I would like to wish everyone here the Happiest of Holidays, whatever that holds for you. For me, time spent with those I love is the answer. I truly appreciate everyone here and the contributions made by each of you, all of which inspire me, either to make me more thankful that my cancer could definitely be worse, or strive to continue to have patience with the remnants of surgery. Thank You.

Merry Christmas Lungman
You know what is wonderful about HW? We all share in the ups and the downs and days like today we seem to be enjoying what life is truly about and not allowing cancer to dictate our day.
