It’s transplant time! I am here at UW-Madison waiting for transplant scheduled for tomorrow morning. I am feeling an entire mix of emotions right now. Wish me the best of luck. I am going to need it!

I had surgery for the catheter for the start of dialysis on Friday. It is a Thursday as I type this and I have to say as exhausted as I am, I am still standing proud and getting complimented about being strong and determined. I have taken a medical leave from work recently, but it was needed. I still am part of my school’s Phi Theta Kappa and Sheboygan Leadership Board and volunteer with the Sheboygan Jaycees. I recently fell in love with another organization in the community that I will be looking into helping as well. I have that on top of going to school full time and home life. I want to make a difference. Whether that be by myself or with a group, what is important is the time and effort put in to an event or fundraiser or whatever project it may be. I LOVE to know that I am part of the reason that someone is smiling today. It is not hard. Help and volunteer when you can. It will change you as a person.
