Hello Barto, it is Eldon. Your percentage went up and that is a good thing. Remember to take your meds as prescribed by your doctor, eat healthy and get plenty of rest.

Hey Rusty....

                  Not to worry...we've all been there.  Glad to hear you're doing better.  The power of positive thinking is a powerful thing........of course taking your meds, exercise and good food help too.  {{{{{ BIG HUG }}}}}
