Hey everyone, some Great news!!!
As of 12/21/2014 I have been placed on the kidney transplant lists. So that was a nice surprise for Christmas.
Not sure on wait time because I’m not on dialysis yet which we are trying to get all we can out of this kidney and be transplanted before having to go on dialysis.
A lot of different factors this go around. Will keep everyone updated when I get info.
Thanks for your continued support. Michael

Just an update as of 08/24/2014
As of today I’m still not on kidney transplant list. All my testing for it is done. Just don’t know what the hold up is. Anyways my Creatine is at 3.7 now which is a bit higher. Taking it day by day and praying things will work out for the better soon.
