Blood results Round #2

Kidneys are way elevated. 1.9. Normal range is about 1.2. Geoff usually runs around 1.6.

One liver number was slightly elevated and everything else looked pretty good.

No time to chat. I got some stomach bug 27 seconds after stepping off the plane last night.

Headed to Cali

The kids and I are headed to Cali tomorrow. Geoff is going on a business trip. A little sad that he won't be able to go with us, but there is a bit of a silver lining in all of this. To even be able to say "Geoff is going on a business trip" a little unreal. Clearly, this past year did not involve any trips, let alone business trips. It's nice to know he's healthy enough to get out and go.

See you when we return! And Geoff, go make some money!

The results are in

Completely normal...well, almost.

His liver numbers were better than they have been in a year. There were a few other results that were slightly elevated, but really in a range that would qualify as his "normal".

Thrilled beyond belief! Here's to another good two weeks!

The new blog is taking a bit more time...stay tuned.

Where's the damn fax?

Still waiting for the blood results from Friday. I guess it's a good thing we haven't heard anything, but I would really like to see it on paper.

Coming soon to a computer near you

A new blog.

Let me be clear: liver boy's blog is NOT going away, but our lives can no longer be run by liver boy's liver.

Therefore, a new blog is born. I need a bit more time to get it ready though. It will probably be categorized as another "mom blog", which some may consider good or bad. I'll let you decide.

My only goal for the new blog is to be liver-free. I will save this blog for all the fun liver stuff. I can't exactly pinpoint what the new blog will be about, but I can tell you a few things it will NOT be about:
  • There will be no talk of our sex life. Period.
  • I will try to keep my love for a boob job at a minumum.
  • I will not talk about how we do not use toilet paper in this house because we prefer disposable wipes, for everyone.
  • I will never talk about politics.

I guess that leaves a lot of open topics.

Mr. Carefree

Or should I say Mr. Careless?

Geoff accidently took his pills this morning, so he was not able to go and have his blood drawn. He called me and said "oops, I forgot"! And I said "oops, don't be a dumbass".

He's going tomorrow....

Blood work

Geoff should be getting his blood work done on Thursday. A little nerve-wracking.

My little online organ donation campaign is a little slow going. 30 people have registered. Not worried though, I'll start workin' it.

Surprisingly, I've been drinking a little less. Coincidence? Hmmmm.

The rules are not the same

Okay, some of you have asked if you have to register at AND check yes on your driver's license. The answer is maybe....apparently every state is different.

For example: my California peeps:

As a resident of California, you should take the following steps to ensure your decision to become a donor is carried out:

Check "YES! I want to be an organ and tissue donor" when you apply for or renew your driver license or ID card through the California DMV


Sign up online to be an organ and tissue donor with the Donate Life California Registry at or its companion Spanish Web site,

California does not require family consent to carry out your wishes to be an organ, eye or tissue donor. However, keeping everyone informed will help avoid any confusion or delays.

For my Texas peeps:

As a resident of Texas, you should take the following steps to ensure your decision to become a donor is carried out:

Check "YES! I want to be an organ and tissue donor" when you apply for or renew your drivers license or ID card through the Texas Department of Public Safety.

Sign up online to be an organ and tissue donor at the Glenda Dawson Donate Life - Texas Registry

I wish it was simple, but it seems that every state is different.

Donate Life

Okay, this marks the first day of me 'giving back'.

I have created a FaceBook fan page to help encourage and register 500 new organ donors. It's pretty simple, go to and click on your state to register. Once you register at Donate Life come tell me about it on Facebook and become a fan! And if you're gonna use the excuse that you're too old for Facebook then you better leave a comment telling me you registered. I have to track this some how...

Please pass on the word, post it on your blog, send people a link, gossip about it, or do whatever it is you do! There are 305,953,512 in the United States. Surely I can get 500 people to sign-up, right?

So far I have registered 1 person. Me. 499 to go.....

Yep, that is correct...I think

I received an e-mail from a girlfriend. It said this:

So Erin, It all just went away? Just like that?

I know, it's bizarre. I agree. But yes, it just went away....

If anyone just happened to stumble on this blog at this point in our lives, they would never believe our story. I wouldn't either.

Life is good

Life is very, very good right now. What a difference a year makes.

There is something bigger out there for Geoff and I right now. I have no idea what it is, but I'm determined to find out.
