Subject: RE: Jane's Rainbow: for all needing support & comfort
Sending good thoughts, and especially, {{{{hugs}}}}, pete. What a roller coaster it is, indeed.

Glad the eyes are better, Rap, and yeh, nasty bugs in hospital. As soon as Medicare and a medigap policy kick in, in November, my first medical visits will be to try to fix trigger finger and ulnar nerve related hand problems. At the rate you are going, you will soon be a regular bionic man! Pat faring ok at present?

Allergies seem to be hitting many of us harder this year than usual. I'm not much of one generally to take over-the-counter meds., but have learned my lesson with spring allergies - take the antihistamines and Musinex to keep it under control or risk developing secondary sinus and lung infections that can result in real and serious illness.

Mom is doing really well 5 weeks post shoulder replacement. Doing gentle exercises at home but no vigorous PT for probably another 3 weeks. Off of pain meds, has slightly better range of motion even before really starting PT, and most importantly, is not in the severe, chronic pain she had been experiencing for the 6 months prior to the surgery.

How are the chooks, Maeve? And how are you and TL faring? Your lungwort and crested irises have been very happy here this spring.
