Well that is good news. I was not around here for the beginning of this thread, but the ending is shaping up to be pretty darn good.

Glad to hear you wife is winning the battle. Will say a prayer for her continued march to 100%.

I have a '59 C-182 that might be able to work into a deal with someone. I'm in a 50/50 partnership situation, but other owner isn't flying it.

Life is good, go enjoy it.
Merry Christmas everybody
Merry Christmas to you and Kris, Brian!

Having recently had a close scare with this myself (for my wife), I feel for you. Very glad this turned out the way it did.

Thanks for the update, I had wondered many times what her status was, figured it best not to bother you with questions and that you would report back when you were ready.

Great Christmas gift for your family.
