Happiest of Holidays to You and Yours

May  You, Your Family, and Loved Ones  be Blessed by the Love, Spirit and Joys of this Holiday Season and may you Experience All of the Best that our Life offers in The New Year Ahead!

Thanks to the human heart by which we live,
Thanks to its tenderness, its joys, and fears,
To me the meanest flower that blows can give
Thoughts that do often lie too deep for tears.


The Winner of the $75 Gift Certificate from Novica is Anita from Castles Crowns and Cottages
Congratulations Anita!

Leslie said...

Hi Karena!

I just realized I responded to your comment however you are set on no reply blogger so you never received my response.

I've had a number of requests to discuss the impact of illness on the skin. Your case appears to be the most severe and I'd like to address it on my blog. It would be helpful to get a health history.. whatever you are comfortable with. You can let me know what you would like to appear on my blog and what you would like to stay personal.

I will be able to help in a general sense as I am not a medical doctor and will not be seeing you (formally) as a patient.

Best to you ~ xxleslie
