I just want to let everyone know that my presence here is likely going to be sporadic over the coming weeks or months.

I have some health issues that I need to address which will mean, at the very least, 2 out patient procedure spread out over the course of a few weeks or possibly a couple of months depending on how I heal from the first round and the success of it as well.

While things are serious they are not considered life threatening or anything like that. I have some blockages in my legs that need to be taken care of and due to being diabetic it is really unknown how quickly I will heal from the procedures and as a result I will probably have to limit the amount of time I spend at my desk in front of my computer.

On Monday I will be having a special MRI done to map the blood flow in my legs and then a week later will meet with the doctor to discuss the results and come up with a specific plan of action and to schedule the first round.

I just wanted to let you all know what I going to be happening so that no one worries that I dropped off the face of the earth or something. Regardless of how much time I can spend visiting and keeping up with all of you please know that I am thinking about everyone here and that my most sincere wishes that all of you continue to achieve you victories over depression.

my thoughts are with you as well. as a fellow diabetic i share your pain and frustration.
"No one really dies because they have loved. Because they love they stay in the hearts of the people they have touched so in that their memory lives on." Ghost whisperer-i know corny but this touched me deep down and i see so much truth in it.
