Christmas Came Early

Twenty months after being "listed" for a kidney transplant and commencing the intake process with Hospital #1, I learned this week from Hospital #2 that tissue-type and antigen cross-match compatibility testing between my brother and me all came back as good news.

John has a few more tests to take, but it looks like I'm going to be getting a kidney.

This is great news. You may want to go to http://www.argi9solutions.com/sherry/video-larry-guffy.html. Larry has diabetes and had 6 heart attacks, a heart transplant and renal failure. The heart rejection drugs he was taking began to damage his kidneys and he was scheduled for dialysis and a kidney transplant. This is Nobel prize winning science and Clinical Studies. Both Dr. Joe and a Heart Institute use on every patient.

I am way behind in commenting on this, but your blog came into my mind recently while I was at the farmers market (meyer lemons were 5for a $1) and I thought it ought o see what was going on with you.

I offer my congratulations and my hope that all goes well for you.
