Doing my first dialysis session (manual) at home.




It truly does take a village! Last weekend we had an army of angels help us clean up the yard and set up our plumerias for the season. Yesterday Stacy’s brother Darel and my sons Timothy and Christopher gave up their Saturday to do repairs in our home and get us ready for me to start dialysis this week. Stacy and I were SO overwhelmed with emotion last night when we got home and saw all their handiwork, to make our life easier and more sterile. You guys ROCK!!

Plus, HUGE thanks to Barbara and Ronnee Brown for giving us their Friday to help get our room ready for my dialysis set up as well.

Surgery Update

The surgery went well, The catheter worked fine on its first test. There was/is very little pain from the surgery, except when I use my stomach muscles. So taking it easy in my recliner today. There were some of, um, let’s say related complications with just having surgery, which made for some misery yesterday. But that’s pretty much cleared up now. I canNOT thank everyone enough for the love and prayers offered yesterday. Believe me, we felt them. Thanks

After surgery, there is no better comfort than my amazing wife, Stacy – a nurse par excellence. But a close second is a scrumptious lobster roll sent special delivery from Maine! Yes, I am SO spoiled – and proud of it. MUCH love and thanks to our amazing friends Fred & Nancy Gale in Boston for this awesome treat!
