@siosal How are you today? Did you get any information from the articles @gingerw posted? Colleen asked me to join the conversation. I don’t have ANCA but my sister does. She was diagnosed about 5 yrs ago and is doing very well. I think she had rituxan infusions. I have a different autoimmune disease, but i also had rituxan. It was given as 2 doses twice a year. Unfortunately for me, it quit working after the 3rd cycle. I then had 6 cycles of cyclophosphamide which put me into remission. Now the doctor is trying an oral drug that will keep me in remission.
If you are old enough to get the AARP magazine, there is a wonderful article about autoimmune diseases. I haven’t been able to access the article online so cant provide a link. I’ll keep trying.
I know you’ll be okay, just keep taking care of yourself (think Covid), and rest even when you don’t want to.

Becky, I think you might be referring to this recent AARP article:
– The Rising Toll of Autoimmune Diseases in Older People https://www.aarp.org/health/conditions-treatments/info-2021/autoimmune-diseases-rising.html

Good to hear from you.
My very large family including uncles aunts and cousins seem to have a cAst of characters with various often a bit mysterious autoimmune issues. I have several as does one sister. Ours are different ones. Some of
My aunts and first and second cousins have similar problems.
After reDing all the sad spouse comments i got quite a scare.
I feel fine. I used to need a nap each day. Since my second covid shot i have not needed one.

I hope you and your sister are doing well.
Thank you.
