Dear friends,

Just a quick note to first thank you again for the tsunami of suggestions I received from so many of you.  Second, I also wanted to let you know that, having carefully considered the Mayo Clinic option, I have decided against it.  Instead, I have developed a treatment plan of sorts which combines elements from the different approaches you have suggested.  I am already doing better and I am feeling rather hopeful.

Again, thank you for everything, you rock!!

Hugs and cheers,
