    If you mean "Shoot You' as in a recent photo of you and he together, that would be cool also... ;)

    Hi Kim,

    You didn't tell us that Mark was a Lifeguard. : )

    Hi Kim,

    I don't think he will shoot you, but I am going to miss seeing you. Selfish ain't I?

    GREAT PIC
    Kim, Mark looks great. I would have never guessed he is 54.

    More important, he looks like he is enjoying life.

    This is the best status I have seen on someone post diagnosed and treatment. The picture is great... keep the recovery going and keep having fun.

    YES YES YES YES
    YES, this is a post treatment photo...you can see Mark's neck is still a little red, and some of it is missing.
    YES, this is from our beach vacation in DE that we just were on.
    YES, I will get another picture of the two of us...waiting for my sister to send one she took at my father's 75th birthday.
    YES, Mark is a lifeguard, so to speak, in that he breathed life back into me 6 years ago after a marriage that practically sucked the life out of me.
    Celebrating Mark, and celebrating all of you,
    Love,
    Kim

    you look fine
    Hondo , I never met you so don't know ahat the old you looked like, but I would say you look fine to me. I think we all think we see our self one way and look in the mirror and see a different person . I like the picture of you and your wife, I think it is beautiful

    Perspective
    Hi Kim. I thought that was a new photo but didn't want to assume. For ,e it's really nice to see post-treatment photos. It's inspiring that Mark can be at the beach let alone enjoy it. Awesome photo.

    Best to you and Mark,

    Zoom out
    If we could zoom out on this picture, you would see he has a HUGE white guaze bandage over the hole left by the PEG that was removed the day this picture was taken. As we walked on the beach the next morning we could not decide what we would tell people if they asked: Gunshot wound or shark bite. :)
