Well, I am blown away..... Fena, thank you so much!! :D You have no idea how much the letter you sent out has lifted my spirits. I have received a TON of emails with well wishes and words of encouragement. Thank you sooo much to everyone who sent me emails, you have no idea how much they all mean to me.
The Doctors discharged me today as they are confident that I am able to do the self medication that is required to manage this condition. It has been a rough year of illness but I still hold on to the light that is burning brightly at the end of the tunnel. Letters of friendship like the ones I have received from all of you today just make that light burn a little brighter and brings it a little closer.
I am eagerly looking forward to the day that I am well enough to participate in all the Friends First events and am also excited about the "get-together" that Fena is arranging so I can meet some people while still in the recovery stage.
I am sure all of you will agree that Fena is an incredible person. We too felt that within minutes of meeting her that we have been fast friends for years.
If there is anybody in or close to the Wheeling area, I would love to have you over for a cuppa and a chat.
Once again, thank you Fena for reaching out to everyone and lifting my spirits so much... you are the bomb.
We are a group of unbelievably fun friends that meet regularly at different places around the burbs. Most of us are in the age range of 50+ but we do have some mature 40-somethings and some very alive 60-somethings. We invite all our friends---SINGLE, WIDOWED, COMMITTED RELATIONSHIPS AND EVEN THOSE THAT ARE MARRIED AND WANT A FUN NIGHT OUT- to invite their friends to come and hang out with us and meet our friends and make new friends.
It is through friends that almost all our friends have found interesting and fun people to enhance our lives. You will meet really good, fun and happy people at our events. You may meet someone to be friends with, do business with, become best friends or even to date! Our married friends have single friends, our single friends have married friends, our widowed friends have married friends, single friend even and widowed friends, our committed couple friends have married and single friends. BOTTOM LINE....FRIENDS ARE FRIENDS! Friends are Friends!!! Do you get it? LOL
