Please forgive me for not commenting or responding to comments over the last few days.  My husband fell on steps with black ice and did a lot of damage to his right leg when it twisted backward behind him. They operated to repair the torn muscles and tendons that support his knee, and it will be a long recovery taking about four months.  Needless to say, PS has been and will be on the 'back burner' for now, but I will try to catch up when I can.  I've been back and forth to the hospital all week.  He'll be 80 in June, and we're praying that the healing goes well and his mobility will come back with therapy. Many thanks to all who have left such uplifting and supportive comments on my poems, and congrats to all recent contest winners.  Sandra.

Dear Sandra: Sending best wishes for Bill's recovery. I know it will be a struggle ahead to regain mobility. When I fractured my femur above the knee in 2010 I was in Rehab for strengthening and a month of intensive physio. I found that walking in waist deep water in our pool was most helpful for regaining balance. Best thoughts to you both. Love, SuZ

You will be very busy, my dear. My Mom, who is 80, also fell recently and broke her 2 lower arm bones at the wrist. It has been a long road. Falling is the pits in the winter of seasons and the winter of life. Get help if you need it! May your patient be of positive nature as he battles thru pain and limitations with your support. I'll be praying for perfection in attitudeS and healing. Hugs ... CayCay
