    Cool 5 Long Years

    Yesterday was my 5th anniversary of being released from the hospital after 10 days there. Good news is that I had a diagnosis leaving the hospital. Bad news is that it was GPA/Wegeners.

    I am thankful for many people and institutions:

    My amazing spouse!!! She is my ROCK!!!
    Kate Kinney, RCNP - She Diagnosed me
    All my physicians and providers and their staff at the Monroe Clinic system
    My employer who has stood by my absences and been amazing about it! Highland Community College--Go Cougars!
    My family here on the GPA/WG board. You people are amazing!
    The Vasculitis Foundation for spreading awareness and supporting new med students


    Life has been an uphill journey since April 11, 2012. I am glad to be on this side of the ground and will keep fighting as long as humanly possible!

    Have an amazing day everyone!!

    Yesterday, was 6 years for me, on being released from hospital, the first time, with a bag full of meds that started the new me, however I was only in there for 5 days.

    Fighting upright, is the way to go Mike.
    Keep up your amazing fight
