with a new problem. a new disease…its very rare, and it may …depending on alot of factors…kill me faster than , my diabetis, kidney disease, or anything else I have. to the point.. while I dont know all the details yet.. Im planning my …getting my affairs in order..preparing for a long serious illness, where Im bedridden, in hospice care(in home)…it may not happen that fast… need to talk to the better doc first. the disease is called Pulmonary Hypertension. and it is progressive and fatal in 3 to ? yrs. At this point Im pretty much home bound-not totally.. but close.

there are treatments, but because of my other problems(kidney desease, etc) and side effects Im not sure that Im going to choose treatment. dont know yet…have my reasons.

I still need you all , my friends, Im handling it but am scared.. just need your support.
