    Thank you Katie. I sincerely apologize for reaching out to AFIB.org, Mellanie so rapidly. My mind is overloaded with my Advanced Prostate Cancer treatment meds and effects so much that everything seems to hit me. Stage 4 Metastatic and cancer and AFIB together? 
    And I'm not in AFIB thank you God.

    depotdoug, There is no apology necessary at all. It is totally understandable that you would both reach out to Mellanie for help regarding the spammer and also be overwhelmed with what you are having to manage with your own health challenges.

    It is wonderful to know that you are not in AFIB with all that you are having to manage.

    Please know what we are thinking of you during this time. Best Katie

    Good morning Depotdoug,

     While  know nothing about the spam, I did read your post here and just want to say I wish you armfuls of good wishes as you go forward.

    I've been impressed from the start of my time here with your helpful and gracious suggestions and encouragement to people on this site.

    May today find you feeling as good as possible, may your sweet heart be calm. Kindness works secretly to help shore us up in difficult times, and you are kind.

    All the best.

    Thank you so much grandscheme, Katie, Mellannie,

    Life is better when we are together supporting each other. Sounds like I heard that in my church a few times.

    I had 45 spam  messages in my email today.  I moved them to my spam folder but now I'm worried that am future legitimate mail will go there too.

    Thanks, Doug. I hope the cancer treatment keeps going well, and that you stay afib free. 

    Mamazipp, If you marked all those messages as spam, you may have to check your spam folder for a while to retrieve messages and mark the new ones as "not spam".
