So glad to hear! I think of his success story often and so enjoyed the video you posted earlier this year. Good to see him enjoying himself so! Thanks also for the kind words you had for my daughter earlier today. It's easy to worry about every little thing. I guess we're all just used to the other shoe dropping and it's going to take some time to not jump to the worst case scenario every time things aren't wonderful. Of course, we will keep an eye on things but we need to learn to breathe a bit and learn to take things in stride. Recovery has its ups and downs but so far it's been mostly up. Appreciate seeing and hearing about good end results! ~Lynn
