Unhappy acute lupus

Has anybody ever known anyone to live through acute lupus? I just found out a friend of mine I've known for two years, died yesterday of acute lupus. I knew she had been diagnosed and was really fighting for her life, but it finally won the fight. She had had surgery once before for bad pleurisy, she didn't wake up for a week. This time, she went in for surgery again, and with the damage to her heart she just couldn't wake up again. She again slipped in to a coma and passed on. She lived past her one year prognosis, but not by much. Does anybody ever live out a normal life span with acute lupus?

Tho -
I'm so sorry about your friend. From my reading, if the disease is caught before advanced stages, survival is very good. But then again, Lupus is affects everyone differently...
