The luck of the Irish may just be with me today, Pat. Came back from an entire afternoon spent at the doctor's with the news that the soft tissue mass in my leg "probably" isn't malignant. Bad news is, surgery possibly as early as next week and physical therapy after, as the mass has damaged tendons. Never a dull moment.
Oh Miriam. I wish I could come up with a fairy charm for you! These health incidents have a way of putting things in perspective, and I sincerely hope that's all this one does. You are in my thoughts, in which I ever picture you sipping something to your taste in the Laurels before their turf fire. Sláinte, my friend!
Pat, I guess it's a charm if it's benign, you know? I'm trying to look on the bright side. Getting rid of the pain will be a huge plus, too. Thanks for your good wishes.
