So...looks like parathyroid surgery is in my near future. At least a 2 day stay in the hospital because I'll have to Dialyze the next day. Should be on a Thursday. Then there's nothing standing in the way of transplant. Just going with the flow now chasing this Kidney Transplant not knowing if the end result will truly be worth all the pain and sacrifice. The things you do when you know your next breath isn't promised...

It's been a journey full of adversity. As it stands since my last update the donor I had back in May was diagnosed with an anuyerism on her kidney during the 3rd round of testing for our kidney match. The last update I had was that I was on the wait list but on hold. Completely disappointing but "when life gives you lemons...you Live #Lemonadelife." So far that's been par for the course.
At this point my parathyroid levels are high putting me at risk for kidney stones to develop after my kidney transplant. So right now I'm in a hold status. Next step possibilities are have a partial or full removal of my parathyroid glands. Currently my Dr. in my opinion is dragging his feet in addressing this issue. It's been a point of frustration for the last few weeks. In the meantime I plan to research any natural methods of reducing my parathyroid levels. I also would like to lose another 10lbs just for my own personal satisfaction.
I plan on turning up the pressure but I'm always torn with rushing the natural course of things. My point of frustration is that I'm tired of living in the quality of life I've been living. I'm extremely fatigued most of the time. My pain threshold seems to be decreasing and I'm constantly in pain and discomfort from a number of situations related to my kidney health.
So far I have not been able to locate a quality Screen Printing company with the same level of quality and products and my in-stock apparel items are getting low. All of my inventory is children's t-shirts and women's t-shirts and tank tops. I am in discussions about the future of #Lemonadelife apparel and how it can help others after my kidney transplant. Hopefully I'll be able to figure out a way to help others with sponsorships that support kidney health and not corporate greed and companies with conflicting interests. I will try to keep you all updated regularly.
