I am SO happy to hear your news! I had a great big smile on my face as I was reading it. You're way too young to have be sick and not get to do all the things teenagers are supposed to get to do. How great that you're going to play basketball this year. If you don't make varsity this year, you'll be in good shape to try again next year! It sounds like you have a real good support system and that you listen to your body.
Thanks for letting us know and keep up the good work.
