The Little Kidney Blog Hits 10,000 Pageviews!

Today, my little "Kidney Blog" hit 10,000 page views. I know that may not be an enormous readership as blogs go, but for a little blog of such humble beginnngs - and grandiose intentions - it feels like a milestone to me.

The intentions have been as follows:

  • To chronicle issues of Home Dialysis, both hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis - at least from the experience of Steve and me
  • To focus on the support of the all-important CarePartner in Home Dialysis
  • To increase awareness of Chronic Kidney Disease - and its prevention.
But the blog has covered other issues also. Issues like rehab, dealing with chronic illness, grieving, preparing the home for ongoing medical care. The most widely read post was not about kidney disease at all!

From the blog's beginning on October 25, 2009, the most popular posts have been:

  • A Young Breast Cancer Survivor Talks About Discussing Chronic Conditions with Children - March 10, 2010.
  • Stephen Martin Williams (8/16/49-4/13/2011) - April 14,2011
  • Welcome to Linda Gromko's Blog - October 25, 2009
  • Amputation Puns and Drug Delerium - April 10, 2011
  • The Inn at Cherry Hill - Useful Recycling of Old Hospital Space - April 15, 2010
Thank you for following along on this journey. Please keep reading as the journey continues.

Take care,
