Didn’t even know that you were having a problem until I read this today. Remember my friend 1 foot in front of the other. Regardless of how much you do, something is better than nothing. You take care of yourself and enjoy the Bojangles sandwich. Can you mail me some chicken, lol. Take care my friend, Joe
