    I am SO happy for you! I was wondering how you have been and now I know...YOU ARE TERRIFIC! I think you need to try to attend the Palooza set for San Francisco this November. Great people to celebrate great milestones like this!

    WOOHOO! What an uplifting post!! I have been dealing with my 3rd recurrence this year BUT -- I also had the indescribable joy of being present for my eldest's high school graduation -- I felt sorry for every other parent in the room! Thank you for drawing attention to the countless joys we all get to experience....Tara
