    Thursday I started out at the Drs appt. which lasted 2 1/2 hrs. I had 8 different appts. / tests. Many of the tests are ones I never had before some are repeats to get acurrate results.

    Today 5 different appts./ tests. They booked as many tests they can get in all in one day.

    From my schedule I will be here until the 8th of July. With many tests and procedures. 5 to 6 appts / tests daily.

    The last day is with the Dr. to try to explain all that is going on.

    Thanks for all the support and well wishes they are in much appreciated right now this is extremely hard on me. Tom and Marilyn left this am as I left for today's appts. I'll update when I can get to a computer. Deb

    Wow! The word "grueling" used by Dave is exactly what I thought too.

    I hope you are able to take some relaxing meal breaks and get the rest you need at night to make it through the day.

    I'm guessing your days are going to fly by!

    (((hugs))) to you - Haylen

    Hang in there, Deb! Get as much rest as you can...it sounds as if you really need to watch your sleep and food intake, to keep up with the fast pace.

    Wow, that sounds overwhelming for sure! But with everything you've already been through, you're probably looking at this as an investment in your future good health, so that makes it a little easier.

    I hope you can get some rest in the midst of all this. I'll be keeping an eye out for your next update.

    Hugs,
