No News

....is not necessarily good news in Skippy's case.

I want to thank all of you for your emails, texts, comments and phonecalls inquiring to my whereabouts.

Right now I am still among the living [see me type? :D] but feel more dead than alive. Due to some extreme complications I only have use of my right arm and I haven't felt up to posting, but thought I better put something up before one of y'all actually shows up at the hospital [or our home].

I didn't start this blog to chronicle my health [and the ensuing problems] and I am not going to start now but please understand that I have gone from bad [diagnosis] to worse [symptoms/flares] to the "You're joking, right? stage [heavy complications]. We didn't see any of this coming on so swiftly - but I suppose it is the nature of the disease that no one really knows what exactly is going to happen next.

I do read all your blogs - they make me happy - but simply do not have the strength or thought process to comment - but know I am there in spirit.

When [if?] I start to feel better I will begin posting again, but it will be the happy stuff [which, despite my health problems we still have happening - it's all good!]. Okay?

Okay! I am worn out now - but thanks again for checking in and I will, hopefully, talk to y'all soon.

Love, Skippy

Important PS: To those of you that I have called on my husband's cellphone [area code 703] when our phones were down? Could you, kindly, please refrain from using that number to contact us? It is actually his work phone. If you would like to call please use our home number [area code 571] and YES! you can now leave a message. Thanks so much.

Yep, knew it was bad, couldn't help bugging Pooldad anyway, just to check in. Won't do that again, but know that I'm thinking of you, sending much positive energy your way and love you dearly.

Can your doctor push for you to get into a drug trial?

Skippy I am sorry things are going so crappy for you now- I have been checking everyday to see if you had posted and was getting concerned. I thought about emailing you, but didn't want to intrude-
Know that my prayers are with you to feel better. I miss hearing your "voice" in the blogosphere :(
