If this has been done before I apologize. I would like to pay tribute to the men and women of this forum. At a time when so many people have little or no time for the other person this place is an oasis. I know I have family and friends that will support me and will be their in my darkest time. However, they don't understand for the most part what i'm going through and so it's very hard to share these difficult times. Wonderful people such as bluebird, biker90, swimom, and so many more have given me hope and support at a very crucial time in my life. On the days leading up to the surgery you gave advice and reassurance and much needed humor. Following the surgery you all have celebrated my victory and still gave support to the ongong battles that come with the operation.
I have felt free to express my anger, fears, joy and douts always knowing that I would get honest and straight forward feedback. I may never meet any of the wonderful people in this forum but I wanted to in someway express how grateful I have been. I would've made it through this surgery and my life without you but it would not have been as easy nor would I have met true heros in this world. I'm not the most eloquent of writers but please accept this heartfelt expression of friendship and gratetude from me
