Rendezvous with Kidney Destiny Again?

Chad from U of M called today and the second round of tests are looking better for the recipient and me. Wow! I have to submit another blood sample next week. That lab in Okemos is going to know me by first name. Great news though! I sure hope this is the next big step in going forward. If I feel anxious, imagine the recipient! Hopefully their next Christmas will be dialysis free.

Jackie is seeing a new nephrologist and something she told me today struck me in a good way. She said she has to see a different doctor than before because her former doctor only treats patients who are on dialysis. Jackie is off dialysis of course–woo hoo! What a wonderful thing.

OK, I will report after the next blood test. I will be glad when I don’t have to schlep my blood over to UPS anymore–ha ha no problem really.

  2. I had a GREAT appt. today with the new nephrologist! He’s a very special doctor because he donated a kidney to his wife, so he looks at the kidney dialysis and transplant processes in a different way. I also told him all about you and the wonderful gift that you are giving…he was very impressed!
