Hi Everyone. I officially resigned from work yesterday so I no longer have an email address.  I'll set one up soon and let you know.  My health is still improving. Maybe I'll write more later. Love, Butterflake

I'm glad to hear you are slowly feeling better from being so sick. Now you can go home today and have a little resignation party - we'll be with you in spirit!

I'm sorry to hear that you had to resign. That can be very difficult, especially if you have been there for awhile and like what you do and who you work with. We have been, and will continue to think about you. Hope you are feeling better soon. Take care!

Donna.. I know when I couldn't work any more it was sad and I still miss the some of the people I worked with. I do keep in touch with some. Now it is time to do for yourself and family. Good Luck!!! Debbie

I am sure this was very difficult for you and my prayers are with you! I certainly hope you will find this decision has a good effect for your health. Try to rest and relax and give your body time to heal.

Praying for you and for all of us to experience remission!
