Great news on the health front (I count echo's news as health news!) and job front--yay, FORT! And oh man, I cannot imagine not being able to scratch my back for months---it gets itchy just on normal days, and I have both an upstairs and a downstairs back scratcher---those Asian ones that looks like a little hand on a stick. Would they fit inside a body cast? I suppose not or it wouldn't be tight enought to do its job.
Anyway, congrats to all.
