“Thanks to you I am very positive about all the things I had originally feared, but I don’t even think you could put a positive spin on this electrolyte solution. I am no longer focused on all the big things that worried me. Thank you again for being so patient with us. You have truly made it a lot easier for me to keep up my spirits.”
