On the good side I continue to be Ned and my Kidney function has improved after losing a lot of weight. I will be 75 years young this Summer and 16 years NED a week later on August 1. On the other side dealing with non Kidney heath issues and recovering from a fall last spring.

 

Hopefully I will be able to continue for years to come helping and icing  down the newbies as part of their initiation. Occasionally somebody does not like my comments, but most do. Every once in a while I throw out a bit of humor to lighten up the mood.

You are a "NerfBall to the panic stricken".

That needs to go into your signature block somehow.

Lemme at 'em.   We're glad you're here to keep us on track.  But I'll beat you to the 75 year ribbon; but not the suvivor time ribbon.  Happy to you for both of them.

Hugs,

and thank you for your greeting, it came moments after I had joined and was the first communication I had with anyone on the subject.   You were a breath of fresh air and positivity.   

Hope you are doing some good physio working on stability and rectifying whatever it was that caused the fall.

Hey Iceman I love the image of us newbies being iced down - at least for myself I felt like I arrived here flaming with fear.  You're also encouraging me in my weight loss endeavours.  Thanks for your steady presence and best wishes for many more years of NED ahead.
