BoN 2011 retake, continued  

I've sent out an email to schedule the weekend - it comes from setameeting.com and, at least in my email, has one of those "unknown date" comments in the time/date field; I hope this doesn't mean it will end up in your spam box.

If you didn't get it and want to give your input on when BoN will be, let me know.  If you didn't send me your email address earlier but want in, I can add you.

Apologies for hijacking your post
This is Neil in England. Could you please pass on to ssm a request for some moral support?

On 1st February, I was called in for a (third) kidney transplant. Things have been rough. More than once, we have feared that I might not survive. For the first time in my life, I have agreed to take anti-depressants.

The ray of sunshine in all this is that after a slow start, the kidney has been working quite well. Until this week. It may just be a reaction to yet another infection, but my blood tests are going in the wrong direction. I had a biopsy today, so we should know in a few days. If it shows rejection, the odds are that I will lose the kidney.

I am running low on the strength and willpower to fight. If anyone has any message of encouragement, I can always be reached via my parents at:
9 Sledmere Drive

(I think they would also get a morale boost from having something other than chicken soup to bring me.)

Sorry again for the strange method of getting in touch - it turns out that my "free bedside internet access" is extremely limited.

Neil! I am so sorry to hear that you're having such a rough time! I've "crossposted" your info to ssm (with a little bit of disguise for the address), and I'll post something fairly obscure on facebook directing ssm-rs this way.

Best of everything for the results of your biopsy and the future of your kidney. We're all rooting for you. If there's anything I can do from the other side of the pond, just let me know.

Oh. And I've "unscreened" your post to reply to it, and I'm not screening my responses - I'm not sure on the details of how this works, but I'll screen it all again in a while, hoping that you'll still be able to read it.

NOTE: My friendly postmaster says "UK" the machines will read it as Ukraine - it will go there, and then get sent back to the USA and finally readdressed to go to England. So write "England" or "Great Britain" on it instead of UK. 'Kay?
