I am still trying to figure out a way to sugar coat the surgery. Too bad you have to go thru this initiation to join the club. May all of your follow up tests show nothing. May I have your share of the Turkey.

Best wishes,

Yeah, the first few days are tough but they go by. I couldn't believe how weak I was at first but I was jogging ,weight training and golfing in 4-5 weeks. You will never miss that old kidney of yours. Just work on getting better. You are now back in charge.

Pardon my post turkey day humor, but you are a tuff ole bird. Seriously though, its good to hear you are doing so well and nice to have you back. Now get some much deserved R&R and let the rest of the family pamper you for a while, you won't believe how good you'll be feeling by X-Mas.

Thoughts and prayers,
