You are so welcome, it'a amazing how you touched my life in so many ways and we are complete strangers. Your journal was amazing and it kept me going when times got hard. I started somewhat of a blog myself. It's hard to post some days as i am so busy with everything. My honey keeps me very busy....if you would like to check it out journeythroughlifewithus@blogspot.com..God Bless and i'm so happy that your health is much better. Take care
