Re: [MOL] Christine

Dear Christine and Carla,

Maybe I haven't been getting all my mail; anyway, this post sort of brought
me up to date on some things with both of you.  It's so hard to worry about
tests and/or not feeling well.  I try hard just to take one day at a time,
to relish nature and being on this earth, and to treat other people in the
moral and ethical way I think my God would have me do; hopefully also I can
spend time with people that will treat me the same way.  I will be thinking
about you and praying for you over the next few weeks.

I am OK.  The results of my throat surgery were so-so.  Every night when I
go to sleep the stuff in my sinuses and my stomache decides to move
together, and when it meets, to put on a version of The Music Man.  The
result has been that I don't sleep; I kind of cough all night.  Yesterday
the people at the hospital  loaned me a C-Pap machine.  I actually slept
from about 12-5, which was pretty good.  I have a face mask; I think it
makes me look sort of like I'm ready to fly a plane.  My husband Tony says
he feels left out and thinks he should get one too so we could match.  

If this helps, I'll see if the hospital will let me wangle one, or rent one
with the help of my insurance co.  12/10 I'm going to see an ENT at Sloan. 
My old ENT doesn't seem to have any more ideas. Blessings and hugs to

Hi gal.. I am sure sorry to hear that Christmas is so hard for you.  I know
 that the anniversary of a death of someone you love is very difficult and
around the holidays would make it harder, but Christine there is so much to
find in the blessings of Christmas and the celebration of what it means.. 
You have such a lovely family and I will be praying that you can have a
truly special one this year with the memory of your mom and her love just
being an added blessing to all of you..

I can tell that you have some trepidations about the mammogram needing to
be repeated ontop of the concern with the cyst.  Christine, no matter what,
you just remember that you can heal and refocus on that wonderful inner
spirit of strength, healing, comfort and love that lives inside of you... 
You can do it gal!!  I know you can..

How did you and your sister do at the craft show??  I hope that it was
successful and fun.. what all did you two make/sell??

I am doing pretty well.  Headaches and dizziness are still there along with
funny rushes of tinglings buzzing here and there, but I will be getting the
MRI on Wednesday.

I also need to call the doctor about my stomach again...  I have been on
prevacid and ran out when I went to Nashville...  Well, I managed to get
ill again and I guess I had better find out exactly what is going on
there...So I will call tomorrow and see what is next there...  How many
years went by that I didn't even see a doctor and now I feel like I can't
go without!!  LOL!!  Oh well, I know that I will heal and all this will be
behind me..  I guess this is just the time for me to make sure that all is
on course...

Well Christine, you let me know how you are doing and know that I am always
an email away... God bless you my friend and lots of hugs and love, Carla
