I want to start by saying thankyou to all of my Spark Friends who have stood beside me and support me! Your kindness, Sharing, and caring... the outpouring of support, the prayers the information is making my job a whole lot easier!
My health is getting better... my numbers are getting smaller, but I'm looking at the world in a different way! To date, over 500 cards, letters, Spark Mails, E mails and phone calls (Not to mention visits) have put me back on the road to recovery and I thank you all for that!
But now... it's time for me to kick it into high gear! I know what I must do and I must do it all before the operation in November! I want the numbers to be normal... I want to lose more weight (about 20 pounds would be nice) and I want to greet the world with a whole new me... The new and improved Ray!
I can do it! I know I can! This hurdle has to be conquered!
I need more information...(Knowledge is power)
*Phrase shamelessly stolen from a wise lady I know*... I seek the wisdom of those who know my situation and know how to help!
This setback isn't getting me down but it sure woke me up! The road isn't going to be easy but I will endure it and conquer it!
I apologize for not posting as much as I should but my waking hours have been spent from test to test, Doctor to Doctor, and at the University doing more studying and research! My exercise has tripled is duration and I'm spending more time with my Family!
I'm living life to the fullest and I'm not wasting any more time!
TODAY begins the "New Ray Project" including daily documentation,exercise, totally revamped nutrition, and The old Ray will be transformed!
If information is found that will help heart patents, Diabetics, kidney patents or good general information I'll bring it to Sparkpeople and share it with all of my friends!
Again thank you for everything! You've all been wonderful!
