      August 4th, 6 years NED at stage IIIb.  Whew. 

      Not sure about this new board thang, but need to be a 'change artist' to keep moving forward.  Pretty slow around here, haven't rescued any deer, but getting ready for deer season, haven't pissed on myself much lately and only battling lymphadema/tendonitis in rt. arm.

      My little girl lost her top two front teeth this weekend.  I pulled out one and the second one she just messed with and was doing a great Nanny Mcphee inpersonation until it finally came out.  Funny to hear her say her 's's"

          We almost share the same surgery date, I am thinking…mine was August 3rd, 2004 for SNB/WLE skin graft, lost pathology and stage 1b diagnosis.  I didn't stay NED for long…about 20 months, but have been stage 3b for 4.5 years now.

          Yep, WHEW! is a great way to put it.  Congratulations and many more NEDs to ya. 

          And bring on the tooth fairy for that little sweetie!  How much does she pay these days?

           

          Take good care, K.

              Took about 6 bucks, 5 was to bribe her into letting me try to yank it out and the other dollar was from her Nanna.

              My son told me he doesn't believe in the tooth fairy.  He did an experiment when he lost a tooth, then put it under his pillow and the tooth was still there in the morning w/no money.  I think I gave him a couple of bucks for creativity.
