Clifty Falls State Park

November 14, 2019 | By Terry | No Comments | Filed in: Default.

After visiting Turkey Run State Park for an epic day hike a few weeks ago, I was in the mood to check out another State Park I’d never hiked at. Clifty Falls is on the Ohio River in Madison, Indiana. This park shouldn’t have been such a mystery to me, as I grew up only • Read More »

Hiking in Turkey Run State Park

November 12, 2019 | By Terry | 1 Comment | Filed in: Default.

I’d always heard of Turkey Run State Park, lots of people have said it’s really pretty, but I’d never remembered much detail. I’d never researched it myself either. I always assumed it was a family trap (nothing wrong with that!), but at this point I’m more interested in harder, more adventurous hikes. Little did I • Read More »

Colorado Vacation, 2019

November 6, 2019 | By Terry | No Comments | Filed in: Default.

It’s funny how living a spontaneous life can lead you in random directions. A month or so ago, my friend Amy in Denver messaged me to come out sometime. I knew I had a few weeks vacation left this year, and also knew that hiking season in Colorado is about to get cold and icy. • Read More »

Hello world! I can’t believe it’s been OVER A YEAR since my last blog update. I am sooooo sorry about that! Those of you that follow me on social media have been pretty much kept up to date, but it’s been a long time since I’ve documented here for those that aren’t on social media. • Read More »

6 Months Out!

Cheers, everyone! Six months. A lot can happen in six months. 2/3 of a human can be developed in a womb. The Earth can go halfway around the sun.  The NBA Playoffs can start and almost finish (kidding).  Oh, and a kidney transplant recipient can make a full recovery! As each of the past 6 • Read More »

Hello friends and family! It’s been an unbelievably HOT and MUGGY summer, so I thought this beautiful 80 degree humidity free evening would be a perfect opportunity to sit on the deck and give you all an update.

April 21 Update

Hello friends and family. It’s been about 3 weeks since my last blog update, so I figured it’s time to give an update to you all whom I haven’t spoken personally with.  The last several weeks I’ve been on my normal twice-per-week clinic schedule at the hospital. I show up at 7am for blood and • Read More »

March 30 update

Hello friends and family! I thought I’d drop a few lines today with latest updates. My last post outlined my return to the hospital, and the start of my 10 day inpatient/outpatient Thymo treatments. This is an immunosuppressant induction drug that helps stop the kidney rejection I was starting to experience a few weeks ago. • Read More »

Hello friends and family, I had a great week at home – my Mom was there most of the week, she was great. Thank you for running yourself ragged for me Mom 🙂 On Friday I went in for my normal bi-weekly labs, and they decided to go ahead and biopsy the new kidney that • Read More »

Hello friends and family, now that the dust has settled from my transplant and I’m firmly entrenched in healing/recovery mode, I thought it was high time to share my experiences with you.  I have kept you up to date with Facebook posts here and there, but I thought I’d lay out a timeline here with • Read More »
