Gee, I get my own story!!!!  Well, it is said that each of us is a separate story, so guess I'm not that special.  I posted in 2016 when I was going in to lose a kidney to Cancer.   Sadly, it looks like I'm going to be struggling with a different less encouraging prognosis. Pancreatic Cancer.    Candace has agreed to keep this site up to date for me from now on.  Thank you sweet lady!  Take care everyone. 

Sept 2016 post:
I am losing part or all of a kidney in the next few weeks.  I have such a good old English  recipe for kidney pie ... (Thanks Suzy!) ... but they tell me I don't get to take it home.  Something about studying it.  Hmmmm.   Anyway, I wasn't going to draw attention to myself with a site like this.  However, the overwhelming number of friends who want to be kept informed and help leads me to realize we can't easily keep everyone in the loop. Liesl will be manning this, with some direction from Mark and me.    Soooo, welcome to our CaringBridge website.  We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement.  I'm hoping this is of short duration, as in "All out, all gone.  Now we're done!"  See the surgeon on Monday so no news till after that.    Keep your fingers crossed and thank you for visiting.
