Well, I'm on another roller coaster ride. My blood pressure has dropped so low that dialysis isn't working. My arms are swollen to twice their size and I'm having respiratory and heart issues. I'm going to have another dialysis tomorrow where they just pull off fluid. My nephrologist is really concerned but being at home makes me feel better than being in the hospital. Gary is having a hard time with all this because I keep spiraling downward. Please keep him in your prayers.
I'm waiting for a kidney transplant. I have some great friends who've volunteered to give me a kidney and hopefully one of them will be a match. If you'd like to be a kidney donor for me please let me know. All it takes is a simple blood test and a kind heart to get started.
Please consider giving a kidney to someone. I'm luck to have a few people lined up for testing. There are lots of people who have been on dialysis for years that need a donor. Be a hero. Give a kidney.
