This is going to be quick my dear sweet readers...but I just have to take the time to tell you how well I am doing these days. After that harrowing time of blood clots and such in the hospital...I am doing very well. There are 3 different nurses and social workers checking on me weekly which is a comfort, but perhaps the best medicine is my son and his girlfriend who have moved to Florida to be with me.
