I am having to rush home from work and clear my family schedule to moderate these.  They are poorly attended and clearly I am NOT doing a good job moderating them.  I have often rushed home to have no one show up at all.  Please feel free to chat whenever you would like.  You may also post your own time and topic with which to invite members.  I will not be available to moderate however.  This is no longer a good use of my time.

Hi there, I often go into chat, and check to see if there are people in the MS chat room, seldom there is.  I never seem to make it for Monday nights, but at the same time it would be nice to chat with someone in the chat room, one on one....thee are so many interesting people here in the forum, that I would like to get to know them move often,,,,

So I am going to checkl the chat room more often, and from time to time will sit in ther to see if anyone comes in to join me.....

Thanks Gretchen for setting these things up in the past - again I am sorry that I never had the chance to attend more sessions

SHEILA!!!!!!!  I have wondered and thought about you so many times!!!!!  Gosh it is so good to hear form you again!!!  No I canceled chats.  If you want to chat just announce it in a thread and I am sure someone will join you. 
 
I just don't have the time or the energy to do this and moderate threads and posts everyday.  Sheila, I am looking forward to catching up with you.  I just notified Rhondab that you have posted.  I am sure she will be posting soon.  She is jumping stumps to say hey.

Sheila!!!!!! HEY!!!!! Yes...i jumped all the stumps and am here so excited to hear from u!!! Unfortunately chats were just not being productive and were exhausting to try to maintain, so they needed to be cancelled, but as Gretchen said, just post to anyone and i'm sure u'll have a chat buddy soon!

It's so good to hear from u!!! Are u still doing well??? I can't wait to hear all the details of what's been going on with u. I THINK i have u'r email still....it should be in my AOL list. If not i'll try to call or post to u here for it. I'm off to church with the kiddos now! Talk to u soon!

KAS!
I miss you!! It is good to hear from you.  Yeah I am on major life burn-out right now.  Don't be too impressed.  I just took two days off form work trying to keep from letting MS take me down!!  I am feeling better after a rest.

Gretchen & Heather & my other Moderator Friends,

I am scheduled to get a Jazzy Power Chair soon (within the next 3 weeks) so I can get around better at work and not be so exhausted when I go home from work.
I can't wait my friends! I had an evaluation by an Occupational Therapist and a Vendor from Orbit Medical at the same time about 2 weeks ago, then the OT went on vacation and is supposed to return on the 26th of May. As soon as she turns in her paperwork to the insurance company the vendor is ready to deliver the Chair to me.
 
I have also had help from the District Firemen (my wife is their Office Manager) and they recently tore off my front steps and put up a concrete ramp for me and they also plan to extend my back porch and put up a ramp there also, but that involves moving the gate to my fence but that's ok. These people around here where my wife and I work have really been fantastic to us!
 
So sorry I haven't been around much lately but as you can see I have been busy trying to get some things in some type of order for me. I still love you girls and I miss you tons! Hope you ladies have a great Memorial Day Holiday Weekend and please stay safe! Take care and will be back another time to chat with you ladies!
