Well, the folks at Duke Medical Center got me back in the game! And, after 3 1/2 months of testing and multiple 3 hour trips (each way) I am finally on the Liver Transplant List! This will be my best option for a chance to continue to enjoy retirement with my loving, supportive, patient and strong wife. When the call comes for a transplant, the site will go dark without warning. I will start it up again on the other side!
I will try to catch up on the missed days and keep the site running with daily posts.
