    Sorry you are out of action, Daniel: I have been away a lot myself due to renovating. I miss reading and writing but sometimes real life takes automatic precedence. Sending healing thoughts. SuZ

    Danny, hope things are getting better for you. A week has passed since you posted. For a busted wrist, 6 weeks sounds pretty fast, good luck and I hope that comes true. I won't make any really smart-A$$ comments since if you're down to one finger you'd probably show me the middle one. : p

    Mend well and quickly, Danny. If you have a recorder, save your poetic thoughts until you can type.

    Oh, no! Couldn't have happened to a better poet. I fell two days before Christmas (fortunately not on my head or hands), and was sore for a month. I commiserate with all who fall. Keep your chin up.

    Why in the world did you wanna do that? You know my Mom just did that, in January, and has had no fun with it, at all! I don't know which finger you are typing with, but keep it clean and know that healing prayers are raining down in Arkansas! I miss you when your light isn't on at Soup! Hugs, Danny ... CayCay

    My doctor still cant understand how I managed to twist both ankles and sprain too ligaments..It was like a ballerina squatting on to.the ground and not.standing up.. :)I cried with pain..and laughed with my silliness :)

    I am so sorry about this, Daniel. I did not realize how bad things were for you even before the fall. And guess what? I have sprained my hand somehow. So I can type but I can't lift heavy things and do certain movements with right hand. It's awful to not have full use of one's hand that is the primary hand. I feel your pain!
