Hi Marg, I hope you are feeling better by now. It is too bad about the sick leave for teachers, it seems like all employers have decided that if they limit sick leave, people will just stop getting sick, which is of course ridiculous.
I met "4cm in Pacific Northwest" (4) at the meeting, along with several others, both new cases and old hands. It would have been great if you could have made it - next time for sure. The Tai Chi was interesting, but the round robin of "tell us your AN story" was the most interesting, with all kinds of stories to tell. Hopefully some of the people there will be dropping in on this forum as well. And 4 seems to be doing well, by the way.
