    Hi! How are you doing? Hope your Christmas was a good one. I bought myself a early present for myself two weeks ago. I adopted a Beagle from our humane society. I named him Cooper. He's really loving. I was going to wait until spring to get a dog. But, I went to their open house and bingo I came home a few days later with him. lol I couldn't resist. My kids were naturally pushing me to adopt him too. lol Take care, Kim

    Texas Quilter - how are you ? I just got back from an Alaskan cruise and thought of you. YI had to use my power scooter or push wheelchair the entire time but it was fun meeting everyone. It was a Charles Stanley sponsored cruise. You said you were going on a cruise or long trip late last year and I never heard how it was for you. Richard

    Dianne, I'm a little worried about the trip because of all the pain I've been having. My GP has prescribed two different pain medications (Lyrica and Tramadol) but they don't help enough. Do you have a lot of pain? If I don't get this pain under control, I won't be able to enjoy the trip, and I'm a little worried about being on the plane.

    Thank-you for touching base. How nice that you went on a cruise! I hope you had a fabulous time. I'm sure the scooter was a great benefit. My hubby and I are taking a trip to Phoenix soon. I am getting weaker and declining. I hope you are stable and doing okay? I'm still trusting in Jesus moment by moment.

    Dianne, thank you for praying for me. Yesterday, I was formally diagnosed with ALS. These are very very dark days, as you know. I cling to Jesus, and entrust my health to Him. I seem to go from periods of fear and terror to peace and trust. Two months ago, I was entirely healthy. It's all very overwhelming. And I seem to be getting worse by the day. I can hardly walk anymore. I wish there was something to slow down the progression. My doctor is prescribing Riluzole. How are you?

    Thank you for your prayers. The leading expert neurologist at the Vancouver ALS clinic said that he is certain I have ALS, even though I'm just starting the assessments. My CT scan was clear. Prayer is my lifeline to sanity right now. I cry to God day and night. I'm only 58, a first grade teacher, healthy and full of life until mid November.

    You seem so strong in your faith. I am facing a likely diagnosis of ALS, according to my doctor. I'm in the onset stage, undergoing tests, and so terrified. I'm a Christian, crying out to God, but feeling despair and fear. Do you have peace? I know The Lord loves me and cares for me, but I'm not feeling it.

    So glad to come across you. I live just outside of Lubbock. I don't quilt, but my mom was one. She owned The Quilt Shop in Lubbock. Also, wrote books, taught classes, and was a certified appraise.
