Re: [MOL] Marty: Diet Info



PJ, Dear:  Of course we understand!  And you DID tell me about it sometime
ago -- I remember.  You are so young -- your blood pressure should NOT be
that high!  I went in just before I found out I had cancer, and mine was
187/135!  That was scary.  Now, with medication, it's perfect.  I hope you
are taking medication.  As for the diet, I know you can do this, but don't
think for a minute that no one will love you if you try and fail.  Just try
again, and we'll all be there with you.  Love you, Kathy in Boise
