  • Haven't Checked in for awhile

    The summer is always such a busy time for me work wise. I haven't touched my computer at home for almost a month, but for some reason I felt the need to get on tonight and check in. After I'd read a few posts I realized that it's been 1 year since we started to unravel the HCM links in our family. Within the next month both my son and I will both be getting echo's. Everyone's doing fine, but I'm still a little anxious. I was surprised once before and don't want to repeat those feelings.

    I also wanted to say thanks again for just being here. Being able to share worries, bad or good news does make a huge difference.
