Will I Ever Get Rid of This Kidney?

Chad from University of Michigan called and they haven’t found a match for me in the UM database. He suggested that I enter the University of Toledo Medical Center program. UT and U of M are partners in kidney transplantation. UT has been a pioneer in paired and altruistic donation so it sounds good.  UT began the first computer based computer kidney matching and they seem to be reknowned for kidney transplant surgery so I should be in good hands.

I hope the surgery will be at U of M and the partnering just means patients come from Ohio but if it is in Toledo that will be OK. It will be further for my family to drive but it’s not like it is across the country. We are lucky to have two good hospitals so close to us in lower Michigan.

I was beginning to think this was all for naught. I will find out more next week. I started my first tests almost a year ago so let’s get this kidney show on the road!
