As mentioned a couple of weeks ago at http://blog.eogn.com/eastmans_online_genealogy/2007/12/no-newsletter-a.html, I recently had an unexpected trip to a local hospital's emergency room. While there, I was diagnosed as being a diabetic. That was news to me. However, I have since been adjusting my lifestyle, and it looks like I will learn to live with this in the same ways as do millions of other diabetics. In short, I expect to live a long and healthy life.
I would like to thank the several hundred people who sent e-mail messages or posted comments at the end of the original article. There is no way that I can send a personal "Thank you" message to each of you, but I do want you to know that I read and deeply appreciated every one of your comments.
At this holiday season, I know that I am blessed with good friends who care, even many friends whom I have never met.
Thank you for your kind thoughts.
