Show some love for Ghost

Post by katie99 » Thu Mar 18, 2010 7:58 pm

Hi Ghost -

I just wanted to make sure that you know how much you mean to us, your advice and answers are invaluable to us all!
You always answer our questions whether large or small, difficult or downright silly, while never reminding us of that!
Thank you from all of us - we would be lost without you! :mrgreen:
much love & respect to you

I want to "third" that...
Ghost, Thank you so much for answering our questions so objectively-- but with warmth. Sometimes we do not get the answers we want BUT you always manage to make them palatable. Again, thank you so much for all the energy, thoughtfulness, and knowledge that you contribute to this board! Hil

I would also like to continue the "thanks" to GHOST. I think IVF and infertility is stressful enough and it is a relief to know that someone may be able to answer our questions. This site definitely decreases anxiety and the stress that do come along with infertility. I would of NEVER been able to continue to have kept trying if it wasn't for these supportive women and the knowledge of GHOST. Thanks again :D

I will gladly join the crowd to Thank Ghost. I have learned more then I ever wanted to know by reading his responses. Like it was said before, we may not like the answer, but you provide the truth in a way that makes it easier to accept.

Gosh, thanks ladies! :oops:

PS: I made all of the above posts under my alternate user names.

PS: I don't know about this Ghost. He's never answered any of my questions.

I'm very glad if any of my posts have helped anyone. It seems to me that IVF is terrifying for many. They pay a lot of money for something very mysterious and complicated and technical, it's often not explained thoroughly, and it often fails. You are all very brave to go through it. You are all my heroes.

It's nice to be appreciated. Much thanks.

ditto to all above.... i find myself reading posts that are specifically asking for your help, even if I haven't experienced the same problem, just for the insight and comfort of your responses. I know you say you aren't an expert, but you're the closest thing we've got and we do appreciate the time you take to help us at times when we feel as if we have no one else...

I agree ladies! Ghost has provided some GREAT information and advice to me. When I don't understand something, I turn to Ghost and always get very detailed information. I thank you so much for everything. I don't know what we would all do without you! Thanks again.

Thanks for starting this thread! I cannot express the gratitude I feel for Ghost. He has been my support through my seemingly never ending IVF journey. He makes us all look good because we learn so much from him and bring that knowledge back to our REs. This IVF journey can be so lonely and scary and frustrating - knowing Ghost is at the other end of the computer makes everything so much easier to handle. He tells it like it is and provides more support than he will ever know.I feel like he is an old friend. I trust him more than I do most people.
Thanks Ghost! you are the GREATEST!!!!!!!!!!!!!
