From the moment I woke up early this morning I find that I am surrounded by more friends and love than I realized. I had many sparkgoodies on my page, emails from far-away friends, my mother, my sisters. Then my friends showed up and "kidn... Read more

First of all, I'm happy to report that my knee is healing really well. I am working out in the pool with it, and have gotten a lot of bend in it. I am walking without a cane except at the barn or when I am on uneven ground. Big progress! Jus... Read more

I am finding that I am slowly being able to do small things again, but I pushed myself a bit hard the last 2 days, and I'm sore in my shoulders and neck. So I am postponing my hair appointment today. I hope I can reschedule it soon, but I just... Read more
