Re: [IP] Hail Hail

I support you, in both the good times and the bad times.  I'm sitting here
using a text reader because my eyes bled so much yesterday that I am now
totally blind and am looking at two vitrecometies over the next month
because there is no more room for any more laser.  I think I do have a "good
attitude", but it still doesn't make the reality of what I am going through
any less.  For those of you who belive in God, please pray for me, and if
you don't believe in God, wish me well.  Listening (yes, it actually is
listening with a text reader, with both your heart and your ears) is what is
keeping me going right now.

Thanks for the support group,
