Re: Pancreas Transplant News

Man, what a roller coaster.

You've got a great attitude, Mike. You deserve a pancreas.

Ya know, I hear that all the time. I don't really deserve credit for having a good attitude any more than a person should be faulted for having a bad one. It's just something you are born with. I have had a LOT of bad stuff happen to me but apparently I'm just built to roll with it. I'm just a happy person, dammit. The only time in my life that I was unhappy was when my dog died 13 years ago. I still cry when I think of her.

Yeah, my dog has a similar effect on me. I'm sure Freud would have something to say about that .

Here's another option (this one's for the guy running Vanguard's Health Care fund):

Edward P. Owens
Lead Manager since 23-May-84

Owens is a senior vice president at Wellington Management Company, his employer since 1974. From 1968 to 1972, he was a nuclear engineer and submarine officer in the U.S. Navy. Owens holds the Chartered Financial Analyst designation.

Re: Pancreas Transplant News

Keep up the good thoughts. Just a false start. It sounds like it won't be long now.
