Good news & Better news

Comfortably_Numb profile image

The good news: Today my husband and I celebrate 32 years of wedded bliss. Reminds me of our wedding song, which I hope Royce also likes, but I doubt it. It’s by The Foundations and it’s called “This Magic Moment.” My favorite line is “Everything I want I have whenever I hold you tight.”

The better news: In 1988 I was diagnosed with Idiopathic Myelofibrosis and given 3 to 5 years to live. Went for a second, a third, and a fourth opinion, each but the last one accompanied by a spinal tap. The fourth doctor looked at a slide of my blood under a microscope and said, “You don’t have myelofibrosis, you’re iron deficient anemic. Go home. Be happy.”

So I did.

Congratulations! That is by no means a small achievement in today's society! You should be so very proud of you and your husband. In early July, my husband and I will celebrate our 31st wedding anniversary, so where we are right behind you! Congratulations again! Fancy1959.

The first 32 years re the hardest. So glad to hear about your diagnosis. You can look forward to more anniversaries and all the cool things that life gives you.

Great moniker by the way!

Congratulations! 🎉 I have been with my husband since I was 18 years old and then we married in 2005. I hope it last a long time as you and your husband. ❤🌷

Okay, if we're talking numbers, we just celebrated our 37th anniversary. Not bad for two high school sweethearts who started dating when I was 15 and he was 16...... Of all of our friends from the olden days, we are the ONLY ones still together!

What great news! Congrats to that and your anniversary!!!
