Been on Amazon Music. Listening to digital underground. Then it recommended Grand Master Flash, LL Cool J, Warren G. And Nate Dogg, KRS One, and Snap. Can’t say i don’t like hip hop.

Spring in Georgia
Hit 88F here in Georgia. I have a feeling we’re going to experience a scor cher come summer. Here’s to seeing guys in n skimpy shorts.
Transplants vs. Dialysis
So someone has gone and started the process of getting a kidney transplant. One thing that annoys me is the social worker at the dialysis clinic. The process has been initiated with Emory. But the social worker gives him info on a transplant center in Norfolk VA. Says different clinics have different lengths of time to transplant.
Now he was FedEx a packet of information from Emory. I read through it. First thing i noted 3 to 5 years of wait time for a kidney to become available. Plus the immunosuppresant drugs for the rest of his life.
So he goes for the first appointment. Nurse practitioner says 8 years. And get this then he brings up Norfolk. I knew that because of HIPPA they can’t without a killer amount of permission forms etc..
But the n.p. mentioned he’d have to go to Norfolk and start the process all over again. Then she started with the risks of disease and cancer. I mentioned toxoplasmosis which they don’t test for. It’s a nasty parasite. And can in fact be b transmitted via transplant. But when he got home i discussed the drugs he takes for dialysis and then those he’d have to take with transplant. Also before the 8 years we might see perhaps 3d printing of organs using his own cells. Or he may even get a porcine donor. Of those two I’d prefer the printed organ. Your own cells, no immunosuppressants either. Imagine.
It’s like when i had emy root canal. I asked the endodontist why we couldn’t regenerate the tooth. She told me that n they’d done that when she was in school. 25 years ago
Covid Vaccine coming for me
Got a call from the county government today. They’re scheduling me for a covid-19 vaccine at home. At last. I haven’t had any issues since I mask up for all interactions. It’ll good to be vaccinated even if it won’t 100% protect me from the variants. But the way to understand it is
And update. Received two more doses in 2022. So in the parlance I’m now triple vaxxed. But i still mask up for interactions with visitors.
So once again we come to another holiday that I’m sort of ambivalent about. It represents the immigrant settlers celebrating their survival at the expense of native Americans. So i think one would understand my ambivalence. Otherwise good meal even if it was turkey, mashed potatoes and broccoli casserole.
I’ve stumbled upon the reason U.S. politics is the way it is.
Shouldn’t say I’m surprised. I’ve known about half the population is pretty much idiotic. I chalked it up to those people being maleducated. But didn’t know why. Now i do. Recall that lead was not banned until 1996 though efforts started in the 9701s. See this article. To summarize half the population of the u.s. is brain damaged. Nice to know.
