• 11/22/2010 Transplant plus 4 yrs plus 77 days!
    We are home from what is Bonnie's third trip to Boston docz since Aug 31 (Transplant anniversary). This week we are celebrating our 22 anniversary. Both of us are busy on the book and with grandparenting. Bonnie's left eye continues to heal the "defects" that probably resulted in an attack of graft-vs-host disease this summer. Her Boston surgeon put a piece a placenta on the cornea and stitched it shut the first week of Sept and again in October. Most of the October stitches have come off, but Bonnie is keeping it well gooped and taped shut in an effort to give it a couple of other weeks of rest to secure the healing. Daniel is the sick one these days with terrible hip pain and now a very bad case of the crud. And still we are happy and doing well. We had a wonderful time with the kiddos at Halloween. Bonnie made Halloween coloring books from their own past Halloween pictures (at They all came to hear Bonnie preach on the 21st; they are getting more and more accustomed to being in church and liking it more. We will be celebrating Thanksgiving at Jen's house with them and the other four grandparents. We loved seeing grandson Jackson and his mom, Dr. Deb in Boston. Jackson is quite the kindergartener and athlete these days. He's quite into playing chess. The book writing is squeezed in between doc and kiddo visits and church activities. We enjoy beautiful sunsets over the ocean every night.

Glad to get this. Have been thinking of you a lot. Didn't want to interupt your "creative flow." Best wishes in surgery! ( and for results to be as you wish )


Lena Diethelm

Best wishes indeed.

I think of you two often right now. Lee is on Day 50 in Kaiser Redwood City. Started with a an attack of severe acute pancreatitis mid January where he spent 10 days in patient, then out for 10 days, then since Jan 31 in patient and still there. They took out most of his pancreas 2/16. It's been all about the complications (not unexpected) and this can go on for a few years though likely not all in the hospital.

So I think of you guys and take great hope from you.

Lena (& Lee)

Glad to see the post...I have been checking in periodically to see 'what's up'. Glad that it is generally positive! Best wishes on the surgery. May you sail through with flying colors. Love to both of you.


Sending love and prayers to you both. Hope surgery is proving successful and that all ahead is...well, is the best it can be. Namaste, Betsy


Hope you are power rowing and triking and getting that "new arm" back strong and muscled! XOXOX, betsy


Hoping for a "May update"! Nice to see more people checking in here. Feeling of connection and community. Bet spring is beautiful in NC. Sure is in Northern California. Perfect days in late April/early May. Much love, betsy
