Hi Larry--What a relief that the treatment your mom needs has been approved.\r\n\r\nThe cake decorating class sounds awesome. Any cakes in the works at home?\r\n\r\nAnd, I'm curious: Do you plan these great outings?

Missed putting on Wednesday that mom received her flu shot, Pneumo-Poly booster, and Td booster.
