    As of Monday, you will have a new moderator on this exchange. I know you will enjoy having Elizabeth as your Moderator! She is a wonderful person that has worked in communities for some time, and will take great care of you!

    I have loved helping out on the Lupus community and getting to know each of you! You will be missed!! But....

    If anyone ever decides to have a baby, you can visit me on the 1st Trimester , 3rd Trimester or Pregnancy After Loss communities! Or come visit me on the Digestive Disorders , Oral Health , Sleep Disorders & Kidney Disorders communities! :)

    Please give Elizabeth a warm welcome. Sending healthy thoughts out to all!!

    Thanks so much, Lisa. It really has been a pleasure working with the Lupus community!

    I've learned a lot about Lupus while here, so you know you have created a new advocate that will speak up about what this illness is really like for you.

    I will always be fond of my Lupies here and will checking on you! You can always come see me on other boards too :)

    Andie, I have found something you left behind.... A very large pair of shoes! I know this Community is very personal to you and please know I will work hard to grow into your "shoes" and in my knowledge of Lupus as moderator of this great tight-knit group of members.

    I have been quietly following your community for the last week while researching Lupus to gain more insight. I am impressed with the support you give to one another while battling this challenging diagnosis.

    Looking forward to working with all of you,
