I am happy to announce that I had a living donor transplant on April 17th 2015! My new kidney is functioning beautifully! I feel so humbled and blessed by all of the support and love through this experience. Most certainly thankful for my donor who has given me the gift of life. She will always be in my heart and literally a part of me! God bless her and her family forever!

It has been awhile since I have updated. I got bad news and it has taken me some time to process it. So, I have been put on temporary hold for my kidney transplant as the transplant team does not like the way my liver looks compared to last year. I will be having a liver biopsy to determine what is up and whether or not I need a liver transplant. Once this is complete and we have an action plan, I will resume my spot on the kidney list. That is where I sit right now. I admit that I spent the day I received this news crying my eyes out and sinking into despair. I am much better now and know that it is in my Heavenly Father's hands. He will not fail me! I'll keep everyone posted as to the outcome of this bump in the road. Chin up and one step in front of the other! Love to all.
