry. I mean... she's going to have it for the rest of her life. that sucks. She deserves better. she needs something to go right in her life.

So Jer, wherever you are, call her and sweep her off her feet, all right?
