Just wanted you to know that when I got home last night (or I should say this morning, it was 3 a.m.) how wonderful it was to lay down and not have this arrest on my shoulders. I could finally really lie down and relax. It was like I could take a good deep breath and really breath, I was finally home. Thank you so much again! T.J.
