It's good to hear back from you.  Please continue to check in with us and let us know about your progress.  We're here to support you in any way we can.
Yes, it's been a long journey from the days of the Boston Beaneaters baseball team, but Boston is a great city with a superb baseball team, as evidenced in recent years with two World Championships.  And Red Sox fans are big-hearted, too, as shown by forgiving Bill Buckner for his World Series blunder in 1986 and welcoming him back on opening Day this year. 
Take care and hang in there...Tim
