      Thanks for the replies.  We are going back to MDA tomorrow and having blood work and EKG, the last two things we need for the trial.  Hopefully Dr. Holmsi will have some answers for us when we get there and I hope to start the trial as soon as possible.  I am encouraged to read that the side effects are doable since I am in a classroom everyday.  My kids (students) are all so supportive, I get 15-20 texts a day letting me know they are there for me if I need them.

      Tomorrow is my 62 birthday and I will spend it getting information at MDA.  I am excited about that.  Just before my 60th birthday I was griping about turning 60 and making it known to anyone who would sit still and listen.  5 days before my 60th I had a major heart attack.  After that I was thrilled to turn 60, so having this at 62 isn't so bad.

      Karen and I pray for all of you daily….even though we don't know all your names, God does.
