Time for some good news, and an appreciation of things that are more important than making fun of letter-writing idiots. I got this email from my best friend from college:
Friends and Family,
Thanks for all your help, thoughts, and prayers this year. I finished up my
treatments several weeks ago, and the doctors say I'm looking good and cancer-
free. At this point I just need to keep following-up with the doctors and get periodic
medical scans to monitor for any cancer activity.
Happy Halloween, John
p.s. Hair's coming back -- about a half-inch now!
