Ok, I can NOT compose a message for some reason, so this is the ONLY way I have of communicating with everyone at one time.
I spent Monday and Tuesday in the hospital. I had extensive blood work done and a skin biopsy taken. 8 Doctors came to see me when I was in the ER and NOT ONE OF THEM KNEW WHAT I HAD! EVERYONE OF THEM TOOK PICTURES OF EVERY PART OF MY BODY. I EVEN HAD TO SIGN A RELEASE FORM IN CASE THE PICTURES WERE PUBLISHED! OH BOY! Leave it to me to have something no one's ever seen or heard of!

After I was admitted to my room, they took 10 vials of blood, which was fine, BUT THEN, THEY TOOK 5 BOTTLES, YES, BOTTLES OF BLOOD ALSO! They looked like mini milk bottles. That's the only way I can describe them. I NEVER would have thought I had that much blood, but I did and I'm still alive! hahaha! After that, they took me to the Operating Room, put me to sleep and took a nice little piece of meat from my arm. In it's place, they left 4-5 stitches. IT'S UGLY and it's gonna SCAR UGLY, TOO! But, hey, who's complaining? It's NO UGLIER THAN MY SKIN RIGHT NOW! hahaha!

One bit of almost good news...the Rhuemotologist THINKS it might be a FORM OF LUPUS. If you want to call that good news? Well, in a way it COULD be. It's NOT the form that's FATAL, SO THAT IS GOOD NEWS!! She said there are MANY DIFFERENT FORMS OF LUPUS AND THIS MIGHT BE ONE OF THEM. In a way, it would be a relief to know what's going on, as long as it's the one that's NOT GONNA KILL ME! At least it can be treated, she said, WHEN we find out what it is. We should know something by Friday or Monday.

So....for now....I'm on Prednisone, a steroid, which lowers my Immune system even more. GREAT! Sarcasm. I just want to know what this is! It hurts and I'm tired of looking like this. I can't go any place or be around anyone. But, I wanted you to know WHY I haven't been on in the last couple of days. I'm sorry if I haven't answered you or sent you anything, but that's the reason. I would like to send you all a message but I can't, AGAIN! I was able to do it ONE TIME and now I can't do it again.

I will keep you informed if anything else happens. Thank you for your understanding.

Early in the morning sun rise with many hopes but its set hopelessly.
All the flowers were bloom this evening with pleasant smell but its now wither awfully
n tonight all d stars came out to play a signal but all of them are not shining,
because they all knows my friend is sick.
Wish u a Cure Soon and Healthy Days Ahead...

Barbara, Have you tried using a different browser? I can only send messages on google chrome, but can only post videos on IE. Go figure.
Hoping they have a good diagnosis for what you have and a SPEEDY recovery..
Hugs,
Terry

This Christmas with Mystic was so different than last year. Last year, she wasn\'t sure, 1) what this holiday was 2) if she could even trust me yet 3) WHY was this day different than the others. Until November 2012, Mystic never really showed real...
