You guys are great - I'm feeling a bit verklempt myself right now

Someone said in an earlier conversation either here or privately that 2016 was a mofo of a year (I paraphrase) - indeed! In September last year my wife was diagnosed with an intestinal cancer that due to excellent surgical care and pure $hithouse luck was caught in time. It still took 2 surgeries this year, with 6 months on a ileostomy bag between to remedy, and her new normal is now contingent on timing and proximity to washrooms.

Fortunately she's retained the ability to remind me I have no right to complain about my own minor ailments - so that part is exactly the same.

Ouch. I heard something along those lines, sans details. Didn't wish to pry as it's not my place. Sorry to hear (confirmation) though; glad it was caught in time.

Does he need help? He sent me a goodwill dollar when I had cancer, happy to return it, doubled and with interest if he needs it

Thankfully he is not dealing with cancer. With any luck we'll have the old Dave back in a few weeks to a month.
