Hi,

 I hope all are well there.  I continue to feel good and my strength is returning.  We are planning to  go to Wisconsin for the rest of July and August. 

My Dr. here in TX is trying to write the lab report to the WI lab so that I can get the blood work done that you requested.  He is not familiar with the terms:  FIB and PRL.  Is there a full name or description of what you want for those two that would help him order the correct test?

Thank you, Sandy
