    Thanks for the bear hug! I've been taking it easy to day and applying heat to my neck. It's doing pretty good right now, just hope it's not back tomorrow morning. I have exercise class.

    Oh, thank you so much, Laurel! I've had a nice hot shower with some ginger & orange shower gel; I took some Ibuprofen which has taken the headache away; I've done some yoga: I've drunk a spiced green tea I had for Xmas; and now I'm enjoying a super-spicy vegetable stir-fry! Fingers crossed I can kick it back!

    PS - glad to know you have a time-scale for your operation.
