    Geeze, sorry I missed this thread completely. I haven't been gittin around here much lately.

    Anyhoo, I just wanted to say that I'm glad the tests were negative and you can get on with your life again.

    I know what an anxiety attack it was for you because I went through the same thing. On a my third 12 in a row about 2am in a warm NICU one night I made one little slip trying to direct a needle to a cube. The patient was positive for everything and I was simply numb for months. My wife and I didn't need protection cause I most definitely wasn't in the mood.

    Couldn't have pulled a pin out of my butt with a tractor:chuckle


    I did make it back the the great state of Texas! I'm not likely to even think of hitting golfballs till the dang temp gets above thirty.

    Soon as it hits 40 ish again, I'm off to the Palmer academy in Frisco.
