Actually, that was Karen who posted under my username. We are on the island right now, very windy every day.

Karen has survived the breast cancer and is now cancer free according to the tests and is now volunteering one day a week at the cancer center where she was treated. She wanted to give back something for all the great care she received. The next "project" is for stomach surgery to repair a hernia in her diaphragm tht allows stomach contents to bulge through. That will be happening a week after we get home.

I'm doing fine, both knees are ok and I have 2 "new" eyes from the cataract surgery. Nothing else on the horizon right now for me.

We have a new family member, a Jack Russell terrier about 8 years old adopted from the SPCA. We understand his previous life was not very happy, but he loves Karen and follows right behind her everywhere she goes. I'll post a pic when we get home.

Thanks for all the BD greetings, really made her day.

Richard

Richard,

I don't know you or Karen, but your post made me so happy. Cancer free and volunteering is AMAZING. As are great knees and new eyes! Rescuing a Jack Russell to add joy to your lives is fantastic.

Many, many more happy birthday wishes to Karen.

Kristin
