    Hi All....

    Its been a long time since I posted. Oh I still come every day and read, but there were so many emotions I was going thru and I just kept to my self until I got me straight!!!
    First I want to apologize to Sarah and Lisa. I think I was a little catty and hateful back then!! Sorry Guys!!
    Its been a great summer!!! Since I had my Ablation back in Jan. 2003 its been great!!! Im still not 100% and may never be, but I do O.K.
    We bought a 26ft travel trailer and havent stopped yet!!!
    If not for the HCMA I wouldent be able to live with HOCM and deal day in and day out.
    Thanks every one!!!

      I am glad to see your posting... but I really mean this ... I did not think your postings were as you have said. I simply saw you telling your point of view. So if you think I had issue with any past posting... I did not.

      I wish you continued good health!

      Be well,
