    thank you all for your wishes and support. I am now learning to type again. Auito corredt can sometimes come in handy! i enjoyed doing simple things at home for couple days. I will return home next weekend to play in a poker tournament that I had won a place in. Every day I have noticeable improvement. I can even put my earrings with backs on. I can hobble around and will be home Feb. 13. Outpatent therapy is available in 3 months. i may not enen need it by that time but arrangements will be made. Keeping positiven helps as negativity will only work against you.

    No chance of getting out of exercising now Happiness, the health professionals, love to spur you on constantly. Happened to me after a big accident decades ago. They work by the way. Keep well

    Way to go Happiness! A terrific achievement. You are awesome. A clever way to celebrate 444 by substituting 4 for “a”. Wishing you a quick recovery.
