    Re: Staph Infection

    So sorry about the name thing. I do hope, Jim, that you are doing better. From the sounds of your last post, you are.

    Glenn, I am also glad that you are also doing well. I think I was a bit on the sleepy side the day I posted. Hope we all had a good laugh.

        Wow - I am so HAPPY that you got through that. WHEW your posts just prior to the surgery were very very scary indeed!

        I feel the same way in hospital or even at the dentists or anywhere... at their mercy and sometimes it just feels like I'm so much cattle they're pushing towards the shoot. Pretty out of control and miserable feeling.

        So happy you made it through alright. Great news.

          Yes Donna, it was amusing and it's good we can all joke about such things.
          Every great thing that has ever happened since the beginning of time has started as a single thought in someones mind.
          So if you are capable of thought then you are capable of great things
          Good luck and stay well.
