I was so excited and pleased to receive your message. I am so glad that you were able to spend Christmas at home, I am sure that it must have been exciting and over whelming for you all at the same time!
Robyne, you have been through so much over the years, I pray that this brings you the relief from pain you deserve so much. I am currently writing a book about pain and my journey through it. Karla Nygren is also co-writing it with me. I will shortly start filming a documentry and would like the opportunity to talk about the possibility of your involvement in that. Could I ask you to send me a private email to email@example.com and include your phone number & address so that I can talk to you and send you some imformation.
I am so pleased that things are improving for you, that I know will give hope for many. God Bless & best wishes to you, I look forward to talking to you soon.
Love & gentle hugs

Have you spoken to Trace or Suze lately? I know that Trace is still pain free & busy helping the rest of us find help. I have an appointment with professor Vancaillie on the 4 December at the Royal Hospital for Women in Sydney, Trace wrote to him a while ago & his secretary rang me to make the appointment.

She sees a few patients from Vancaillie's endo/gyno clinic once a week, and because I had travelled down there from Bathurst, they rang her & asked if she could come in a little earlier to talk to me. She was wonderful, very compassionate & understanding. She explained how the three different groups of pain medication worked & then we worked out a pain management plan for me. My pain is different since that last visit, and I am hoping that Prof. Vancaillie will refer me to her again. It might be worth giving Trace a ring, and get some names etc from her, I know that she has been researching for us.
