November 2, 2021 Hi All!

I was hoping to get the official word on being listed by now, but the wheels of progress turn slow. MGH added some more testing. Yesterday, 11/1/2021, Raya & I went to MGH to see the endocrine doctor. We spent an hour discussing my bone heath with a focus on diet.
On December 9th, I’m scheduled for a spine x-ray (to be sure I still have a spine!) and a complete allergy work up.
Hopefully that will be the end of testing. I can’t imagine any more tests are needed, but we’ll see.
Hopefully by the end of December the transplant committee will come back with good news.

I thank everyone from the bottom of my heart who has donated to my Hope Help Live campaign.
I am overwhelmed with the outpouring of generosity, concern and love. This is all very humbling!
Thank you all!

Sept 2021 – Hi to everyone!
I’m still in the process of getting listed, but coming to the end. I suspect I’ll know by beginning of October.

I want to give huge thanks to my daughter Lexie, her husband, Reino for setting up this contribution campaign for me. Raya and I were very reluctant to do this, it’s just not in our nature to ask for money. But Lexie and Reino, living in Chicago wanted to help out and this is their ‘far away’ way of helping, showing love, care and being involved in our welfare.
Major hugs and kisses go out to Lexie and Reino!

I also want to give a public shout out to my lovely wife Raya for all she has done for me so far. All our trips back and forth to Boston and this is just the beginning! Not only the trips, but being ever watchful over my condition. Sometimes, I’m not always the best patient and I can use a bit of ‘re-alignment’.

Lastly I want to thank everyone who has contributed to my campaign. I am forever thankful to your generosity and will never forget. Thank you again.

I will continue to update everyone on this page with my ups and downs with good progress.

Thank everyone again. I am blessed to have terrific people in my world!
