Thank You!!! All of you that have stood (or sat) beside me through all of my ranting and raving I just wanted to say, Thank you. Without your support, encouragement, prayers and well wishes I would have gone insane long ago!!

DawnT, just looking over old threads.

Was wondering how DH is? Well and good, as are you I hope?

quicksilver, thanks for asking. We are all doing good. DH is busy with everything he can possibly do outside, feeling like the "man" he did before. We go back to the Drs. on the 20th to see what he thinks, but I know DH is definately feeling great and that is what counts. I feel as well as DH feels!! ;>)

Today he goes to a second opinion DR. He is by himself as I have to work. :>( He has been complaining about his calves swelling if his socks are slightly tight at all, so I hope he remembers to ask/let this DR know about this. Otherwise nothing has changed, he still feels like "the man". :>) Dawn

The brat. I don't know whether to laugh or cry. He is as stubborn as an a** ( probably gets it from me). I'm going crazy here!! And I don't have a rubber room. :>( Dawn

Reading this about your son brought tears to my eyes. You must be so proud of him.
Try to stand back and let him do what he feels he should even though it's causing you such anguish.
"Let go and let God" sounds such a hackneyed phrase sometimes but it is true.
You're not alone in this Dawn, remember that.
Sometimes I think that DC ers are bound together by suffering just as much as by joy.
By the way, I am green with envy at your weight loss.

Update

Just an update; Jim goes Wed. for his fistula surgery. He went to the vascular specialist Fri. for a consultation and comes home to tell me that!! His kidney function is down to 18% now and he has to be ready for dialysis. The specialist did say that if one of the kids is a match that he may only have to have dialysis for a few weeks, so that is something to look forward to. Please keep Jim, the surgeon, and a donor in your prayers. Dawn

P.S. Pray for my sanity while I take care of my grandchildren and Jim!!
