They put me out for about an hour. And I went home at 3:00. Not so bad.

Kenny!
So sorry I missed all of this! This is GREAT news! So happy that you got the RFA!!!!!! Thrilled, actually! Good luck on the 12th (ironically, I will be having an RFA on the very same day to take care of the last two spots they can see on my scans). Hoping it will lead to NED for both of us!

It is hard on me when you are so quiet, Kenny.
It is weird to me how much I want you to be okay.
In ways that I don't understand, I feel a depth of caring about people on this board. It is sometimes more so than my biologic family.
I wonder if it is because we "listen" to what each other says with ought interference?
Anyway, take care Kenny and yes, like it or lump it, I am praying for you!

Thanks you guys, Cynthia, good luck on the twelfth. Celeste, I've been busy working around the house, not as much computer time. Thanks for the nice post, you're too kind.
