Hello everyone! By now most of you know that I received my kidney/pancreas transplant 2/10/2016!! The surgery went awesome and I am recovering nicely :-) I have to stay in Seattle for about a month so I can be close to the hospital. I am already feeling better than I was prior to the transplant -- no more insulin or dialysis. It is a true miracle! Please continue to pray for me and that my new organs are happy in their new home and my body accepts them as if they belong to me! Please also keep the family of my donor in your thoughts and prayers, I am so grateful for this gift of life. I hope to meet the donors family someday to express my gratitude. This has most definitely changed my life and I feel so blessed. Hopefully in the next few weeks I will be able to stop taking a couple of the meds I am on. I currently take 32 pills in the morning and 15 at night. Hopefully we can get the morning down to 28 pills and evening to 12. Anyway, I just wanted to share my update with you all :-) while you are on my page, please sign my guest book!
