Wow John!

How'd you do that?  Cracked your cranium this morning and you are posting in the same day.  Good grief, do you just have a zipper in the general area?

So glad to see that you are in recovery mode.  I would help bust you out if I could.

What a relief to see you posting so soon again! This "newbie" is overjoyed! I shared your postings with my husband, your strength impresses him and he is now signed up on this discussion board. Watch for his postings... baby steps I say... (FatBoy04).

Get well soon as I look forward to future discussions with you.

That's so funny -- only because I actually did it in 2007! Got dressed, said I was going downstairs for a coffee, then bolted and went to my friend's house and had a couple of drinks of rum and coke. Came back by suppertime, nurses had changed shift, so no one was the wiser.  Hope your escape runs as smoothly. :>) Great to see you posting so soon. Take care!
