Bluhduh Duckie of Borg.

Tomorrow morning, scheduled 9:30AM, Friday the 13th...... your beloved 'ol-buddy-'ol-pal' Duckie goes bionic. A first step I'm not looking forward to.

My left arm will be opened-up for a 'fistula' - or dialysis tap - for filtering my blood every third day, until a proper kidney is available for transplant. The dialysis schedule won't happen right away, but it's coming soon. Perhaps in a few months.

I may not feel like riding or partying much while all this goes on, and the wait for a kidney may take another FOUR FU**ING YEARS. So, iff'n I drop off the Rockies social calendar for a while...... you'll know the why of it.

See ya.

Good Luck Duck

Geez, I hope everything goes well for you. My co-worker donated a kidney to a friend a few years ago. Donor and recipient are doing great.

Bionic is OK and hope it works fast and well.

I hope your wait is not nearly that long. Best of luck with the procedure.
