Hi Everyone!
The fight in me is not against any person or stance or government. The fight in me is for my health. All of you who have traveled this road with me through blog land and have stuck around I thank you. I appreciate your loving emails, cards, and encouragement. You touch my heart and keep my spirit alive. I thank you so much.
MRI results were good and bad. So in just a few words

The fight in me is to stay walking and keep my legs strong. That I have been doing for almost 13 years. There are lesions on my brain and a sryinx on my spine that have been there for 6 years and I have managed, through the grace of the gods, to keep those from growing. That's the good news

The fight in me is a new one now. One that effects my brain as well. One that I can fight with the right tools  and an herbal regime I will set before my doctor. I really do not want to take the meds on the market for this.

The fight in me is to not loose any more brain power than I already have.
The fight in me is to stay lucid
The fight in me is to not to become a burden on my family and friends
The fight in me is to live with full knowledge of what the hell I am doing
The fight in me is to continue.

The fight in me is to love my family no matter our differences

The fight in me is to create no matter how difficult

 And oh yeahhhh the fight in me is to know that Mike and I have 31 years together Oct 3.
OK that is enough to send someone to the nut house right??? LOL
Had to put a bit of humor in here this is getting just to serious.
Plus what is with my hair in this photo?
Now this is a laugh;

Honor and Integrity in Life in Art

  5. There is a lot to be send about strength of will. I have a friend that beat cancer with diet and herbs...that was 40 years ago and she is still fighting and has had a good life. I don't know what your new situation is, but keep faith and fight on.
