Re Birthday

A small amount of confusion has ensued from this post. I guess I didn't realize that it might be confusing. So I am adding this text in order to clarify things a bit.

In case you are in the position of not knowing about my medical history, here is a brief overview. I was diagnosed with Leukemia in 1997, and ended up fixing that problem with a bone marrow transplant in 2000. I have been cancer-free since then, and have been celebrating the anniversary of that date ever since. So that's what this is all about. I'm sorry for any confusion, and thanks for all your support!
