#Dialysis and DevonTexas

statsSomeone asked recently about the stats from my blog www.DevonTexas.com.  I looked them up and they are quite impressive, I must say.  All-time posts, views and visitors since I started it in June 2012…  Posts = 256,  Views = 72,196,  Visitors = 36,319.  Thank you to my readers and the visitors for your support.

BTW, here’s my very first post: “Hello World”.  I had no idea what I was doing back then and no idea it would bloom into something as big as DevonTexas.com and, ironically, it’s gone all around the World! .

Another fascinating fact are the readers’ countries that come to visit.  They come from all over the world!  Mostly from the US, Canada, and the UK but also from Malaysia, China, Singapore, Philippines, Australia, western Europe, Eastern Europe, Russia… basically all the world.  Thank you to my friends from around the globe.

I hope all my visitors and readers found what they are looking for.   I hope devonTexas.com was helpful to you.  One comment that inspires me  even now is this:

Thank U so very, very much Devon Texas and to Google search! This article is such a blessing to me and hope it will be to many many more individuals throughout the world!

He goes on to describe his mother’s suffering with a problem potentially the same as what I went through and I can certainly feel for him and his mother.  What I really appreciate though was the fact that my writing about my experiences has contributed to the comfort of others.  It’s not often easy to write frankly about my “adventures” on dialysis and as a kidney patient.  There are some that are easy but most are difficult.  What drives me is that I know others are going through what I have too and my posts about it might help them.  In the case above it did and for that I’m thankful, inspired, and driven.

Thank you, again, to the visitors and readers and especially those who click on the “follow” button.  Every time I post, they receive a notice of that.  You can too.  Just click on the follow button and add me to your Facebook follows.  Also, please share this with your Facebook friends.

About DevonTexas

I am a person with ESRD (End Stage Renal Disease) which means my kidneys don't work. Forty or so years ago that would have been a death sentence but today there is Dialysis which means I can be hooked up to a machine that will clean my blood as the kidneys should. Three days a week, I go to a center and have too very large needles stuck in my arm to remove and replace my blood as it passes through a process where it's cleaned and the fluid is removed, a process taking a little over four hours each time. I want to advance knowledge about dialysis so that other patients can learn from my experience and mistakes. We shouldn't have to reinvent the wheel, eh? There is so much to be learned and experienced about our predicament. There are vast resources available to support us and enrich our lives but many patients don't know about them. There are also many issues that we have to deal with whether we want to or not. So I blog about them. All comments are confidential until I approve them. If you don't want your comment public, let me know and I will respect that. So, feel free to leave a comment. Enjoy.
