More snow. . . hey, enuff is quite enuff. . .LOL

Hello Snowy World. . . This morning when it was still dark I watched the space station transmitting photos of EARTH as it journeyed Northward.

I saw clearly when we passed over The Cape and the Boston area.  Beautiful shots. . . I "looked at myself" looking at Creation.  The magic of it all!

Tomorrow I have three sessions at my Clinic, one is a routine bloodtest to gage and regulate the blood thinner. . . .coagulation time. . . Then they will repeat the battery of tests on my kidneys done early Feb.  Since November there has been "deterioration" in kidney function. . . not "strong enough" to do all the blood cleaning , it seems, and also my specialists think I may have lost too much weight so they want me to gain about 10 lbs. . . Also, there has been some conversation about dialysis .  . . I am not needing that nor ready for that right now. . .just some "educational chat".  My medical staff. . . LOL. . really like working with well-informed patients who understand what they are trying to do:
all that makes the therapy "easier and more effective".  That goes for prayer support too. . . .

Thank you for your encourgement and prayer.

Hugsss all around. .. ;-)

p.s.  Anyone hearing from Gary these days?  ;-))

Wishing you the very best and much love Justin; can't tell you how sorry I am that you're continuing to have so many health problems. I hope you have family and friends taking good care of you and providing moral support.

Someone who has been tested to his limits and survives, is the best person to seak advice from. So you Justino, I am sure, are the best doctor ever.

Stew and GP. . .hey, thanks, both of you! You know how to give a guy the ''push' he needs. .and I am grateful.

My family and Peter and "hometown friends n' neighbors" are taking excellent care of me and allowing me to live and breathe and enjoy their love. I am blessed so much.

I hope you all enjoy the same in your lives.

Luv your attitude!

From Gary's website, he is very weak, but he is in a recovery phase and hoping he can return home.

Hello Justin. It's always good to hear from you here.
Still being presented with challenges I see. I like that you are right in there with 'the team' and figuring out the best course for you to take. Much better being informed than not.
Happy to see that friends and family are there for support.....wouldn't have thought otherwise.
Take care my friend and gain that weight back....hey, maybe eat daily at Peter's family's restaurant....no holds barred!!
Haven't heard from Gary. I know he will be glad to see you here.

Snow: I've been wondering who I have to bribe to get a normal week around here.
One snow day is nice, but the backlog is ridiculous.

Kidney stuff? Aw cripes. Hopefully weight gain will take care of it.
You're in my prayers, Justino.

Glad to hear your "supporting cast" is doing such a good job Justin! Speaking of enjoying the same, I don't suppose there's any way you might be able to clone Peter? Just asking for a friend of course :).
