Thanks for the hugs. Give your wife and yourself one from Bear and I. I wanted to make another reply on here since I did not check the box for reply postings on my other one :) but since I am here, will make a comment...
Hope this comes accross with a smile the way it is intended. . .
I was thinking that your scar-tissue maker is stubborn!! Kind of goes along with your diligence in attitude and perseverence--just seems to be "who you are" evrything just keeps going no matter what. Looking forward to day that you and your scar-tissue maker can live in agreement and peace. Silly I know, intended to give you a smile in the midst of your trial.
Reminding you that you will never know the amount of encouragement that is being reaped from your "paying forward" investment.
