Update 8/30/2017 As most of you know my brother has been going through testing to be my donor. He was eliminated today, and will not be able to donate his kidney. So once again we are searching for someone willing to go through testing to become my donor. Any blood type can qualify. If you are at all interested give IU Transplant a call at (317)944-4370 or 1-800-382-4602. They will ask you questions to see if you qualify before going through any tests. I am still doing dialysis at home. I have been able to wean my treatments down to 2x/day. I get tired easily and take naps most afternoons. I am looking forward to having my old life back. Please think about being a donor and share with your family and friends. As always say some extra prayers for my family!
Much love, Chandra
