You would be the queen of understatement Jaynee !!! :mrgreen:
5 years is a biggie and I wish you many, many more of these biggie milestones.
Just FYI, I agree the 3-5 year re-scope would work for me ... 10 years "theoretically" ...... nope.

So so happy for you Jaynee! In August it will be five years since we met (so to speak online). When you come here to visit next month I'll take you to Waubee Lodge and you and I will celebrate your five year mark. Heck, maybe we'll even be able to celebrate something good for me.

CONGRATULATIONS:)!!!!!!
Love, hugs and prayers.

How wonderful. Congrats!
I'm just a dude who still can't believe he had a resection and went through chemo (currently 9 years NED). Is this real life?
