Welcome (back?) to JD, Dylan. No idea what's happening with your purported posts from before. We've never had a problem with someone's posts disappearing here, and I don't see anything in our deleted post archive, so I'm clueless as to what may have happened. Anyway, glad to see you posting again, and better luck this time.
Great story about the donations for your son. Glad to hear he's doing well... Enjoy JD, and we look forward to chatting with you around the boards here. Holler if you have any more posting problems!
