Didn't want to disrupt the other topic with this, so I'm tossing it in here.

Thanks to everyone who welcomed me back and said hi. It's nice to know that I'm memorable to those I haven't caused severe mental trauma to [Big Grin]

So... it's been a bit over a year since I last actually posted anything. I've actually been lurking about every few weeks, reading a few topics here and there, but didn't post because I didn't have much of value to add.

Life for the last year has been focused around all sorts of medical fun that I won't bore you all with most the details of. The good news is that this past March, I received a kidney transplant and am no longer a dialysis patient although lots of complications have resulted. I've survived them, however, and things are hopefully getting better now.

With a little luck, I won't have to eat any more hospital food or be woken up at 3am by a nurse who insists that I drag my carcass out of bed so they can weigh me. Murder has never seemed quite so justifiable to me before....

Hi Steen!

Wow, kidney transplant. I can barely imagine what you've had to go through this past year. [Frown] I'm sure it's been a roller coaster... I sure hope things are smoother from now on.

Great to have you back! [Applause] [thumbsup]

I'm glad to hear that things are looking up!

Well I can't claim to "know" you but your No. implies "welcome back" big styleee...

So a "big up" to you on your return...

[Big Grin]

And congrats on the whole losing the dialysis deal...
that has got to be a major boost to your whole "QoL" deal....

Seriously though... excellent - hope it keeps on the "UP" track...

BTW some in IRC are asking about you Tut... Just let 'em know you're OK... or we'll never hear the end of it...
