I just wanted to write you all to let you know that my kidney transplant seems to be a success. I got out of the hospital four days ago after just six days in the hospital. Except for doctor’s appointments every other day for the next three weeks, I’ll pretty much be staying home and off public transportation. I should be back to work on July 5th and after a few months. After awhile I will begin taking less medication than the 15 different drugs I’m taking now (which is good because they cost me $450 a month). Every indication is that life will be back to normal before the end of the year (though I also found out that I need glasses).

I will be checking email everyday and also I still have my phone if you want to call (206) 390-3972.

I am hoping to be able to travel before this time next year.
