Wow! It just so turns out that my Dad’s 82nd birthday is today and I’m also on my 82 post in the 365 day challenge! What a coincidence!
Also, today is the last chance to get a donation in for my team in the PKD walk. Of course, you can always donate or make a pledge, however, tomorrow is the actual PKD Walk, and I’m just halfway to my team goal. I’d appreciate whatever you can do to help me in this effort. And thanks again to the bloggers who have donated so far! I was reading some news today concerning future treatment options for my disease, and there are five new medications in clinical trials! Yea! Would it not be fantastic if me and hundreds of other PKD patients had the option of stopping the advance of the disease with a simple medication and not have to go on dialysis or have a kidney transplant? That is what we are raising money for, to make medications like this possible and other life saving treatments and research is ongoing in this endeavor.

I know y’all are probably “tired of” me talking about this and pleading for donations, I will soon be giving it a break for a while…til the next walk lol! But seriously, because it is a cause close to my heart, my Mom had it too, I will continue to educate myself and others and do what I can to support this cause. Wish me good luck and pleasant weather on tomorrow’s short walk. Luckily, mine is short, since the old back ain’t what it used to be. A mile ain’t nothin for a stepper though, and my hubby will be with me all the way.
After all that, I will be busy with preparations for the big birthday weekend. My Dad and my son have birthdays two days apart, and my friend’s is the day after my son’s. She is unfortunately out of town on business, so I already put her card and gift in the mail. My son and my Dad will be joining us for dinner Sunday and so far, that’s all I know, lol. Hopefully I get something figured out for their gifts before then. I, for one, think birthdays should be special. I’m sure I will get something worked out. 😉
