My surgeon has cleared me. This means, in two weeks pending my physical, I can play on the big trucks again. This is quite emotional because it has been over 3 years since I fought a fire and just rode the trucks with my brothers. All the guys at the firehouse were behind me through this all. They are my second family and have been completely supportive of it all. It is equally as emotional with you guys because I feel like I Have known you all forever yet never met any of you. I probably would have been a lot worse if I haven't found this site. So, with that, I say god bless you all and I hope that every single one of you find your happiness and health.

Love me!

Yeah Anthony,

Congratulations, you did it! I would love to get back to my career too. Maybe some day after all my travels if I stay OK. To see some of my travels and me google Lahey Clinic, click on Burlington, and type in Rosemary Jablonski in the tiny search box. I think I was in their summer 2009 donner issue.

All my best. Rosemary
