Hey there folks, Erik here. I thought a little update straight from the source would be good. After several weeks of waddling around in a water retaining 185lb body the dam released and within several days I was back to my normal weight of around 150lbs. Not only did it feel amazing to loose 35+lbs in several days it also suggested that my kidneys were starting to function again. Yipeeee for pee! Blood tests also showed a significant reduction of the creatinine which is also an excellent indicator of kidney rejuvenation.
…also, and of greater importance, is the need to issue a big THANK YOU to all the kind and generous people who have given so much of themselves to make me feel better. There is no way to express how much it meant to see friendly faces at the hospital, hear familiar voices on the telephone, or read heartfelt comments in letters and e-mails. There are so many damn good people in this world, and somehow, a lot of them are my friends. If only it were possible to give each and every one of you a big ol’ hug I would…it would take a while because there are so many of you fine people out there but I’ll do it. Really, it’s the least I can do.
You all are amazing people,
