To All Of My Friends And Pre-friends...

I keep getting sick.  I'm so sorry I have been out of touch.  I still think about you and care about you.  Please don't forget me!

And a huge thank you to those of you who have helped Don and me literally live through the latest financial crisis.  We are still in a lot of trouble but without generous help Don would probably be without water and electricity and not have much healthy food, and I would be in the hospital.

Am also so grateful for the prayers, good thoughts, kind words.  I am blessed to have you in my life!  I am very lucky!!!

Welcome Back, Kotter

Obscure reference alert:  Welcome Back, Kotter was a TV show I used to watch, back in the day.  The person I am actually welcoming back: me.  My latest bout of back-to-back illnesses began at the end of May, 2012.  About 8 months ago.  I've been relatively well for about two weeks, and am praying hard that something doesn't come along to knock me off my feet again.  Lupus, fibromyalgia, pneumonias, asthma, bacterial infections, viruses, injuries, etc., please, take some time off.

Tests last month showed I have low gamma globulin levels, specifically IgG and IgM.  This could be putting me at risk of infection(s) and I am to consider getting gamma globulin.  I need to get over my phobia of other people's blood.  Admittedly I did have a blood transfusion once, but I was so severely anemic I didn't have much of a choice.

Anyway, hope to blog more.  Wonder if there is anyone out there.

About Me

My photo
I've travelled the distance from an Ivy League college to decades of enforced poverty--because I've needed to qualify for government health care in the U.S., since being diagnosed with lupus at the age of 23. I have a personal blog at that I've had so long I'm probably stuck with :) My other blogs are here on blogger...
