Welcome to HW, even if belated. In another thread, neoman said:

I never got a new member welcome thing either. Did you..?

Since I had Bladder Cancer and though they detected PC, I guess they powers that be do not consider me wholly one of you guys!! (Just a ha ha). rolleyes They must have felt sorry since I post some on the AUS AMS 800 topic threads..


Sorry if I missed you, I try to welcome everyone when they first post, but sometimes they are buried in threads and I don't see them. So welcome, in any case and my apology's.

Oh gosh, now you got me all red faced cool . I posted that mostly on my  level of humor.. But thank you all.. I have posted quite a bit I think on the AUS AMS 800 topic since that is what I have in common with these other guys!!

 

 Since Healing Well does not have a Bladder Cancer chat room and also since there are very few BC guys or gals that get a AUS, I find this topic to be more accessable here.

Thank you all for letting me in..and to James C. for the nice and belated greetings!!
