WOW! I didn't know "what" I was missing and how much I needed "it" until I met some of you, The SemiColons, this weekend at the ColonPalooza events. What a warm, welcoming, tough, bright, inspirational, fun-loving, hug like you mean it gang! (I could go on!) Five and a half years ago when first diagnosed with Stage 3 CC I was unable to find anything like this, and since I have been doing so well didn't think I needed anything like this. If it weren't for a scare back in December that served as the catalyst for me to post a messsage and the replys received as a result of that post, I would not have known about nor attnded one of the most amazing weekends of my life. I have a whole new second family after only a few days. Thank you all for the part you played in making the experiences of the weekend so joyful- especially to Kerry and Kay for keeping me in the loop and hosting such wonderful parties. Can't wait to meet more of you in the future! (SpongeBob, calendar guy, I was so disappointed you were not there! and Stacy too!)And just to set the record straight.... "My name is Suzann, and I am not an alcoholic". Glad I could give some a little laugh! (you had to be there) I'll be trying my darndest to get to Halifax!

Hi Suzann!

I'm glad you got to meet the core of "the bunch"! I am bummed that I didn't make it, but I'm gearing up for Halifax....even if it means unemployment! (ok, just kidding....lol)

Take care,
Stacy

Hey Suzann, it was great meeting you! You are a blast. I would love to toss around the idea of having a Baltimore-Washington ColonPalooza. Both Spongebob and I are in this area, and Lisa's (Scouty) not too far away. Think about it guys!

Suzann,

It was great to meet you and your family. You, Kay and I will have to have regular mini-semi-colon get togethers for lunch or whatever since we live in the same territory.

Take care. Look forward to hearing from you.

Kerry
