Welcome @shirleyrawlins, No reason, just checking to see if there was a proofreader out there somewhere to keep me honest. 🙃. Thanks for catching it. I stand corrected and will fix it.

Do you mind sharing what brought you to Connect?

John - You have a great sense of humor as does the one who caught the typo! I hope you don’t mind if I might borrow your response sometime, or a version of it. As you and I both know, Peripheral Neuropathy doesn’t just affect our feet but our hands as well. I often give up on correcting typos and grammar that my spellcheck doesn’t catch or incorrectly changes. I have spent more time making corrections to a post than on my first draft of it. For the sake of time management, I have often deliberately abandoned attempts to correct some things hoping it slips by. But now when people have lighthearted fun (some of my typos have been hilarious), I would love to have a fun response like yours! As for the newsletter you mention in your post in this thread from 5 years ago, I’ll admit I’ve never heard about it! I’ve only been on here a few years and I’m not a Mayo patient, but I’m going to look for it and see if I can subscribe to it. As always, thanks for all the information sharing you provide for us!

John, my keyboard/software often types too instead of to. Especially lately. Along with other irritating anomalies. Scan for viruses. There's one in my laptop I can't remove yet.
But take heart that when the rest of us see a typo/spelling/grammar error, we don't care. Most of use are just glad we can type our message.
