Friends,

March 23rd marks 3 years post, the day I wore the mask for the last time.

I wish to thank everyone who participates in the H&N forum and all the good advice that comes from radiated heads.

Still batting NED!

Matt

    Congrats my friend

    Good job Matt, glad your no longer hiding behind the mask, 3 years is great.  You have been an inspiration to hundreds on this board and have been there since I started in April of 2012.  I know you have been a blessing to many, and your humor is first rate.  Which is as important as all the good advice you have provided folks over the years.  Thanks for sticking around, keep it up.

    Whoo Hoo Matt!!

    Three years and counting!  WTG!  You've been a source of strength for me in the last three years....proving that laughter  IS the best medicine (especially when you have me laughing at myself).  This is my big grin for today.  

    Happy anniversay....

    Doug,

    Thank you, you make me blush.  As I remember, you were providing help at the hospital.  I hope you and The Other Ditto are well.

    I caught an earlier bus than you and Phrannie, but we were all cooking just the same.

    still sticking

    Elizabeth,

    Some H&N veterans blazed the trail for me, the least I can do is drop crumbs for others. 

    Did you remember to stop and drink at “don’t forget to swallow pool”? 

    Drink and swallow often was the first, best and easiest lesson I learned here.

    Bill,

    Your nose looks to be the same size.  Yes, you pass the H&N honesty test.

    Thanks,

    P,

    I know you are grinning because it got much brighter outside. 

    I gain strength from 4% milk, cuddling up in pockets or taking a spin on the ceiling fan.

    Pet Lola and brush the horse for me.

    Normal?

    For me normal is a setting on the dryer!  3 years, that's great.  This side of the journey it doesn't seem like 3 years since your first post.  Like the others, I enjoy your humor.  Keep on keeping on.

    knock, knock

    BD,

    You know I went through a time when I was as I say “H&N emotional”; grateful to be alive and scared to death to have cancer.  It is a cruel mental and physical adventure, it is nice to hang on to a little happiness and humor.

    By the way, what are you doing in your Avatar, cancer paper work, scrap booking, taxes?  You are literally up to your neck in it.

    Carry on,

    Matt
