Happy New Year!!!!!!!!

Welcome to 2020 everyone. In keeping with my tradition, there are eight exclamation points in the title (or subject line) since this is my eighth Happy New Year post in the history of this blog.

Here is what happened with the blog in 2019:

  • 3 new blog posts were written. (Down from 4 in 2018)
  • No new articles were reviewed.
  • 9 additional countries visited the blog, bringing the total to 159.
  • The blog received 14 spam comments in 2019. None were especially noteworthy, but if I had to choose a favorite it would be the one that began with this: "Hi! Someone in my Myspace group shared this website with us so I came to take a look."

In patient news, I believe I became aware of two more families affected by fibrinogen amyloidosis in 2019, and I know of one combined liver and kidney transplant that occurred in 2019 and another that almost occurred but was cancelled at the last minute. In personal news, I am still asymptomatic.

That's about it for 2019. I hope you all have a safe and healthy 2020.
