Hi All,
    The steroid injections went much better than anticipated. Several people
told me that is the way it had been for them, but I anticipated much worse.
Slept last night from 1:30 AM to 3:15 AM. The worse part was that I couldn't
have anything to drink after 2:30. So, no coffee to keep me company. (;-}
    I will get the other two sets of injections. I was near pain/trouble
free with my arms and hands until about 6 PM. I sure hope that after the 3rd
session, the relief will last longer.
    I did manage to putter around in the garden long enough to plant 6
Celebrity tomatos, 4 jalapenos, the last 2 Bertha Bell plants, and 3
tomatillos that I had started from seed.
    I think I'm done now with tomatos. I still need to plant yellow wax
beans, yellow squash, Zucchini, and melons.
    Thanks to all for your kind thoughts and prayers.
