Good morning, everyone. I am back from a 2 week road trip, it's hotter than blue blazes outside, so I will be inside for the foreseeable future....
Just mowing the lawn this early morning about
melted me down. I am facing a 2 week backlog of posts and will read all of them, but cannot reply to all, nor should I....
so I'll try to cover them here, to reduce the multiple posts from me.
I'm sorry if it seems a little impersonal not replying to each, but......here goes,,,
Welcome to Healing Well to all the new folks, I'm sure by now you've discovered what a treasure and resource it is.
Congratulations to those with zero's, lows and good news of various sorts. Good news is always welcome, isn't it?
Welcome to the other side of healing and recovery for those completing treatments, surgeries, and other procedures.
Thanks to all for your contributions, knowledge sharing and encouragement for those who needed it. You folks are the greatest for support and empathy.
