My daughter had her fingers separated today and was to
come home after the day procedure, but she is back in
hospital hopefully only overnight. The fingers were in
plaster and the skin graft stretched between the two.
Surely this will be the end of it for her. Luckily the
family are all pitching in.
<><><><> A Little Poem called "This Day"
This is the beginning of a new day,
I have been given this day to use as I will,
I can waste it or use it for good.
What I do today is important because I am
exchanging a day of my life for it.
I pledge to myself that it shall be, gain not loss;
good not evil; success, not failure, in order
that I shall not regret the price I paid for it.

Doctor Bloom who was known for miraculous cures for arthritis
had a waiting room full of people, when a little old lady
completely bent over, shuffled in slowly, leaning on her cane.
When her turn came, she went into the doctor’s office and
amazingly emerged within half an hour walking completely
erect with her head held high.
A woman in the waiting room who had seen all of this walked up
to the little old lady and said, “It’s a miracle. You walked in
bent in half and now you are walking erect. What did the Dr do?”
She answered, “Miracle, shmiracle – he gave me a longer cane."
