Kappy GET WELL SOON. No fun having to deal with that. Hope they caught the nasty cells early. One of my close friends had that experience 2 years ago. Had a good result. No more fear of PSA test results.
Hope you can find some fellow boaters in you area to say "Hey Kappy, How about joining me for a sail". I know if you were out near the PacNW we could make that accommodation happen in a heart beat.
Get well. And I think you are treating the Momma Duck a bit to nicely. This condition you had was not an issue before the ducks took up a home in your boat. We could say it is the "Ducks Fault". (that is a thing we like to say here in Oregon, because it often is true, Go Beavers!).
Tks, for the kind thoughts, John. They called it stage T1, so we think it's early. As far as Momma Duck goes, based on what I've learned, the ducklings should hatch this week. Means Momma was still laying when we found her. With regard to sailing, none of my co-workers have sailboats, but several have expressed interest in coming out while I recover. And several folks have strongly urged that I not go solo this season, so that's even more drive to find some new sailors. Again, tks.
