  • Doing well with the lungs. Having problems with bones, neck , sinus and dental. Nothing compared to before though. Living on my own so can't really complain. Just want to be more active.

  • Thanks Debbie for the Birthday Wishes.  I am doing pretty good, except for my depression. I have alot of so-called mental issues.  I just need to learn to relax more and stop worrying.  How was your Christmas and New Years?  I have to say this was one of the bests Christmas I have had, especially being a first time Grandma.  It has been pretty cold in Ohio.  The last three days has been in the 40s.  I read that there is a big flu outbreak :(  Be safe.   Take care, Crystal
