Just a quick note to say "Hi" to everyone and let you know I'm still here but pretty inactive...  Plan to be back blogging, visiting, and playing in challenges in August.  I did manage to stop by and visit everyone that commented on my last blog posts today.  Still have a lot of you to visit.

I am breathing a little better but the infection is not cleared up and I'm still pretty weak.  Still not smoking and decided that no matter what happens I don't think I'll be lighting up again.  Still don't even want one or want to be around smoke as I start choking and hacking all over again (not fun).

Hope to see you all soon.
"Love * Hugs" Carol (Granny)

It's good to hear from you, even a short post. Sounds to me like you are starting to take control of that roller coaster!! As for quitting smoking, that is a major accomplishment...I'd know I've done it more times than I can count (shamefaced grin). But having made it this long and with that sort of'll make it! We want you back so get better ASAP!
Thinking of you,

Nice to see you posting Carol, glad you are improving albeit slowly. Well done on not smoking, I can only imagine how hard it must be never having been a smoker myself, but keep it up, thinking of you and wishing you well.

Hi Carol,
Hope your infection clears up soon or has cleared up by now. Still on the e-cigs here and feeling so much healthier, no morning cough anymore, no chest infections, and I can not stand the smell of cigarette smoke now, so that's all good things. Anyhow just thought you might want to stop by my blog...but not telling you why LOL
