Great shot you guys, but we already have a store for the graphic. Now there is NO excuse for you two not to make a rally.

Here's the authentic Rivettes graphic and store link...

Rivettes

Ours was entirely a women's group effort done in 2006, I had the background with rivets, Steph chose Rosie as our role model, Jamie customized the text and set up the store while Georgia and Steph came up with our byline the Airesses of Sass, Sass standing for Savvy Airstream (Forum) Sisters Steering (Institute.) Note the lower right hand corner.

Sharon, that is such good news for Peter. If you can, please tell how the Islets transplant works. It's not the whole pancreas? Our Steve has refused kidney/pancreas transplant though he qualified, like Peter, after all the testing, which truly is rigorous. He has opted for dialysis, but the idea of totally ending the diabetes after a lifetime of it is goosebumpy! Safe travels while on this trip. We just returned after two weeks on the shore of Lake Superior in northern Minnesota...so cooooool. And Missouri is SO hot and muggy in contrast. ~G

Keep in touch - let me know when & where and we'll try to work something out!

Well it has been terrible getting wifi this trip...right now is my first chance since my week in the glacier park.

I am in a KOA at Dubois MT and heading toward Denver in the morning - it is about a 5 hour drive - sorry for the heads up notice. drop me your address and if it is okay to visit - not sure when your Knee surgery is. If it is inconvenient - no worries - I am blowing through all my visits and even got Diane in the wrong State for heavens sake.

Trying to rush home now as Peter just got the call today that he is good to go with the last of his tests so I really don't want to make him wait - and I have over 2000 miles to go to get home.

Sorry no pics yet they will have to wait till I get a good signal - as it is I am having to now sit infront of the KOA office to get a signal and being eaten alive with bugs!!!!

I will pick up mail as soon as I find a hot spot in Denver sometime late tomorrow.

my email is spkallaste@sympatico.ca

Hope the timing is okay......

Short version....the islets are transfused through a tube into the Liver through a tiny incision in the back of the ribs.

There is a trade off though and that is the immune surpresent drugs which they have to be on for life. The program has had great success but there are a few people that just don't get through it and opt to let the islets die and come off the drugs and go back to needles or the pump.

I will write more and give you links when I get them.

Sharon hope you can get to the RMVR rally while you are out there. Have you met up with Diane yet? It seems like ages since you last posted.

I am afraid I am a week too early...and have to keep truckin as they say.

Just drove down from Dubois to Rawlings and now heading to Larame.

The vista views along 287 WY were simply breath taking - such vastness it is unimaginable being from the east where everything is so compact and trees blocking your views.

I have really lucked out with the weather.

This shot taken at the edge of Teton National Park just outside of Yellowstone

Girls are enjoying the view too so much that they just closed their eyes in awe!!!

Hmmm...DuBois MT > 5 hrs? I don't think so...it's 4 hours from Denver to Laramie...I used to travel there for business regularly. Oh well, maybe you've picked up some downhill speed coming out of Canada, eh?!

Check your PM Sharon - I sent you my address & cell #.
