I really appreciate your empathy, but I didn't mean to make you that sad. Sorry. I should have been more guarded. I did finally talk Mom into getting a cane at least( save the wrapping up into the closet for now), but getting cooperation from her on such medical/safety issues is a major problem and stressor.Thank you so much for caring, but again didn't mean to put a downer on you. Keep on with your updates from Bean Town. I'm sure you get the fact that we all love to hear from you. The challenges you're facing now can seem daunting at times, but I know with your attitude and ability you'll do great and look back on this as a most exciting period in your life. There is a method to their madness btw, i'm certain you're aware of. Btw, my email above was created and has already been used several times for communications and sharing of various sorts with forum regs. Time for this old nite owl to hit the sack - leave my computer on, running another video project.Stuff like that is a great distraction.
Big smile and a hug to you !
