Jay I finished the hustle and bustle by way of my daughter....she hit the stores Sunday morning, with four wheel drive if needed, before the parking lots in CT were cleared of the ice and snow from Saturday. Picked up the remaining gifts and the wrapping paper.

Now off to the doctor at Yale today for PFT and check-in and up with primary doc for lungs. Oh and bloodwork, no appt. goes without at least one stick.

Have a good day.
