    I got accepted at Covenant Medical Centers Transplant Program. One of my best friends (since 3rd grade) has been tested and is a match. She has gone through all her testing and has passed!!!!!!!

    So to the best news of all............ I will have my transplant on March 27th.

    I've had some recent medical issues, in fact, I'm typing this from a hospital bed. But, I can't imagine going thru a transplant.

    Best of luck to you dude.

    Yes, I can finally put closure on this adventure. I am actually going to miss the people at dialysis. They are a great group of people.

    Thanks everyone for your well wishes! I am so excited. I feel like I will have a new lease on life. Right now, I am very anemic and it makes me so tired all the time. I am lucky if I can get 2 loads of clothes washed in a day. I want my energy back... heck I'm only 35! I want my memory back (horrible memory since I have had kidney failure). I want my life back!!! My husband described our life perfectly the other day. He said " We are in our early 30's, we should be planning vacations, instead we are planning surgeries and hospital visits" And it is true..... I have had so many surgeries and hospital visits... doctor visits too. I am so sick of it. I am sick of not being able to drink more than 5 cups of fluid ( no way to my favorites.... cabbage...watermelon..... cantelope.... way to much fluids).

    So..... on March 27th I will have a new birthday. That is what it feels like... a new birth.


    Sorry for rambling....just couldn't stop typing. :star:
