An update from John. Written December 21, 2000.
A very merry holiday season indeed.
So many excellent things have happenned since the last update.
In October, I finally got this site listed on Yahoo! I knew it would send more people my way, but I had no idea how many. In the first week after the listing, I had 250,000 page-views. In the weeks before, the most I had received was 2000. Not bad. Then to my delight, Yahoo! picked it as one of their 10 Sites of the Week. There has been a landslide of activity and new listings ever since. My favorite among them, Encyclopedia Britannica -- they picked it as their Site of the Day.
Thanksgiving was spent in Columbus with dad. Considering it is my successful transplant that I am most thankful for this year, I wanted to spend the holiday with the guy who made it possible. I was also able to catch dad in a 10-mile race the day after Thanksgiving. It was the first time I had witnessed him in an event and I couldn't have been more proud.
Everything is going well renal-wise for me. Blood tests have been made monthly. My creatinine remains somewhat high at 1.7, but it is a long way from where it was the day before the surgery -- 9.0.
In the coming weeks I hope to add a section to the site detailing my immunosuppressive drug regimen. I think I'll call it "A small price to pay".
Thanks for visiting,
