Hello Maureen. I'm so sorry to hear of the loss of your daughter's Border Collie. What a great picture of her! Our old Aggie has developed Epilepsy, which is aging her (she's 13). The loss of our pet companions is so difficult. My condolences to your daughter, and to you as well. Trudy

Maureen, oh my, with our frigid weather, it's hard for me to imagine your heat! I hope you get a break soon. Yay, tennis! As for the tablet to make me better making me feel worse in the meantime, that's exactly the situation. Reading some on my Kindle, waiting for time to pass...

Hi Maureen, thanks for your comment. I am definitely taking it one day at a time; right now I don't feel too well. My antibiotic, Doxycycline, keeps me off-balance, but I'll be through with it in 5 days and then should feel a lot better. Here in my area, we're having snow and frigid weather; I understand Australia is hot! I hope you and Renae are staying comfortable. Trudy
