Such a Long Time Away..............

Friday, September 05, 2014

Hello Friends.

I've been away from the Sparks community for a long while due to continuing health problems, and I'm fighting them every day. I haven't forgotten my Spark friends - but I haven't wanted to burden you all with negativity. I've been waiting for the day I can say, "I'm back and I feel great!"
Unfortunately, that day is still a ways away. In fact, I recently spent a week in hospital - with a new problem - but that's for another day.

I've recently received a number of emails and messages from Sparkies ------ and I wanted to acknowledge them all - and thank you all for continuing to think of me. It means a lot. A lot!
Please don't feel slighted if I don't respond.....I don't check my emails regularly. My eyes are a bit 'foggy' and reading the screen isn't too easy. But eventually, I get to all my emails - I binge-read them.

I've maintained my weight - and actually lost 10 pounds in the hospital, which is a good thing!!
So I'm building on that going forward.

For those who remember my adorable doxie Lucy --- she is fine and sweet as ever. She's 13 now and sleeps a lot.

I'll say so long for now ...... and hope to be back in the 'bosom' of 'Sparks-town' very soon.
Love to all.

    So good to hear from you! (I can't really talk as I've been erratic on SP as well). I'm sorry your not feeling well and hope that improves soon.

    So glad Lucy is still by your side!

    Libby, good to see you are still "plugging on"

    It's a bugger but what else can you do.

    I really hope the health problems lessen for you, there's no fun in being unwell, none at all.

    emoticon emoticon Hope you can get back more often, but if you can't, it's understandable. I use that control button/+/- sign to enlarge print on the computer for my dad and sometimes me. Lol emoticon to Lucy!

    Libby, can't tell you how wonderful it is to hear from you. Always keep you in my prayers. Wish things were going better for you. Don't ever think you are a burden...we do care about you and always look forward to hearing from you.

    PHOENIX gave you some good information. I have had to do that many times due to small print or the colors on someones page. It really does help.

    Please take care and update us when you can.

    big hugs....Mary Anne

    Hi Libby. It is so good to hear from you and I hope you'll be around some more. If you're going to binge, I guess binging on sparkmail is the way to go. I'm glad that Lucy is doing ok also. Stop by whenever you feel up to it. Hugs, Linda emoticon

    THERE"S MY GIRL! Back where she belongs! emoticon

    I know what's been going on and I'm just thrilled to see you home again, hanging on in and doing a little interacting with your SF's. Don't overdo things, Libs, just make sure you keep in touch so some of us at least can chivvy you along and support you when things are low.

    A big pat for Luscious Lady Lou, and a big hug for you!

    For reading on your computer, here is a hint that I learned from a SP Blog (thank you TIME2BLOOM4ME).

    Hold down the Ctrl (control key) and Shift key,
    repeatedly press the + key to enlarge the screen,
    to reverse press the - key

    Several eye issues here that are grateful for this technology.

    I have missed your funny stories, like the cool whip one!! Hope Lucy is keeping you out of trouble..... ha ha!! I'll be praying for a speedy recovery! My fibro is keeping me down the last few weeks, but I've managed to exercise no matter the cost. I'm tired of my weight problem. I hope to see you back full force and hug your sweet doggie for me!! My Frisco and Sookie says hi! Which are my little sweet puppies!!!

    I'm so sorry that your health problems continue and that you are now dealing with something new.

    I did send you spark mail a while back, but I took so long to do that, that you probably gave up on hearing from me. If you will write again, I will do better. I hope we can exchange email addresses - I'm much better at answering emails!

    I'm very glad you still have Lucy! My cat Simon is 14 now.

    Take care. Hugs and love,
