A Guest

Today we have a guest at Dreaming: Here's Mr. Ken...
Hello everyone, Melinda has invited
me to give you an update and to
tell you MY good news.
First the update:
Whooohoooo, back in December I
went to the kidney Dr. for a follow-
up and received a clean bill of health!
I was deemed "stone free!" Now we
are in the process of trying to figure
out the cause of the stones. Bummer--
NO MORE POP and hard telling
what else. I am also proud to say
that I have lost a total of almost
50 pounds in this process!!!!
Melinda has a new husband now. :)
***************************************
NOW THE GOOD NEWS...
Melinda hinted several posts ago that
I was offered a job. I accepted this job
March 1st! On March 8th, I was asked
to come visit with the people in HR
regarding benefits. Thought I was
going home after this BUT they put me
to work THAT afternoon! Tomorrow
afternoon I will have completed my
first FULL week AND I get paid too.
Very Cool.
I am working for a neighboring county
government in their IT department.
I am part of a team that runs calls
for the employees that are having
computer issues--all over the
courthouse I am. My new co-workers
are easy to work with and I am
loving every minute of it.
I would like to let EVERYONE know
how much their support, prayers and
thoughts are appreciated.
THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
THANK YOU! For keeping Melinda
and I sane through this whole process!
Mr. Ken
**********
Hi! It's me-I just wanted to throw my
THANKS in also. Blogging has been
theraputic for me in this tough
situation and I would not wish this
on anyone.
I have met so many wonderful caring
and kind people. All of you have been
a tremendous help! I could go on and
on but I won't. Just know that we
love you and can't say THANKS
enough. Melinda~
~Keep on Dreaming~
