Oh my gosh! I am a completely new member and I joined JUST so I could send a message to Sammie! I've been reading for a while and stumbled on this thread and couldn't stop reading.
Please, please hang in there! You sound so wonderful and strong and inspirational! My best wishes and prayers are sent your way! Is there any way I can get your address so I can send you something special? I haven't figured out the pm stuff yet, I'm a big doofus on the computer. I'm lucky I got this far. But I had to offer my support!
Please let us know how you are doing, Sammie and Mark. On this Thanksgiving eve your story makes me very thankful for the blessings I have.
Get well soon!
