Anna reports being dressed with bags packed - expecting to be home in the next few hours. Once her computer is fired up she'll be able to fill us all in on her adventurers in nursing - I think having her routine transplant (not a seven person domino chain of donors) mentioned on RenalWeb impressed her medical team ... I should let her tell the stories.  But let me be the first to say ... Welcome home Anna!

At great risk to my own health and safety I took this picture while Anna was laughing with food in her mouth. If I turn up missing check Anna's whereabouts.


Bill, unfortunately, I need you too much to be able to inflict bodily harm.  But, you have definitely upped the bar by introducing Dialyzor Porn into our lexicon, so all I will say is that I have a digital camera too, and one day when you least suspect it, (maybe while you are fast asleep during an extended run...)  Revenge is a dish best served cold, and I am willing to wait a very long time.....

I am at home, whew - there is a lot to write about, and over my next 30 days of house arrest, building back my immune system and healing, I am sure that I'll be really prolific.  Tonight, I am going to just let being home sink in.  I was reading all of you get well posts on my treo, and they really made my week in the hospital fly by.  Thank you all, your love and support are so much a part of the healing process, I am very grateful.

And, the picture won't be my new avatar, but Bill was right when he said that I was happy.  So, we all have a snapshot of one of the highlights of my life, and as much as I hate having my picture taken, I'll admit that Bill was right (I'm still following through with my threat though!)

And Sluff, thank you so much for your call, you are such a kind, caring man.
