Hi folks,

Great news is that an amazing woman who happens to also work at Intel is going to donate her kidney to me! There are heroes still walking around in our world! I wanted to give you some information about how to track the progress of my upcoming kidney transplant and recovery. You can track our online journal and updates at http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/ericdishman/. You do have to sign up for a free account, and then email Ashley (asharms@frontier.com) to get the password to visit my update page. Please give this password only to trusted friends in our network—we don't need complete strangers tracking our every personal detail and movement on the web.

For the rest of 2012, I will likely be recovering at home, on quarantine, so you can reach me on my personal email at ericdishman@frontier.com, which I will answer as often as possible. It will be an adventurous autumn as I do my deep dive study of the U.S. healthcare system, hopefully returning to Intel no later than January 1st.

Thanks for your support.

- Eric and Ashley
