Who will join me in celebrating with a "HAPPY DANCE?" yeah Today it is 6 years since I was dx!! YIPEEEEE!!!! These last 6 years have been full of emotions, some bad but some good. I have met many new friends here and had some great times at our gatherings (speaking of which, are we ever going to have another one?) I have had way too many surgeries, had to quit my job, got lymhedema, got fat, BUT....I have gotten older (good thing!!) and I am much more beautiful on the inside tongue !!  Thanks for being here all my dear sisters!
L&H, Gail

Not only will I join you in the happy dance, I will even turn off the Godzilla marathon to do it. I am so happy for you and the six years. I'll be hoisting the tequila tonight in a toast that you have many, many more anniversaries.

Love, Jo-Ann

Congratulations Gail! I think I'll join Jo-Ann and toast to you tonite, or sooner. It's got to be after noon somewhere in the world (tee hee).

Doing the happy dance here, too. Six years is a good milestone, isn't it? Time seems to be flying by for me. They say the older you get the faster it goes and I believe that. You have been busy lately, didn't I see in another post you had moved? Hope things are quieting down now and you have more time to post. Hugs MK

Gail - What a wonderful milestone!  Six years seems so far away.  I am only 1-3/4 years out.  Best wishes to you for many, many more uneventful years.  Time to go get that drink to help you celebrate!

Good news from you, too, Gail. It is wonderful to drop in and find good news. We have all been through so much together. It is great to celebrate success stories. Hugs, Lauri

Dear Gail,
Happy 6th anniversary!  Now, that is something to celebrate!
Sending special anniversary hugs.
A gathering does sound nice, huh?  Hopefully, there will be one in our near future.
Happy Anni,

yeah  Happy, happy 6th, Gail.  I'm a little late too, but visited the site today and saw your great news.  I too enjoy the fact that I continue to age!!  The alternative is not so enjoyable.  tongue

It will be 9 years for me in September, knock wood.

Take care of yourself and even though, like Jo-Ann, I like tequila, I've decided I like apple martinis more!  So, I'll have one tonight in your honor.

Hugs, Glenda

tongue  Hi Gail,

Many hugs and congratulations! I have been wondering about you but have been gone myself. Doctor said to get my life back to normal and stop running around. OK! I guess that means I will be back on the board. There are too many things that I have been missing here.  Wren and I will celebrate tonight. I'm out of Irish Whiskey but there must be something. L&H, Di
