To all my friends here, I apologize for using this discussion forum to write this, but I have not mastered how to add the 40 or so friends that I write to on a regular basis to a "group" email yet…LOL

On Monday night at Tae Kwon Do, I slightly overstreched a thigh muscle in my right leg…well in my exuberance to do my best, I did further damage to it tonight, and am in great pain…hee hee
I cannot even sit in my desk chair and type to reply to all of your letters. Thus, this message here.
I promise to respond to all your letters as soon as I can figure out a way to "sit" without too much pain, or too many pain pills…LOL

Thank you all for your overlooking my using a discussion to get my message out to you.

This will be my last update to this…I know what your thinking…"Thank God"…LOL
As many of you now know by the replies to your emails, I am a bit better. At least I can sit and type for more than a couple of minutes at a time.
Yes, the leg is still pretty sore, but I intend to go to Tae Kwon Do tomorrow although I'm pretty sure the right leg will be sort of useless to me… hee hee
I promise to reply to everyone by this evening.
Thank you all so much for your support and outpouring of love and concern!!!

Hi John,

So glad that you are feeling better. We have missed your advice and wit. It is good to have you back. Hope you enjoyed your weekend.

You will be back on your feet (or should I say seat) in no time. Be well and take care to do as the doctor says. We will miss you, but look forward to your return.

My sincere thanks to all of you well wishers!!!! And to those that sent personal emails, I will reply as soon as I can sit for more than 5 minutes in my chair.

I had a tough time figuring out a good way to get out of bed today…LOL but I did get it done. My leg isn't much better today…the doc has me on some pretty good pain meds though..hee hee

I made the big mistake of thinking if I used it, that it would get better…WRONG.. LOL
I walked with my son 3 blocks to his doctor appointment with ihm, and thought he was going to have to carry me back home. Needless to say the doctor told me to quit trying to fix it and let it heal.

Thank you all again!!! Your thoughts are appreciated. I will up date you soon.

Ok, here is todays update. With the miracle of pain meds, I can now sit at the computer for about 10 minutes at a time…LOL So, I am starting to reply to your emails, though they may not be too coherint with what I'm saying…hee hee

Again thanks for your concern and support… you all are the GREATEST friends anyone could have!!!!
