Well, I am fairly certain i'm about to be admitted to the hospital again.  I'm about to go to Gulfport to see my doc and i'm pretty sure she's going to put me back in.  I'm soooo full of fluid and sob.  My b/p was 164/104 this morning which is down from 174/110 last night with my meds! 
Overall, I actually feel better than I have for the last few days.  I think, possibly the procrit shot I got on Wednesday has brought my counts up some.  Hopefully!
Anywho...I'll keep you all informed.  If i'm not around for a few days, you know where I am!  I hope you all have some good days.  If you do, cherish them...if not just remember 'this too shall pass'.
                                                                                                           God Bless & Keep you all,

Dear Judy, Just got your book and started reading it right away. Unfortuneately, with two kids, I don't get much reading time, but I've really enjoyed it so far. I wanted to let you know about a book you may be interested in reading. It called "Story of a Soul", and it's the autobiography of Saint Therese of Lisiuex. She lived only a shor time, passing awayat 23 of tuberculosis. She embraced her suffering as something she couild offer to God.
