    With love, with patience and with faith, we'll make our way.

    Hope you feel better soon!! I'm in the same boat with a horrible cold/bronchitis type thing that struck me this past Tuesday.

    Get some rest!

    i had a flare up the week before thanksgiving that left me crippled. i knew it was coming because i walked up 7 steps and felt like i ran a marathon. it lasted for a few days. i use to feel guilty for sleeping so much..but i have to give in.

    hang in and take good care of yourself until it passes. you are not alone.. :o)
