This is a sad time for that news, best to you all, and may the results of more tests prove that minor change to your lives will get positive results! My prayers headed your way.

Dear Steve;
My thoughts and prayers to you and your family at this most difficult time. Gemma already has a special spot in my heart as "Gemma" is one of my favorite names -- probably because my initials were GEM the first 20 years of my life.
PLease keep us posted and know that you can always come here and just vent or whine!
We love ya,
