A HUGE thank you for all of the generous donations! I am not sure how to see each one or get contact information to send a proper thank you individually so I hope you see this! I also tweeted one out. I appreciate it beyond words.

I am now over 1/10th of the way to new hearing aids! Amazing! I will keep you posted on that goal. You are the best for sharing, RTing or just saying hello!

Hello everyone! Just a quick update and thank you to all who have chipped in! I paid for an appointment / pain assessment that led to a prescription for LDN, which I started several weeks back and am still titrating on. This medication is very interesting and works by causing your body to release more endorphins, which relieves pain and inflammation. It can also help with fatigue and brain fog. So far, it’s helping me — a subtle, but real boost! So thank you!

Donations will also be put in savings toward new hearing aids, which cost $10,000 (last time I had a program where I got 50% off so I am looking again for something like it for the replacements). I have about … 1/10th of that. It’s a great start–amazing!

We continue to work on derecho repairs. I got referred to a nonprofit that builds ramps. I will apply and hopefully they can accept us into the program. They do this work for only the cost of lumber! BUT this all depends on our deck getting repaired, too. So a lot hangs in the balance, as usual.

Thank you all much for your generosity and kindness!
