Hello my family & friends! It's been a while since I've been on here to update, lots of things going on..... First & foremost, I am now officially on the National Donor List as of 06/09/14!! Yippee! Just had my yearly stress test this past Monday, 7/7/14 and I did just fine :) End of next week, I get the echo. Now that I'm on the list, I have to send them a vial of blood each month...will be drawn with my monthly lab work at Quest, gets shipped out Fed Ex to Tampa General. As of this date, I am still NOT on dialysis, however; I think the days are drawing closer to when I will need to use it. My kidney function is still at 9, but I've been getting nauseous a few times a week. So, my dr wants Brian to sign up & start taking the classes to do home dialysis. Oh how I pray I don't need dialysis, but realistically it's been a little over 1 1/2 years since I had fistula done. If it's meant to be, so be it. My potential donor has new health issues, sad to say she can't donate a kidney to me. SO, I am on the lookout for someone O+ willing to get tested & if a match...donate me a kidney. I was informed the waiting list is approx. 3 years...I pray my kidney holds out but whatever the outcome, I thank the good Lord for keeping me going these past few years. I know my calling is to spread the word on His miraculous healing of me on several occasions. Yes, He is not ready for me yet. A personal shout out of thanks to my brother David, who still donates money into this fund. I love you Dave! :) OK, wishing everyone a great weekend, & may God bless you all today and everyday!

Good morning all! I am doing fantastic today! I thank God everyday that I wake up & in no pain, most of all, for NOT being on dialysis! My numbers are improving, and I may have this thing under wraps...will know in a couple of weeks if things work out as planned. Just have to wait & see. Will let you know how things so as I find out. Love to all of you...I am so happy & thankful that you are in my life & have helped me as you've done, what with donating & praying, I will have my kidney THIS year, God willing!
