October 10th was a 1 year anniversary of being breast cancer free. Hurray for me!
2010 I had my right rotator cuff repaired.
How many joints can you have replaced. Who was the actress, Lindsey Wagner, the bionic woman?
Excuse the attitude I am feeling a little negative. The sun is out so I will go enjoy the day. Thank you all for listening.
