Ditto! I hope Nick's hand infection healed and he DIDN'T have to have IV antibiotics!
hugs and love (and also hoping you've had better weather in London than I've had in Leeds! ) Update when you can, thinking of you all

Hi Tracy, Robin and Lauren!

Thank you so much for thinking of us, dear friends. Nick's hand is better! It sure took a long time for the swelling to go down and the infection to go away, but I think that is because his circulation is so poor. His pressure sore is healed as well. That was from his rib cage sitting on top of his pelvic bone on one side and rubbing. Tracy, does Megan have this problem with scoliosis? So he is doing great now. Right now he's in his room wtih his Dad and his helper and they're watching the football (soccer) finals between Spain and Germany. Big excitement! Tomorrow morning I go in to the hospital for an injection into my lower spine with cortisone. Years of lifting my sweetie have taken their toll I guess. I'm sure I'll be fine after that. Meantime, my DH and I went to Wales for the weekend and stayed friends who have an very old stone house in the mountains. We had log fires in the evening and great dinners and walks during day. Their neighbour had mare who had a foal only a week old! It was sooooo lovely to be in the country. So that is all my news..... hope you are all well and that your families are too!!!

Many hugs, Donna xox

The weekend sounds great - I have never been to Wales either, but as I am in England I have less of an excuse than Robin and Lacy! hope the cortisone helps your back. How is Natalie also? is she in the school system here or..?

Glad Nick is doing so well. That weekend away does sound marvelous.

I HAVE been to Wales (Cardiff) and my thought on Wales was... buy some vowels!!!

Well, I have been to England and Scotland but not Wales or Ireland. I spent a semester in England when I was in college...Wroxton College (owned and operated by Fairleigh Dickinson University in NJ). It is housed in Wroxton Abbey at Wroxton near Banbury in Oxfordshire. Loved it! There really is a Banbury Cross! You know...Ride a **** horse to Banbury Cross to see a fine lady on a white horse...with rings on her fingers and bells on her toes, she shall have music wherever she goes. And while there, we spent a weekend in Edinburgh, Scotland. Scotland was beautiful.
