My dear Jackie, One hour at a time. One ten minute interval at a time.I don't have any answers, only my own problems which I'm not going to burden you with. Maybe, when you're well you can come visit me in California on the ocean. It's something to look forward to. There's a new gel being tried in Europe. I'm putting my hopes in that. Please stay alive, I'll try to promise to do the same. Hugs and kisses, Sally
