Sonny, that is all great news. For the bad news that you have endured, you have been showered with good news too on different fronts.
I figured you would be a good slave for the women, glad that Lynn and friend had such a good time.
Congratulations on your son's graduation, that will make any parent proud.
And the VA, I am so happy for you. I still haven't heard another word in over 2 months, so tommorow, absolutely going to my county Vet's office and let them help me get an update. No, still never got around to doing the phone thing like you did. Not very effective on the phone to be honest. My local office begs to let them do all the work, so I will take them up on it on the morning.
I was trying to remember, did I apply before you, or was it the other way round? I think our original filings were close, I think mine was late October, I was about
halfway through radiation if I remember.
I am very happy for you, I will take joy in anyone's good news.
