Merry Christmas Ladies-

I hope this note finds all of you doing well. I miss everyone dearly. It looks like things have really slowed down here on the board. It makes me sad. But I know how life gets and of course I am not around here hardly anymore either. So here is what has been going on with me. I told y'all that I was diagnosed with epilepsy back in March. Things have been going fairly well with that. I had 2 seizures in October. I have been having some pretty serious problems with my right eye and have pretty much no vision it in. I have to get prednisone injections around the eye once a month.  I am currently being tested for either Rhuematoid Arthritis or Lupus. The eye problem that I have is connected with both of the diseases so they want to rule them out. I am also dealing with incredible amounts of pain all over my body on a daily basis. It does get frustrating and sometimes I go days where I can hardly get out of bed to use the bathroom and let Lelu, my boston terrier outside to go pottie, but I have a good God and He takes care of me and I know that HE WILL HEAL ME!!!! I also have great friends and family who have been very helpful.

So that is what has been going on with me. Sorry for the ho hum news. But that is my life right now. I am excited to spend Christmas up at my moms. She lives just 5 miles from me. My two brothers and their families will be coming over as well late Christmas eve, so we will all be together on Christmas morning. And I cannot wait for that!!! So I have that to look forward to!!

I miss all of you ladies dearly.

I am trying to get use to this new format. I don't see a place where I can change the colors of what I type. Bummer. Oh well. I can get use to not being able to do that anymore. LOL

I miss the colours, too, even though I usually used Quick Reply anyway. I'm hoping that in the New Year, the techs will make lots of progress getting things sorted out here so we'll all be back posting like crazy. ;)

Hooray for the great Christmas plans! Nice to have family so close. I'll be going to my parents' place on Boxing Day (Dec 26th) but we have Christmas Day at home.

I'll be praying for your health. Do the docs think your eyesight will come back in the right eye? Mine is fairly useless, didn't develop much when I was young. If I really want to, I can get away with using just the left contact lens. Might be more clumsy than the average person, though. ;)

Hugs aplenty!
