Thank you so much for your kind words. I really do get a lot of support here from those I have never met. I can't even begin to thank every one for picking me up when I need it. Your pots have meant a lot to me and I canít even begin to express my appreciation.
I am so very tired today and that is when I feel the most vulnerable. I got up in the middle of the night because of pericarditis pain and took a pain pill. I am still groggy. I have to sleep sitting up and probably will have to tonight as the pain is quite intense. Darn lupus. I donít want to go to another DR today. I know the pain from so many episodes. Maybe I can just call the DR and take more steroids for a few days. I am just frustrated and worried about Mark too. Itís funnyÖI worry about him and he is always worried about me. We make a good pair.

When you get in a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hold on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn. -- Harriet Beecher Stowe
