It's nice to see you blogging again. I hope your chest is feeling better.

How's Larry doing?

Hi smooth! I know that route. Nice you got to run with some awesome company, including larissa! Glad you are running. St. George for you this fall?

HI Rhett! Thanks for always checking in on my blog. Chest is feeling better. I think it is costochrondritis and is responding well with NSAIDS. I just avoid using the left arm/chest. :)

Larry is doing as well as expected. His restless leg syndrome is controlled with the use of Gabapentin although he still has it and moves his legs while sleeping. With that said, he is able to sleep without taking Ambien. That has been a huge blessing...being able to sleep. Another GREAT news is he is now officially on the national registry for kidney transplant. So happy he qualifies and I know there is a kidney out there for him. :)

Bec ~ Hi! Are you running ST. George this year? It will be my 10th SGM and 60th marathon so I am determined to make it there regardless of how slow, do or die! :)

From Rhett on Sun, Aug 16, 2015 at 22:29:51 from 66.87.65.125

I am so glad he qualified for the national registry. I will continue to add my prayers to those of so many others who love him. Thanks for the update. I think of you two often. Good luck at SGM. Celebrate # 10 and 60 big time!
