Leta,

I hope you haven't scheduled more than your body can handle, and hope you manage to get through the next few weeks. Hopefully you'll get some answers from your doctors. Let us know how the ultrasound and the rest of your tests go. And do try to get some rest. I'll be thinking of you.

Hi Leta--
Just wondering how you are doing. I've been out of sorts, having trouble focusing, hence my last post. I hope you are feeling better and that you get the answers you need. I'm still having trouble with the sun, and this time the pharmacist stuck a label about sunsensitivity on the protopic ointment I've been using. I'm in a lot of pain, I took to trying to swim everyday outside a little and its caught up with me. I think of you alot and am so grateful for all the help you've given me. I really hope everything checks out good and they get you the treatment and stuff to make your life good and less painful. The shrimp thing really gets me because where I live, like 20 miles from the ocean, smells from time to time from the shrimp. I can't imagine what it would do to you if you had an allergy. Take care and let us know what happens.
Love, Marji

Leta,
  (((Hugs))) I'm sorry your going through all this. Hopefully, once its all done and they get the results back they will know what direction to go for better treatment so you will start to feel better. Hang in there and rest some. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
