    It's good to be back. Where's all my old BYC pals? Hope you all chime in.

    God has been so good to us.

    For those that doesnt know me, I joined BYC in 2008, was very busy here in the forum until our daughter was diagnosed with AML in 2011 at the age of 12.....now at the age of 16, she is now a 2 time cancer survivor, a double cord blood transplant reciepient/survivor. Shes had several surgeries and that latest one was a hip replacement, all were due to chemo/steroid side effects.
    Today, she is surviving and thriving.

    I'd like to thank everyone here that sent prayers and encouragement to us through my best BYC friend Ginbart.

    I hope to become very active again here on BYC in lots of forums.

    My interest are raising chickens (for eggs and meat), raising hogs (for meat), we have 2 mini manchas (for milk), and gardening/sustainable living.
