Thank you so much Max for this wonderful portrait and your lovely wishes. Very nice of you ! Also thank you si much my dear friends for all your concern and wishes! Trust me I need those prayers! My lungs were covered with fluid until I could not breathe well and I was rushed to the hospital a week ago! They inserted a tube in between my lungs so I could breathe better. I went through a cat Scan and I'm waiting for the results! The initial feeling I get from the doctors is not good! So I'm praying myself right now! Thanks again everybody! This really cheered me up! I love you all! #8329181
