Re: Progress Toward an Artificial Liver Transplant, NIH

Thanks for posting this Marion. I've read some other articles concerning 'building' organs for transplant, but not this one. What an exciting option for liver patients if it came to fruition.

Well, hello Raye.  How nice to hear from you.  Did you enjoy your trip?

Marion, I enjoyed myself greatly travelling back home the long way to Canada ( Idaho, Nevada, Utah, Colorado, Death Valley, Grand Canyon, Arches National Park, etc.etc.) Kansas. What a nice bit of country the western states are, and such vivid and unusual terrain. All the little flowers in Death Valley in bloom during the spring are so beautiful, and the sunsets out west are just beyond words.

I'm so happy to be here for all that I was given during my trip home.

Raye....I have yet to see the desert bloom, but have hear that it is spectacular.  You covered quite a bit of territory while traveling. 
My house faces west to a mountain range.  Behind this range is the ocean.  I can't see it from here however; our weather is heavily influenced by the fog being pulled inland when the interior heats up.  But, I enjoy the sunsets also. Are they really that different from your part of he world, and how?
Best wishes,
Marion
