    Appt. with Dr. Lenke

    I am flying high right now! I just recieved a call from Dr. Lenkes nurse, and she made me an appt. for the 16th of May with Dr. Lenke. Isn't this great news! (I hope anyway).It's the consultation. I think that in my case he may be the one to help ME. Anyway, I just wanted you all to know. Got to go rest for a while as I tire easy. But I will be on here again. I want to thank everyone for being here for me!! Gentle Hugs to you all! Linda

    Waiting!!!

    Best news I have heard today. When I read your post, it was hard to read about your pain and frustration and I sent a small prayer also for an answer to your dilemma. I am praying Dr. Lenke gives you your miracle
