A couple of people have inquired re my back problems of earlier this summer: I'm doing much better and I'm up and doing well. I'm doing some PT right now and I'm feeling the best I've felt all year.
Having a little down time was actually great. I had time to find all of my favorite doo-wop and surfer music videos on YouTube. And I found Lesley Gore too! So in spite of the sore back, I had some fun too.
