11,688 days

Post by Duke »

Today's my 32nd birthday. Please join me in celebrating the miracle of this program. I have a life that exceeds any expectation I might have had. I have the program and the people in it to thank.

Thanks for the miracle.

THAT is a lot of 24's! I know when I came in I thought I would just give my liver a break, maybe 3 months. By the time that 3 months came around, I desperately wanted what you all seemed to have and I decided that I had better take some action. No excuses. No half measures. I didn't want to die, I wanted to live free.

Thanks for being one of those who helped light the path on the broad highway. It has been my pleasure to walk alongside you!

Duke I am glad you allowed each of us the opportunity to reflect on your gift and hopefully this will resonate to the newcomer that this does work.
