Hi

My thanks to all the members who made a very devastating health problem much easier to deal with.

Gerry, so glad you decided to unlurk and join us. Make sure you keep us updated on your trial, and it would help if you told us your history so far. What's your stats, etc? Again, welcome

If you are trying to add your signature, with your stats, you will have to check the add signature box each time, otherwise the default is to not add the sig.
