Great to reach the 5 years! I'm up to 4 next month and as someone wrote, I don't want age more quickly, but wish the next 13 months will rush by. Keep myself busy I suppose. I'm due the next colonoscopy now, but they say it might be January. No problems with anything so far, but I'll be relieved when it's over. People have told me that passing 3 years is great, so I hope 4 is even better.
But this post isn't meant to be about me, it's to congratulate you for your great news! :D Cheers from NZ.
