Re: Hey, Birthday Boy
Thanks for asking. Was able to make it back to God's country by last Christmas (barely), and doin' better every day.
They keep us going back to Palo Alto VA periodically to recheck everything and see if I'm having any signs of rejection, and only once - in May - did they find any problem. Fortunately they were able to wipe out the antibodies with some massive blood scrubbing down there, then following up with a chemo-like set of infusions up here at PDX. Since then, my strength is getting much better, color is back, and I don't have to even use a cane to walk!
We've moved to a better house in Salem; from NE to SE, and actually have some trees for shade.
Haven't done any more with my "Beast", so it's been around 4 years since I changed fluids, removed the battery and put her up on blocks. (Other than having her towed to our new digs. But still have hopes to get riding again after my legs get stronger - maybe next summer.
