Wow, didn't expect all of this - I appreciate the kind words from all of you that have taken time to post, means a lot to me. . .
Yeah, the Pay Forward thing - easy for me to do, almost automatic - because of the experiences I've had here at HW in my own early stages of my journey. I couldn't have gotten through this without you guys and gals, which is what makes it simply 2nd nature to help the newbies. While I don't have the medical/technical knowledge of say a Tall Allen or Casey, I try to make that up in enthusiasm and sincerity. At the end of the day we're all simply part of a Band of Brothers/Sisters. . . .
Special Lady - thanks, and here's hoping you guys can continue avoiding HT
Redwing - yep, I agree we do need positive posts to balance out the not so positive things that can be out here
GOP - you were (are) one of the Brachy Brothers that was so instrumental in my beginnings here - here's to another .1 for you next month
Foxrun - thanks and right back at ya
Gunfighter - thanks and looking forward to hooking up with you next month for sure
Runner Lady - figured you'd recognize the "runner shirt" - continued best to you and hubby
Tud - special thanks to you as one of those that early on encouraged me to be open to treatment options
Clock - indeed, where does the time go - I still remember our first dinner get-together a year ago!
Davidg - thanks, and here's to another bit of great news for you next month
Susan - I always look forward to your early morning posts from over the pond
81GyGuy - thanks, I'm humbled. . .
