and here's a one! Just past the 5yr mark, despite bleak prognoses back in 2012.
Initial years were tough, but normal life has returned, mostly. Still visiting ColonClub occasionally, though less frequently then earlier in the battle. Anxieties have gone too. Fully aware how lucky I've been.
I hope you'll find the strength to take things by the day too and that you may celebrate each success and every milestone.
Best wishes, L
