PAUL SABITTINI AND I AM PRESENTLY INVOLVED IN A TRIAL STUDY FOR NEW MEDICATION, THAT IF IT WORKS, IT WILL BE PUT OUT FOR PUBLIC USE.

Barbara you are in my prayers God Bless

Barbara,

You have two bright, wonderful children and a loving husband that need and depend on you. You have a succesful practice and those employees and their families depend on you. You have great close friends and a caring family that loves and needs you. One of the most important lessons I have learned by watching you is… “it is not important how many times you fall as long as you get right back up, brush the dust off and try again”.

We love and admire you. Time to brush off the dust and…
