Merv,

Glad to have you back. I, too, was a little concerned. If you need anything, please give me a shout.

Hi Merv,
I was very worried about you.
I am happy your back safe and sound.
I am still having trouble with my medications, sleep and vision.

Talk with you soon,
Lynnie

I don't have the laptop hooked up with my e-mail address, so this is why I am on Peter's computer.
Take care,
Lynnie
