The doctor yesterday put me on muscle relaxers which I hated to take, but a nurse friend of our family gave me a stern warning to take them, so I am obeying. (I’ve not taken commercial medicines for about 10 years. — And this relaxer-plus-pain-medicine has caffeine in it, go figure.) A professional masseuse came in last night and gave me a massage, which I think will help the muscles keep from freezing up on me. I’m a bit sore this morning, to be expected, I guess.

Vicki talked to her mother last night, said she sounded much better. Is getting more mobile. May be able to go home Thursday if she continues to improve.
