I have been away but lurking for the last year as my head has not been into egging as much as I used to. This was due to my wife's cancer diagnoses. It has been a year since this journey started and we finally got some very very good news. My wife just had a mammography, sonogram and a breast MRI and all were NEGATIVE!! We feel like a huge weight has been lifted off us and we both felt the stress just leave us for awhile. We really wanted to get to Waldorf this year but knowing the tests were coming up we did not want to make any plans not knowing what the future was going to bring. So To everyone going to Waldorf have a great time and even though we may not be going nothing and I mean nothing can replace the feeling I have have now.

Happy Egging to all and to all a good night
Everyday is Saturday and tomorrow is always Sunday.

    As a survivor I know exactly what a great feeling you are experiencing now. 'Relief' is the most immediate release of pent-up emotions followed by the lifting of a great weight.

    Congratulations to you both. Now you can get on with your lives.
