What a nice thing to say Mike -- and so well expressed. I also wish I had found this forum before my surgery, but I'm glad I found it when I did, which was about
three weeks out.
I don't remember how I found my way here but I remember it was on Superbowl Sunday, 2007.
Just before the game, I signed on with the handle, "PianoMan," because I'm an amateur piano player. I'd never used that name on the net before. Then, within about two minutes I hear Billy Joel singing the national anthem at the game! "Must be kismet," I thought.
And I was right. For me, this forum has been a source of strength, comfort -- even a good laugh once in a while. Ya can't ask for more than that.
