    I've been gone for a while for a couple reasons. One... my wife was in the hospitol again... she was diagnosed with MS (Multiple Sclerosis) She is temporarly blind in her right eye :( Thats not the worst part though... She has to take medicine to prolong the period between attacks... the medicine costs $50 per dosage.... and she has to take it daily! That's 1500 a month :( But that brings me to my second reason I've been gone. I'm a Real Estate Agent now. Hopefully I'll do well enough to make the 18,000 a year she needs for her medicine! If you know anyone buying or selling, let me know, I can get a referal fee! So if you live in tx, but are selling, I call someone who works for my company in texas, and they pay me a referal fee :) Thanks guys. I'll try to log on at least daily. I won't be back on until probably after 5 tonight.

    That's horrible dude. If I make it up to the MS Crawl for the Cure next year I'll be sure and throw an extra hundred or two onto my donation. Is there anything we can do for you guys? :o

    Thanks guys. With the medicine out now, its not the same disease it was 10+ years ago... the medicine can prolong the relaps from 6 months between to 6-8 years! Thats good news! And i know in the next 5-10 years they will find out lots more about it. Thanks again for the thoughts and praying.

    Well you kind of took my good words out of my mouth Branndon. Yes, it'll be expensive but with the drugs of today and the treatments of tomorrow I'm thinkin all will be well. Y'all ain't dumb so I can't imagine your wife is so do your own research and keep abreast of the latest developments!

    Best of luck to the both of you!
