I thought I would slip in some news about Mr. Stable, yours truly. My serum markers went up (but not to baseline levels!) and my urine protein expression went down 45% from the first cycle (now 25% below baseline). So how should I spin these numbers? How about if I fantasize about a pita stuffed with broccoli sprouts and purslane (courtesy of Nichols!) while sipping some green tea and just laugh about it.Next week I get to go to the new Phase I/II wing at Roswell. The place is both gorgeous and impressive. Private rooms with all the bells and whistles, a dedicated pharmacy, specially trained research nurses and of course comfy chairs & flat screen TVs... I don't think I'll all the sudden start looking forward to my visits, but geese it sure feels nice.

We got a great surprise in our mailbox yesterday. A packet of purslane (and other) seeds from Nichols Garden Nursery (our absolute favorite nursery, run by the most wonderful couple, Rose Marie and Keane). Here it is, the peak of busy. Frantic preparations counting down to their annual Plant Day (May 17th) and Rose Marie finds the time to read my blog, send me a catalog, a note and several packets of seeds. The world is a better place because of dear folks like these.
