    Thank you so much for your SparkGoodie. I have been trying to get an appointment with a specialist regarding my arthritis. The earliest I have been able to get is the third week in October and it is not even with the Dr. I had chosen, even with the help of my primary. I would be very much interest in how a change in your diet might affect your RA. I hope you will share what you have learned.
    Thinking of you often regarding your daughter and family. How often can they come and visit? Once a year, maybe?

    That is strange. I tried it twice, answering to your 'Current Status' message on your front SP page, and I received the "This SparkPage is private" message, twice.

    I was just told that your SP page is private and they would not let me respond to your comment. Is that new?

    Hi Laurel.

    Thank you for the goodie and the compliment.

    I'm still a member of the team so you'll still see me around.

    Take care.
