Personal Message from Lisa LaRue

This is a very personal message, and I want to thank all of the people who have sent me such loving and kind messages over the pat couple of years, I really appreciate and cherish you.

After fighting off the recurrence of my Cushings Syndrome, a cyclical situation which arises in conjunction with my Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia, I am finally in remission again!!  This is very important, and exciting news.  Patients wih Cushings have a 4.6 year life expectancy without treatment.  I was fortunate enough to have a wonderful alternative health provider, and through several regimens and some herbal supplements and diet changes, I finally reached remission.  I have had several bouts with adrenal crisis, coming close to going into shock and near death on one occasion.  I still need to pay very close attention to diet, hydration, and living conditions due to the CAH, and will have to do so for the rest of my life, as there is no cure for Salt-wasting Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia.

I also was afflicted by, and diagnosed with, Frozen Shoulder about a year ago (before going into Cushing's remission), totally prohibiting me from playing keyboards, and even personal activities such as bathing, washing my hair, and dressing.  It is now at about 90% recovered - I can dress myself, and lo and behold, I have been playing the piano!!  It takes about 2 days afterwards to not have any pain in the arms, but I'm doing it, nonetheless. 

I wanted you all to know how much I've appreciated your support, and that because of the very many personal notes, I am hoping to start making music again very soon!  Knowing that many of you appreciate my music and are wanting to hear more is just as important as my own passion to play and write.  So, keep your eyes and ears open!!  I might just do a little piano track here and there...........

Love to you all,
