So glad to hear that Dave is getting through his kidney problems. I believe that our training can help us get through many difficult health problems, both mentally and physically. The kidney problems I have right now are two, artery, which was hopefully taken care of by having a stent put in. The artery to the left kidney was 95 % blocked. The other problem is kidney disease caused by my cancer, multiple myeloma and the treatment I have had. Bone marrow transplant, chemo, radiation etc. It has been over 8 years since my diagnosis. Average survival for this disease, which is not curable, is 24 to 36 months after diagnosis. No question in my mind that all my years of Uechi training has contributed to my survival. My health care people agree with that. So kidney problems, cancer, whatever it may be, our training helps us survive, day to day, month to month and year to year. I am "living" proof of that.
Wishing Dave a complete and speedy recovery..
