    Thank you all for your concern.

    Sorry to worry you all. Cellulitis attacked my right leg. I was taken to emergency and hospitalized. I got out yesterday (4/15).
    I apologize my first communication is a little brief. I do have a lot of people to notify and my typing seems a bit slow. Let’s see what tomorrow holds.

      Martin - I was away from Hub pages while recuperating from a fall.  I am certainly fine and I am not telling you this for sympathy.  I only state this so you know why you have not heard from me in some time.  I am thankful you are on the mend and send my sincerest of blessings to you.  I always enjoy your beautiful poetry but truly appreciate your awesome sense of humor.  Sending many Irish blessing to you, my friend.  XO
