Excellent!!  I think God compensates us for losses.  The blind seem to
excel with audio and plain logic, those who are physically handicapped
seem to develop mentally and spiritually.   So coffee may be your
compensation until your body wins its fight.
I did the garlic thing and it truly works - instantly almost.   I had an
interesting bit of hospital food yesterday - ever have radio active
oatmeal?  Tasted like hospital food - wet cardboard.
John - loving life in the slow lane
