I got to update my signature!

Postby Gravelyguy » Tue Aug 28, 2018 8:28 pm

It was a good day at Mayo. Had scans yesterday and met with the doctors today. They were very encouraging. It made everything that we went through in the last year worth while.

I am so happy I will be able to walk my oldest down the aisle in November. Wasn’t so sure last June that would be the case.

Hang in there everyone!
