A very wonderful person passed away in July and I received one of the Kidneys they wanted donated. I don't know who it was or really anything about them. I am just grateful that they signed up to be a donor. So far I am doing quite well. There have been a couple of complications but all in all it has been great. Not having to be on dialysis is an incredible feeling of freedom. I'm looking forward to a healthy future with my family. Thank you everyone that has donated to me the funds have helped me pay for all the meds I get to take now.. approximately 50 - 60 pills a day. I hear that that will go down as time goes on.

wonderful news, I got my transplant on July 13. The surgery went well and I was home in 4 days, Now recovery begins. So far so good, no complications. Please consider still donating to me. Its going to be several weeks before I go back to work and Oregon doesn't offer short term disability nor does my office. I have some really nice writing pens that I am selling if you are interested in a pen and donate to me I would be happy to send you some. They are purple and have a smile on them and say "smile, it confuses people"
