About Me

Updated 5/28/20

Happy Spring!

I will not be hosting anymore swaps until the Coronavirus issue settles down due to post office problems. I hope everyone understands.

Everyone please stay safe during this difficult time.

Update 11/12/19. My doctor feels that it is my arthritis in my left arm and right knee. She ordered x-rays which I had done yesterday. Results showed arthritis. She also referred me to rheumatology. I finally got an apt. with the Nurse Practitioner in Rheumatology on March 25th. Hopefully I get some relief. Prayers would be appreciated.

Update 3/17/20: I have put all my doctor apts. on hold until it is safe to go outside unless of course I must go to the doctor. I hope that doesn't happen.

Update 2/6/20: I saw my new gastro doctor yesterday. He said that he will make a decision about my colonoscopy after he reads my records. I still have precancerous cells that need to be removed with blue dye. They have been there since last year, so I still need prayers. My next apt. with him is on May 13th. He was very nice.

I will no longer be doing the number of swaps that I used to do. I used to do 20 swaps every month. I have made a decision to cut back on a permanent basis. I'm not getting any younger and cannot do as much as I used to do. I hope everyone understands.

I am a founder or co-founder in the following groups. If you are interested in any of these groups, please send a request to join. Thank you! I won't be posting swaps in all these groups on a monthly basis as I used to. I hope everyone understands.
