Well as some of you may know I've had my surgery, and doing well in my recovery. For the first time in years I feel almost normal if there is such a thing. Because I was pretty healthy to start and got a living kidney donation from a dear friend, my recovery has been exceptional.
Just the same it has not been easy. Numerous follow up appointments,testing, taking hundreds (100's) of pills of prescription medications a month are my new normal.
I know I still have a ways to go and 2017 will be the real test for our medical finances. With the operation and testing we maxed out our medical and have seen no medical bills for months now.
2017 we will be relying heavily on the help hope live funds, medicare and our insurance plan because those bills will be coming again. Because of your generosity I feel pretty good about the coming years and just want to thank you for coming to our aid in our time of need
Happy New Year

Maybe by now many of you know I had a successful Kidney Transplant on March 3rd 2016. I could not have done it without your support and generous donations. I am recovering well at a transplant house near Mayo Clinic in Rochester Mn. I hope to be home soon and return to live with my new kidney, which has given me a new lease on life.
Thank you Everyone
