Good to hear from you Kevin, even though you bring bad news. Growing old is not for sissys but some of us are much more fortunate than others. Sometime it seems we are each playing from a different stacked deck of cards. My younger brother is facing the "reverse prosthesis' shoulder surgery as soon as he is sufficiently recovered from his back surgery. I am doing quite well when compared to my three brothers and have a lot to be thankful for. Hope you can find some positives to dwell on.
Stop in when you can.
