March: National Kidney Month

This year I have once again chosen National Kidney Month for my March Awareness Ribbon. You may remember that my Dad was diagnosed with cancer and kidney failure in late 2005. Last year he had just started doing dialysis at home. It was a huge improvement over the hemo-dialysis treatment that he had been getting 3 times a week. This year, he is no longer on dialysis! Earlier this year he had a test to see how well the dialysis was performing. The test came back showing that he has enough kidney function to go off the dialysis. Dad has been off of dialysis for a couple of weeks now, and things seem to be going well. Thank you for all your prayers for my Dad!

We are still dealing with Dad's cancer, but that's a ribbon for another month.
Be healthy!
