      Hey Bonnie!

      I can’t use KimJ for some reason, so Kimmer will have to suffice.

      I am glad that you are getting a scan done…no wagging of finger here, but TAKE GOOD CARE of yourself!  My grown up son is currently with us recovering from his second subdural hematoma…he fell at work on Jlune 28th (Barnes & Noble Booksellers) and did some more damage to his already damaged brain.  (He is doing great but had the anti-seizure meds were causing non-convulsive seizures, go figure, and it wasn’t diagnosed for 12 days by the spot-on neurosurgery folks at a hospital that is supposed to be a good one.)  Anyways, he is back on Dilantin which never gave him any problems before. 

       

      You would thing that a book store would be a safe place to work.  We are seeing cognitive function return although his gait is a little off.  I am pretty serious about him only going out into the world with a helmet from now on!  I have been told by his neurologist that second head traumas are not uncommon.  Geeesh.

       

      So it is good to see you and that is a really lovely photo of you for your login or  whatever it is called.  You do have a busy schedule and I am sending the very best thoughts your way.

       

      Take good care, K.
