No, thank you

  I just wanted to take this post to thank you, my beloved readers.  Without you, Stolen Colon would have no point.   It is nice to have someone there to "listen" to me rant and rave, to provide support, offer advice and to just laugh at (oops I mean with) me.  It is your comments, letting me know you are out there listening, that help keep me going.

The blog averages around 150-200 hits day,  Holy crap?  How am I that interesting?  All the same, thank you.  You have helped to make this journey easier.   

I always appreciate all the well wishes, good vibes and prayers.  It is nice to know others are thinking of you and hoping for the best.  So this big and heart felt thanks goes out to all the people I have never met in real life, the family members I have drifted from, the long lost friends I had lost contact with, the second cousins I haven't seen in 25 years, my support group of "nesties" and "P&Fer's", and my new online family of FAPers.   

I hope everyone has a warm and wonderful holiday.  I will post when I can.  Hopefully, I will be able to update after the procedure at Mayo and let you all know I will be getting to keep my digestive organs, for a few more years anyways.  

Peace Out.
