Hi again. I feel so bad about losing that last post. I'll try again. Thanks again for your support as I waited for my test results. I really do wonder if radiation is the culprit here. I had radiation in 1987. In those days, I think that overkill was the norm, so they may well have overdosed me and damaged my lungs. I did my walk--a big 10 minutes--but it's a start.
Elaine, have a grand time at Universal. We went there when Karen was about 9, and our favorite show was Honey, I Shrunk the kids, which had all sorts of special effects, such as the feeling that mice on the loose were scurrying around our feet! I doubt that it's still there, but I bet they have much more spectacular shows now. Enjoy!
Grace, I'm so happy for you having your son back on U.S. soil. I can only imagine the relief! I'm also glad to hear that you're adjusting to being home more. If you run out of rooms to deep clean, just let me know!
Tricia, I'm glad that your breathing doesn't stop you. I'm determined that it won't stop me either!
Tina, congrats on all your success with the cupcakes! SO much work--it's a very generous and kind thing that you do.
Love to you all. xo
