Bacteria Down, 2 Viuruses to Go

MDA protocol keeps plugging on, as Andrea strives to feel better. After 2 "all clear" test reports, we can safely say the bacteria is gone.
Tomorrow and Friday are her regular days for treatment of the 2 viruses that are so pesky and take all day and then some at MDA hospital Ambulatory Treatent Center. Pain management has helped with the side effects of the viruses somewhat. However, side effects of this helpful medicine include dizziness and loss of concentration, which Andrea makes into a joke at times that us both laugh at what could be a crying situation.
Your prayers help the best, so please keep them coming!

Hi Andrea,

They say that laughter is the best medicine, so that's a good thing. I'm glad the bacteria is gone. The viruses do typically take longer, but I know with a little more time, they will be gone as well. I have loss of concentration and no medication to attribute it to. In my case, it us probably age, but it doesn't matter, as long as you can laugh.

You're in my thoughts and prayers as always.

Love, Carolyn

Hi Andrea,

I haven’t met you, I know of you through pictures I see on your BFF Perry's desk. I work with Perry here at NSA, recently I decided to train for the Nike Women's 1/2 marathon in San Francisco with TNT. I would love to Run in your Honor. There is no obligation for you to say yes I just want you to know that when I cross the finish line I will be thinking about you and I will continue to help cross the ultimate finish line - a cure.
God Bless Kathy
