My surgery was 26 months ago.  Had Dr appt on Monday.  Today got the relusts.  "I am still a ZERO"  I had no reason to believe that it would go up but one never knows. 
 
I am so pleased that I can report this to you guys.

Goodlife, mudbugs would put me in the hospital. Allergic so I guess I will just drink beer. :)

David, Yes looks like I am on a roll but I just take it for what it is. A great day in Cajun Land.

Arnie, Clocknut, Steve and TimG thanks for the good wishes. I hope them for you guys as well.
