Thanks Big J! It means alot. QFT on the human will for sure. I got to witness alot of that at the Vegas meet.

Thanks again Big J! I'll keep picking away at it like a prisoner making an escape hole in his cell with a makeshift knife.

Sorry to hear about your eyes, but you have the right idea. Just prepare for whatever may come. I hope I do that if I ever get news like that.

Rock on. Keep killing it.
Thanks Mike!! It sure is easier to hit the tightness with a liftoff. I have to get more consistent with it, especially when repping.

Indeed, eyes seem to be terminal, but you never know and I have a chance at beating the odds. People win lotteries, so why can't I win eyesight?

The doc sure doesn't have a good poker face.
