Congrats, CP! I am glad that I have gotten the chance to know you, and that you had a doctor who said not on my watch!
I know you had a lot to do with it, too.
I witnessed a good childhood friend go through a few brain surgeries after a car accident. I heard the dire predictions, and I saw him defy every one of them to the very best of his ability. He had help and guidance along the way, but he did the heavy lifting.
So again, congratulations to you!
