    Now that the weekend is here, I finally have a moment to reflect on the last week. My job has been keeping me pretty busy thru the weekdays, and the weekends seem to fly by! I have to get my equipment packed up this morning for a trip to Milwaukee. The weather is great and all is well.

    Now to the Good News! :)
    I suffer from a chronic illness (well-actually three of them in varying degrees-all related). I wont go into the details of their nature. After being diagnosed and being hospitalized a few times last year, I started on a Medical Mystery Tour of Doctors, Tests, and Drugs to get my body to function at a level that allowed me to work AND have a normal home life. Its amazing how you can push yourself and never realize that your body isnt operating anywhere near normal. After starting treatments I slowly began to feel better. Now a year later, I went in for a whole battery of tests to determine my status. I swear they took a pint of blood from me. MRI's, Scopes, Exams, geeez oh weez. o_O Then the long wait for information. Finally on Thursday I got the good news that I am in remission. :D

    I am grateful for the chance to move forward in my life. I know that there isn't a Silver Bullet that will cure me, but I will take this good news and really enjoy the next year of living.(Next March I will have to go thru all of the testing again). So, TDPRI Brothers and Sisters, get out there and spread some kindness around. And ALWAYS be kind to yourself. ;) Remember that there is always someone fighting a battle much worse than what you just went thru.

    Have a GREAT Weekend Everybody!
