Frank, We pray for Cathy and recovery.  Good Health to us all.

Problems for oldtimers are scary.

Dave, you're in the mail

Frank, we can deal with most things but not when our loved ones are hurting.  Ibuprofen can be hard on the stomach. FYI, just be aware.  Glad you have a plan.

Good afternoon Troopers ... ..

Took Cathy to the ER, Saturday afternoon, to get her left leg checked out. She'd been having pain and heat for several days.  They did an UltraSound/ Sonogram on the leg and confirmed that she had Thrombo-Phlebitis. About the 3rd time for her to have a flare up, in the past 30 years. Prescribed 600mg Ibuprofen, Use of a heating pad and keep it elevated.

Had a follow up with her Primary Care Doc this morning. Doing good, to continue the meds and heat/rest  and another follow up in 3 weeks.

Hope the guys trying to contact Wayne's family have some success.

Enjoy the day, take care, Toujours Pret!

Harry and Dave;

I sent Wayne's nephew a friend request, also figured a way to send a message. We'll have to wait and see what happens.

I will try to send him a friend request to see if he will accept it.
