Hi all,
I just wanted to let you know that I will be steeping down as co-moderator.  I have been too ill to help out in that capacity for quite some time and it isn't fair to Kimber and Rhonda to have to shoulder all that.  I appreciate you all allowing me to sit out for this huge amount of time.  I will be checking in and reading posts as often as I can though.
I am continuing to have the same problems with no answers.  I started running a low grade fever Sunday and my docs think it's either viral or my lupus or other unknown disease flaring up.  My MS is really bad right now, too.  I am so wobbly and weak.  I am also having major cognitive troubles and numbness and tingling in my leg and both feet.  I am still off of my Avonex and don't know when they will allow me back on it or anything else.
I had the labs drawn last week that are going to the Mayo clinic, hopefully they will show the culprit!
I ate a little bit today, I'm trying to see if my gut is working yet so I can get off of the TPN, I guess I'll know by tomorrow evening if I'm going to be regretting the food or not.
I'm very grateful to have met all of you, I have become friends with some wonderful people and I have met a couple of life-long friends.

Oh, Michelle, I'm so sorry your health is so poor!  But just 'cuz you're no longer going to "moderate", doesn't mean you can't post here! I hope you keep in touch with everyone. Take care.

O Michelle

I'm so sad to see u stepping down, but i do understand u'r need and this decision. We have been so blessed here at HealingWell to have u as the great moderator that u are. I'm sure many will echo my words when i say u have been such a gift to us all and will be sorely missed. I"m glad to see u'll still be here with us and we'll still get the benfit of u'r sound advice and sweet words of encouragement.

I'm just sick over how ill u are friend!! I just can't believe this is still going on for u and still no answers. I keep u in my prayers and look forward to hearing how the tests results turn out at the Mayo Clinic. Please do let us know how u are and what we can do for u. I will always be here for u.

Hi Michelle,


I am sorry that you have to step down as co-moderator, but please do come by and let us know how you are doing when you can. I hope that Mayo Clinic will be able to pinpoint what is happening, so you can finally get some treatment and relief. Please take care, and know that we are all pulling for you!

Hi Michelle,
    I am saddened that you decided to step down, but I do understand.  The most important thing is for you to continue to focus on getting better and know that you will always be a treasured friend and an inspiration to me. 
    Feel better Michelle, and let us know when you find out anything on those labs!

Hi Michelle.  I really hope that food you ate makes it through ok, you must miss eating.  We all will be waiting to hear if you find anything from the tests.  It was nice of you to moderate the forum and you did it well :-)
Take care,

Oh Michelle,

Please stay!!!  You simply must be here, HW will not be the same unless you are.  I have so enjoyed getting to know you on HW.  I will continue to pray for you.  I want so much for you to return to good health.  You are such an inspiration to me.  You are so brave and strong and I think of you often.  You are an amazing person and I am so truly blessed to know you.

I love you lots!

love and prayers,
