Hello to all of my fellow forum members.
I just wanted to let you all know that I will not be checking this forum very often, if at all, for probably a long while. I know how WE get worried when we don't see regular posters checking in on the forum, so I thought I would update you on my life a bit.
My husband has been initially diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease). We are in the midst of setting up appointments for 2nd opinions, etc. As well as trying to finish building our new home. So, I will be MIA for some time.
If any of you would like to talk to me, please direct questions to Cecilia (flchurchlady). Cecilia has my home telephone number and we talk frequently. (Cece - I hope you don't mind!)
Good Luck to all of you with your pending surgeries and to those of you recovering. Keep your chins up and a positive attitude and I will be thinking of all of you.
This has been a very emotionally draining time for us - our lives have just been turned totally upside down over the last week. All prayers and positive vibes will be greatly appreciated.
I will miss "chatting" with you all a great deal.
