    granny goes viral: Gee Jay,
    Still at it I see. Great going. Me, I am still struggling with getting myself working properly. What a struggle. No energy to write or even think most days. Hopefully surgery to initiate the dialysis process will take place this spring, followed by the intense training, followed by the process, followed by the restoration of some needed energy, followed by, well who knows? Barring any medical complications, which as I am learning can be multiple and dangerous. Oh well. If my fingers still work, and my brain is not drowning in urea, maybe I will be able to be productive in more ways than dialysis output.
    April 2 at 11:26AM
    Jay Squires: RG, Margaret and Granny, you guys inspire me. Thank you for the congratulations.
