Hi, All,
I testified in front of our State Legislatures yesterday it went well. I am going to try to add the link but if it doesn't work go to LasVegasnow.com, look for story of Video Local woman testifies or something like that. It's on their website.
It passed the first vote in the Assembly now it goes to the Senate.
Thinking of all of you and all our kids I have just been overwhelmed and BUSY, I go see George Anderson next week I will let you know how that goes.
 
 Local Woman Testifies Against Prescription Drug Abuse
Hope it works, but you can see it on their web site.
Thanks,
Dottie

I want you to know...that you are as beautiful in film as you are here in our group.
I am wishing you ONLY the BEST in your journey.

Take Care DEAR DOTTIE,

Hi Dottie, I just got done watching the show.  Once again you did a wonderful job.  Have you thought about running for political office.  You are a natural.  Congratulations on a job so well done.

You have accomplished so much in Tammie's honor.  I know she is looking down saying go Mom, Go.

Hi Dottie,

Keep going!  I wish Cory would have had someone like you fighting for him.  I still feel that the painkillers contributed in a large part to his state of mind.

My thoughts are with you.

Thanks to each and everyone of you. It is your friendship and caring that has helped me find the strength to keep going.

This journey as we all know is really lonesome at times.

Thank you my friends,

Way to go Dottie! You did an excellent job! I have a friend who recently died after being released from the hospital after surgery. The autopsy showed an overdose of prescription meds, or a fatal interaction of drugs. I am so tired of the indiscriminate prescribing of drugs that goes on all the time. I have had to refuse to take some of them at times, and feel I did make the right decision. I have so many conditions that I am being treated for that I often worry about interactions or overdoses. Thanks again for your relentless effort to bring this to the attention of people who need to know and hopefully, will respond! Hugs-Lonnie (From the Main Board)

Eloquent and well delivered.  Amazing how the cause becomes more important than the pain at the time.  To speak without the tears and have that constant glench in the back of the throat that threatens to strangle is amazingly hard.  I'm glad you are finding purpose in it all.  You are a wonderful speaker, a beautiful woman and a strong advocate!
