Congratulations! You've been "deported"!
Now go and enjoy your life!
Will do. I try to treasure each passing moment
A little less you'll be packing on you next hike benben.
Could use a couple of pics of the Tri-Cities area or the Great Columbia Gorge over on the Pics Thread to show off to the folks. Haven't been there in years.
Congratulations, Best Wishes
Thanks BS. I will send some pixel love over on the PIC thread in a bit, when my current work load gets resolved.

I was concerned about how I'd fair to be honest. I mean I used to be really squeamish with just a shot or blood draw, but after 1.5 years of treatment - figured I'd toughened up a bit.
It wasn't bad. It did feel weird. I did have a mental sensation that he was cutting into me like a rough steak with a butter knife at times. LOL.. I did feel some pain and he could see the grimace on my face and applied some more local anesthetic, which did the trick. I saw lots of bloodied up gauze pads, but he did a great job distracting me as most of the time we were engaged in a discussion about family trips to Universal Studios, Disneyland, and puking while snorkeling in 10 ft swells vs scuba diving.
Best wishes to ALL.
