Dear SMF Friends,
Just wanted you all to know that I have not died or forgot about all the wonderful people that I have met here at SMF. Due to problems with my liver (not cirrhosis) and my kidneys I have been under the strict care of doctors and nurses here in my home. By the time you spend the day with them punching, poking and prodding with blood test, fluids, and about anything else you can think of. I have just now gotten my strength back enough to do a few things and one of the most important things to me was touching base with all of my SMF Friends. I am pretty well back to normal now with only a few extra meds to take but it is still something that robs my strength very easily so if I go out and water the tomatoes and flowers I am finished for the day. Hope you all are doing OK, I will try to touch base with each of you as I can or maybe on chat. Take care and let me know if I can be of any help to any of you in any way.
Barry Scott Ratliff, Member SMF
