Congratulations, and thank you for sharing with us. I was not on the board 4 years ago, but I am so happy you are well and the doomful predictions were not right. It is so interesting that you say the transformation was so great that it is more significant in a way than your birthday.

Glad to hear you came through your op well too Elizabeth Faith. Very very scary stuff.
