For the Record

I am now officially in end-stage kidney failure. GFR is down to 14%.

The good news is that after being temporarily derailed by some wonky blood work, I have been cleared medically as a candidate for transplant by the new hospital. My brother will go in for assessment as my donor in a few weeks, and we should know a lot more within a month.

Shit's getting real...
