I was busy battling cancer for 9 months, but am all better now and ready to dive into the forum once again.Jim!
This is a bad thing. Not just the illnesses that so many are fighting right now, here on the boards, but that most of us don't know unless someone else is really tight with that poster and mentions something.
I have a couple of groups in Yahoo!, and over the years there are several people that I've grown quite close to. We've set up a system whereby their significant others log on and let us know if there's trouble "at home" so that if nothing else, we can all send good thoughts along. Do you think we can do that here? I know first hand what it means to have a support group who, if nothing else, posts a stupid joke now and again to help me through stuff. And now there are months of love and affection that I have to make up for with Jim!
I'm so glad you're back and that your fight was successful! At the very least, you know some of us wondered where the hell you went!
