Hey, bedamed, good to hear from you.

Margret let us know the evening you were headed in a couple of days ago, and it's wonderful to hear directly from you.

Glad to hear the pain is not too bad, and your mobile. Remember, full recovery isn't a race. It's a process. Drink, walk, rest and drink some more.

And, be assured, no one here likes it either, but we do our best to accept it.

Keep in touch --- you hear?

And thanks, many thanks for the update.
