***A huge thank you for all the kind words that were sent my way last week.  I am happy to report I am feeling much much better and had a wonderful 1st day back.  I apologize for the lack in grading and I appreciate your patience as I used the time off to heal.  I did do grading while I was home and have updated the online gradebooks accordingly.***
