    Hi Jill,

    Thanks for the heads up on the webinar! I will try to get on with them. I am doing well. Slower, but that is probably my age as well as the HCM. Still working, which is what they recommended for me to keep active. All of my children as well as grandchildren have been checked. So far, so good! I keep saying my prayers about that!

    How are you doing? I have not been on the site for some time, so I am out of touch with the happenings. I have received the notices for the trial studies, but, age seems to exclude me from most of them! Can't fight that one! LOL!

    Thanks again for reminder,
