I thought I would let you all know what is going on with me. On the sevnth my body decided to foresake  me. I had an aneurysm, stroke and heart attack. After surgery of the brain to fix the aneurysm I have been in intensive care. My goal is to to be  moved out of here by the weekend.
I would love to write more but my eyes were affected by the stroke and no longer work together, I'm hoping all this gets better with time.
luv and hugs
