You're welcome.

Just back from a short stint in the hospital. They took me out on Friday night and I just returned less than an hour ago. Had unexplained chest pains and the home didn't feel equipped to rule out anything. So, off I went in an ambulance with two very nutty paramedics and an EMT! Highlight of my 2-day stay! The stress test performed actually used radioactive meds and artificially increased my heart rate til I just could take it anymore. Then more special pictures.

Since I am extremely busy in rehab with all the physical and occupational therapy, I find that I don't get to wish you all a great day before you have the great day! Hope it was and please excuse my lateness of hour with this greeting.
