After nearly 20 years, a wedding, 2 kids, 3 moves (one to another province), a divorce, and another 3 moves (in one year), and beating cancer. I'm here again. so... how YOU ...

Re: brrrrr Monday

3 to 5 km's at lunch to day - might be walking though - Need more extension cords for the Christmas lights - will probably run to the store and walk home.... Not sure a backpack full of copper is the best thing to run with :)

I don't have any experience with broken limbs at all, but the smell factor may be of concern. Are there any scratches or sores under there that could get infected? How long does it have to be on? Is it possible to get it changed if it gets too smelly or dirty?
