Checking back in....and some good news
« on: July 26, 2011, 02:30:17 PM »
It's been a while since I've been here in the forum — even managed to let my Gold membership lapse.

I've been preoccupied:

1. Final production, website, marketing and very soft launch of our new product.
2. Revamping my main ecommerce site.
3. Developing some new services to sell to local businesses
4. Planning new products to create.

Most of all, I've been adjusting to my new status as a dialysis patient — as in, NOT A PATIENT! Apparently, after almost 9 months on dialysis, my kidneys have rebounded and function came back. So my doctor took me OFF dialysis. Yay! No more 3 days a week (18 hours with travel) mostly sitting still in a chair hooked up to a machine to filter my blood. This doesn't happen very often. So far I feel great; I hope it will last.

I'll be signing back up as a Gold member, as I usually found some gems to use and inspire.

Just thought I'd pop back in to say hello.

Thanks, guys. From what I understand, it's VERY rare to come off dialysis once you start. When it happens, it's usually in the first month, but not after more than eight months. I'm very fortunate in this way.

Rockin' and rollin' once again!

Congrats and Welcome Back Gary!

My Ex worked as office staff for a dialysis clinic years ago and as you mentioned it's typically a life long situation. So glad to hear your going to be able to put that behind you.

Have a great day!

Glad to hear you've got a spring in your step and a new bass line to start riffing!
