This thread reminds me of a post to my blog Tasty Kidney Pie in September, 2006 - http://blog.360.yahoo.com/blog-ZOinGoMlc6Ob0cYOq_REylepo7tocLwF6N_bBg6HWyEn0A--?cq=1&p=20
Here it is:
I recently wrote this letter to NxStage's President/CEO Jeffrey Burbank. After rereading it I thought well let's just post it and see if anyone else has seen the same results.
Here goes. . .
I'd appreciate you forwarding this brief note of thanks to Jeffrey Burbank.
You can find my personal story on Home Dialysis Central where I highlight many of the positive changes that NxStage has brought to my life -
But, one thing that I'm really thankful for, which you don't see too often on the listserves, is the return of my libido. I'm note joking here. When it is gone you don't really miss it, but when its there you wouldn't want to lose it for the world. So, Jeffrey thank you very much.
By the way, I mean this in the purest sense. I married the girl who became my high school sweetheart in 1981.
Anyway, you may want to pursue this angle a bit more in your marketing. Who needs Viagra when you have a NxStage instead of one of those three times a week machines?

By the way I received a nice response from Jeffrey.
Another piece of good news is my wife no longer thinks I'm on the brink of death which was a real hurdle to intimacy.
