An informant has told me that today might be the day of Tanya's birthday...  That being so, I felt I should wish her a very fine birthday!
She is a good resource on this forum for both information and support...  A blessing for all...
Thank You and God Bless!

IzzyBlizzy,  (Your name makes me imagine a sparkling, bubbly blizzard....)

I hope your birthday was nice and full of friends and loved ones. 
I just wanted to take this opportunity to tell you thanks
   - for being such a friend to all of us.

It was 11 months ago today that I had my surgery.  Your attention to those "here", especially when we were lost in the "news" before treatment or fighting the next battle after treatment-
    - your attention and care mean a lot to us all.

Thanks Tanya!  Your Friend,
