Your 25 years is great news; for you of course, but also for others facing uncertainty regarding survival rates. Three years from surgery next ground hog's day for me. Funny, the less pertinent things we remember so vividly.
Needless to say, the experience did make my ER decision easier. And if I live so long as to outlast my money, I'll still be smiling.
