Chemotherapy and Hospitalization
Dear Ted, I have been doing research on lupus cure and found EarthClinic which I think is amazingly interesting. My 44 year old sister was diagnosed with lupus 10 years ago and has recently had a crisis. She went to see her doctor because she was feeling ill and her doctor put her on chemotherapy because the lupus was damaging her kidneys. Needless to say, she has not been out of the hospital since (October 15). She has been in the intensive care unit due to complications with her heart and lungs because according to doctors she has liquid in both organs or an infection. She has gotten better now that she no longer needs an artificial respirator but doctors say her body has not yet responded to treatments being that lupus is still active and there is nothing else they can do. She started eliminating 3 grams of protein, then 6 grams and last time I was told, 13 grams of protein through urine tests. She is very swollen and although she feels good, she can't stand up because she is extremely swollen. What can I do to help her?
