I am finally home and back to all my loved ones.  My journey taught me so much about myself.  I found strength that I didnt know I had and faith that I didnt realize was so strong.  Being away also made me appreciate the life I had here.  I have so much to be grateful for and with this ephiany, I plan to live my life to the fullest every single day. 

So as you all know, my disease is Systemic Mastocytosis.  I have already begun the process of seeking specialist in the area to see me.  I hope to get into MD Anderson soon as one of the board members of the Mastocytosis Society practices here.  Please dont let the name “MD Anderson” scare you.  Because this is a disease of the blood, it is imperative that we take a more aggressive approach to keep it at bay.  I am going to keep blogging so that you all can see how my progress is going. 

Again, I thank you all for your prayers and thoughts and know that I am ready to fight this with everything I have and I will succeed. 

Love – Vee
