The gang is all here.

Jen,

Welcome back. You are the last one to make it back into the barn from this class. Wow, it has been some kind of week. Apron. Hmmmm. I think I need to come up with a better name for mine. How about Dampening Body Armor? I like that. You can have an apron, I will have a BDA. There is a fairly new (less than 10 years?), nice med called Procrit (EPO) to stimulate red blood cells commonly prescribed for cancer and surgery patients with hemo below 8 (I think). You see it on TV sometimes. Talk to your doc about it if you are still dragging. It is like a one to two week program for post surgicals.

I hope that pain wears off soon. I have been pretty sore (more than usual) for the last two days. Gimping around with my left leg lifted up. It is either (A) sympathy pains for all of you gals or (B) the result of enormous pressure pain resulting from a chopped BBQ sandwich for lunch and a large pizza I ate for dinner yesterday. Then I flipped to fruit and veggies today. I turned into a Zeppelin. Horrible tummy pains. Maybe some of all of the above.

I spent the day down at Quintana Beach today with the wife and kiddos. It is not as nice as Padre but close. I was thinking about you throughout the day. Glad to hear you are back in the game.

We will have a lot to talk about all week.

All,

Rest, Rest, Rest. It has been a very, very long week.
