    To all the people who have signed up for the Affiliate Summit Mentor Program for Las Vegas, January 2009. I would like to offer my apologizes for having to step down from heading up the program in January. As we all know, things happen in life when you least expect it. My Mother, who is in advanced stages of Lupus, has had both knees replaced and a hip replaced, she now needs to get one of the knees replaced again, but there is a problem, she has found out she has MRSA infection in her foot and it has moved up to her knee. Her Doctor is afraid it could also be in the bone so they are going to do a bone scan soon to find out for sure. Because of her Lupus and her low immune system, this staph infection could be very hard to overcome. She has had to take a round of antibiotics that is making her very ill and weak, and she is supposed to take several more weeks of these strong antibiotics. My Mother is a very strong determined woman, but I can see she is becoming weaker by the day. I feel that I need to focus all of my time to help my Parents since I am the only one of their children that lives in the area to help. My Parentís own and operate an RV Park, if my Mother has to be hospitalized, which is a possibility; the nearest major hospital is over 100 miles from home. I will need to be able to help my Dad with the RV Park, and take turns staying with my Mom while she is hospitalized.
    I was looking very forward to getting to do the Mentor Program again, but I know you all understand that family comes first. I hope to stay involved with future Affiliate Summit Mentor programs if things work out to where I can. I just have a feeling I need to be here and focus my time and energy in helping my Parents during this time.
    I am sure Shawn and Missy will let you know more about the continuation of the Mentor Program soon.

    Regretfully,
    Teresa Caldwell

    Wow, I haven't been on Abestweb in a while and I read all of your well wishes, thoughts and prayers, I am so touched by all of you. Thank you all so very much. Karen Garcia, thank you so much for the cookies and brownies you sent, and Kim Salvino thank you so much for the card you sent.

    My Mother still has the infection, she is weak, but is a fighter. The bad thing is she she fell one night and had to crawl to the bedroom to wake my Dad, she broke her sternum. Yet still everyday I go into her house and she has the biggest smile on her face, she hasn't let any of this break her spirit. It is so very hard to see your parents age. Yet my Mom is still teaching me how to see the best of life.

    Sorry to hear about her setback. It's a good thing she can keep that sunny disposition and strong outlook. A new prayer for both of you!
