Rear-Ended!

Irene was stopped at a traffic signal in Capitola today when a car rear-ended her.  Providentially, I was within 5 miles and at the scene within 10 minutes.  Local police took a report, the other driver admitted fault and Irene is recovering this evening. The other driver told Irene and police that he was distracted, looking at his fingernails, when he ran into her.

Irene will be examined by her primary care physician tomorrow.

Thanks …. for caring,

Dave

Thank You!

Thank You!

Irene’s slowly getting stronger by the day.  This afternoon we took a stroll through Wilder Ranch.

Her sleeping patterns and energy are still very inconsistent; she feels tired quite a bit of the time…even when waking up in the morning….feeling like she hasn’t slept much through the night.  However, there is NO comparison to the 24/7 NAUSEA and 3 day a week regiment of dialysis for the last 6 ½ years.  She is forever grateful and optimistic about the future.  She sends a virtual HUG to all that have reached out during this transition and season of recovery.

She’s due back @ UCSF in 2 weeks for more lab tests and still conducting bi-weekly tests locally which are overnighted to UCSF.  UCSF closely monitors her progress and are pleased with how she’s doing.

She continues to wage war against Primary Amyloidosis which is and continues to shrink into submission and remission…and has done so since her stem cell transplant in June, 2007.

Thanks for caring,

Today, Irene walked down the hill from our house to the U.S. Post Office today (about a 7 minute walk) then UP THE HILL in about the same timeframe.  It was the most rigorous activity to date and she did it without burden.  It was NOT an uphill battle…!

Irene’s lab work continues to be very good; her energy is growing daily.  Her sleep patterns are inconsistent but she rests throughout the day as she makes the seismic shift to this new season of life.  She returns to UCSF for an outpatient visit next week.

Thanks for caring,

Dave
