    I am happy to report that I made it through my kidney biopsy without any complications!!! You have no idea how terrified I was to have it. In 1999 I had one and nearly bled to death because they hit a large artery. After that one I had to be in the hospital for 3 weeks!

    With love, with patience and with faith, we'll make our way.
