Tomorrow marks the second anniversary of my dear friend Jackie getting her kidney! I can’t believe it. Time has flown. She has been through so much in the past two years because not only did she have a kidney transplanted IN, she also had to have one of her original kidneys removed. So two surgeries in a short space of time–eek. It is rare, most kidney recipients actually live their lives with three kidneys. The old ones atrophy and normally don’t cause trouble.
All that is behind her now, and she is free of dialysis. Hooray! Jackie has been my dear friend since we were thirteen. I am so proud of her courage. Looking forward to many, many more years!
