Explanation of symbols: 
  " = trill, generally starting on upper neighbor. On 8th and dotted 8th 
      notes, consider a shorter, 3-note figure - main note to upper neighbor 
      and back to the main note.
  , = mordent, main note to lower neighbor and back to the main note.

Suggested simplification (if need be):

      |__5__0__|
      |__3_____|
