Thanks for your support guys and remember to check yourselves out. Looks like its back to risk taking and having fun.
I wish you all the best. As a gastroenterologist I can not offer any help for your problem but if you need any advice in my field please contact me and this also applies to other VTXOA members. I am 65 yrs young and still work three days a week.
