Hiya Canuck,

Thanks for touchin' bases, I can relate to being busy, I think going through Tx, in a way, deprives us each of a bit of time other than that done waiting.

So shortly after SOT, SOT+4, EOT, EOT+12, SVR there's catchin' up to do ... things pleasant and some just routine ... and it's summer when us Northerners, some more Northern than others, gotta make hay while the sun's a shinin'. sun.gif

It's a busy time for many ... so not to worry just know that we DO miss ya any time you're not around.

Thanks for the words, I've been busy too (a bit preoccupied with family home improvements) of which I've been elected to tackle.

 

Catch ya on the rebound,

Linux

Hear-hear!! Ditto what everyone said!! The very right man for the job.

I was so pleased to read that you stepped up and volunteered. 

I've been peeking in, trying to keep up on good news and new news, but I am just swamped at the moment, so, it would appear that I have disappeared!

"Ah-ll be bauk", she said.

Sorry, unavoidably busy, detained, pre-occupied, hands tied, no choice, distracted from what I really wish to be doing - would rather be posting with all of you here!

Miss you all. smile C.

Thanks Dave, you`re too kind.  smile

I`m not finding the time to be around much these days, my life is taking me in other directions at the moment, so I`m very pleased indeed that someone as capable and caring as yourself is joining the Admin team.  You`ve already proved yourself to be an asset to the forum and I`m sure that many more people will benefit from your help, encouragement and wise words.

Keep up the good work!! 

** And belated CONGRATULATIONS on your SVR, Dave!!  Woohoo!!!

smile Thanks Jill,

That means a lot coming from you ... hopefully we've all learned a little through seeing you in action, your compassion, your empathy and your understanding of human nature are all such admirable traits, add that to your experience and knowledge base and it shows why this site has been and is so successful in helping those with HCV, those on treatment and those who have reached SVR.

 

Thank You for All that you do,

Dave

Awww, so many kind words, Thank You All so much!

Kind of without words right now, I haven't a clue what to do so for now I'll just keep on keepin' on.

It's nice to be involved with this fine site and all the wonderful and caring people here.

I'm honored to have the opportunity to help in any way I can.

This site has been a life changer for me and I know for others as well so it's great to be a part of it all.

 

Thank You,

Dave
