    Long time gone, may be back around again...

    Hello all, been gone from forums in general for quite a while. Between keeping a company together in a sliding economy, a major move and change in our life (we now live on a boat again), helping my wife with her major health problems and situations with an aging mother I have really had to prioritize my time and attention.

    Hopefully I can show up some more again around here and get re-aquainted again. The business looks to be on a busy and even keel again. The wife is stable. We're happily settled aboard and I have a new AR. So looking forward to joining in from time to time again.

    Thanks for asking dr_cmg! The love of my life is pretty stable. Summers are hard on her because extremes of temp are bad for her MS. We had some leg spasticity this summer and some small issues with occasional intestinal paralysis but things have cleared up a lot now. She's still able to walk short distances, talk and eat softer foods for which she is very thankful. Imagine clear broth and liquid vitamins for two years!

    She loves the boat and we've managed one sailing day so far, a big celebration!! Hopefully will do some more soon. We take each day as it comes and enjoy it when we can. She's loving the cooler weather right now since she can be outside some.
