Man that is awsome...
I understand the whole issue as I have a 5 year old niece that was diagnosed with Luekemia 3 weeks ago and is undergoing round after round of chemo right now. Next friday she gets her second spinal tap and will hopefully get some positive results which will allow her to return home for christmas and then start her 32 months of treatment.
Happy thanksgiving for sure and I wish you guys all the best and many happy times... Enjoy life every day because you never know when the next curve ball may come.
Heiko

Count every day as a blessing!

Most of us bought these Pcars because we realize there are "only so many sunny days left".

Enjoy every day as a gift…not just on Thanksgiving.

Nice shot of the last pills going down. What a face.

You can tell she was happy to be done!

Just when you think you have it bad you hear things like what @Heiko is going through….kids don't deserve that kind of pain.

Don't stare at the rocks in the road. or you hit them. Concentrate on the end line.

God bless you guys, that is a tough road.

Hey JD,

Yes. I am too. How did you know?

Funny my wife looks similar in a lot of ways….we even have the same drink cups!

I was referring to Mark/Coreseller. But if you want to post some "glossies" will gladly have some of the "danger birds" take a look and let you know what they think .
