Tom C, I hope that works out for you. I think I might have some circulation stuff going on too. Probably should get it checked out.

Been gone fro a couple of days,, I was @ V.A. Ann Arbor, I have a blockage in my right leg, and surgeon could not get to it.. so In a couple of weeks he going in frm another angle,,,, seems the dye they use is radio active so the can track blood flow,, but you can only have so much at a time or kidney damage will result. mean time some discomfort.  But I gotta give praises to the Staff there almost like going to a resort. if you need something and at all possible they get it for you.

I think "Reflective" Memorial Day does it for me.
