Thanks so much, Vicky...
You are right that I am strong...
and I have my boxing gloves on right now
Sharon...thanks so much. Your prayers and your "simply being here" mean more to me than I can say.
Sy...Is this the same Mr. Humor who drives the ice cream truck and wears a white uniform? If so, please tell him that his ice cream and sweets will help to make me feel better....
if he isn't the same Mr. Humor, please tell him that laughter really is the best medicine, and that he can send me a prescription for some of that any time he wants.
Hope...Thanks so much for your sweet poem. I just love your name...and I wish that I had it right now.
Thanks also for the angels, they lighten my burden... and this is a burden, although I am not technically sick...
I am very threatened right now.
Thanks so much for all of your prayers and all of your comforting thoughts
Duncan...I'm so sorry I woke you up...or was it the thunderstorm.
We had one all night last night, and I didn't get to my computer til now because we had no power...thanks so much for the coffeeprayers........ I love coffee in the morning and every other time too...but it has to be decafe...
Nancy...Thanks so much for the lovely poem and also for keeping me always in your thoughts and prayers
Suthern...I think the next 50 years will be just great......thanks so VERY much!

I am so sorry that I could not reply to all of your wonderful thoughts until now.
We had a monster thunderstorm last night, with tornado warnings and sirens going off all night long. We lost our power about 1 AM, and didn't get it back until late this afternoon.....right after we bought a generator.
I send my love to all of you. ~ lots of thanks and strong chipmunk hugs also.
Thanks so much for all of the prayers...
I can already feel them working.
