I'm again after 5 years on the list and 4 years on dialysis have been fortunate enough to have been transplanted for a second time and final time. I received my 2nd kidney transplant Feb. 21, 2020 at University Hospital in Augusta, GA. Thank you for all the thoughts and prayers. Kidney was a bit sleepy but has finally kicked in.

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
