Dear Friends and Family,

Since my last update many things have changed. I no longer do hemo dialysis, I am on manual peritoneal Dialysis 4 times a day . I have been in the hospital several times, including a trip in June where I had double pneumonia and a lot of fluid in my lungs. I’m still dealing with the problems from that one. I also had skin cancer removed from my scalp. Wear a hat people, lots of staples and stitches.

Well I am at Baylor hospital and am scheduled for triple bypass. Tuesdays, was admitted Thursday night for chest pain. At first they said I didn’t have a heart attack, but several hours later they said I had a small one.
I had hoped to plan for this surgery, but it didn’t work for that way. I will be out of work 6 to12 weeks .
I am hoping that after this surgery I can get back to evaluation for Transplant .
My kidney are getting worse and dialysis only does so much. It’s hard and frustrating to always be hooked up to something
Stop every thing and do dialysis every day , 4 times a day
But I’ll keep fighting and am determined to be stronger than this

The reason for my post is to give the latest in my journey for transplant. In November 2020 I had a stress test done as part of the evaluation. In February 2021 I revived a call saying there was a abnormality. On March 5th I had a heart cath and other test done. The result of cath was I have 3 major blockages in my arteries. Heart is fine, but the recommendation of the doctor and the medical team is for me to have a bypass.
We are still waiting on the results from my other testing before scheduling heart surgery. Once I am cleared for surgery, and recovered, I will be back on the road to hopefully getting on transplant list.
With this surgery pending and other testing I am trying to prepare mentally ,physically and financially for this long and very daunting road ahead.
I have appreciated your love and support,
