Today I received my latest lab results. Currently my function has remained the same and is at 18%. This is good news because it means I won't need to go onto dialysis at this time. A challenge we are facing at the moment is dealing with insurance denying payment for a Shingles vaccination. Mayo Clinic recommends that I receive this vaccine as it is a live virus vaccine and I can never receive it after transplant due to my suppressed immune system. Insurance would approve it if I were 50 or over. This vaccine costs over $250. It's uninsured expenses such as these where your donations really count. Please consider donating if you have not already done so as we have not yet reached our fundraising goals.
