I love meme's like this one...lets me get to know you better.

Thanks for all the great comments and encouragements you leave on my blog. I'm greatly encouraged by you and others that have lived with this disease since childhood. It represents hope to me that J.J. can live a long happy healthy life.

Sorry I haven't commented much on yours...I read every single one....and even click on the comment button sometimes, but then get sidetracked. Twitter seems easier for me to handle a quick tweet.
