I had my transplant April 13th! It was to most amazing gift but it was the most painful thing I have gone through. No more dialysis!!!! Instead a hand full of pills  but swallowing pills is better then dialysis. Uncle Jim is doing good he is in pain but it is expected the took his kidney. Let me tell you his kidney "Lefty" makes me pee like I have never peed in my life. I will check in again soon I am just not feeling very well and the pain is coming back which means the Vicodon is wearing off.  Thank you for all the prayers Uncle Jim and I appreciate it all.

I GOT A KIDNEY!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well Uncle Jim has passed and he is my donor!!! I am so excited! Everyone is SO excited!!! We went over to Grandpas with Dom and desserts. Today was a great day and I am so grateful for this gift my uncle is giving me. Keep us in your thoughts. I love you all and thank you for all of your support! Uncle Jim you are giving me my life back and I don't know how to ever express to you how much I appreciate it. I love you... (The food pictures are for my sister Callie. When she was down here she documented everything even all the food so I had to do it for her.)

Had my results from my kt/v and the came back that I have a low average  which means I would need to be on the cycler longer the other info was inconclusive. They also upped one of my BP meds because my dialectic number is in the 90's and has been for the past 3 weeks. Oh and he gave me something for the nausea it works a little but then it comes back with avenges. I have a fever  and have kept it all day it doesn't seem to have anything to do with dialysis since my bags are not cloudy and I have no cramping pain in my belly so that is all positive. I'm still really tired and getting more crabby with certain "idiots" in the world but what are you going to do? You can't change people and there is NO reason I should be stressing myself over the petty things in life I have more important things I need to stay focused on...kidney and staying as healthy as possible and right now I am not. I miss my dad and he has only been gone for 2 days but it is nice having him around I wish my step-mom could come out too though. Well Uncle Jim landed and is resting at Grandpa's tests start at 8am tomorrow morning. Well I am going to go play with Maxy he looks like he needs a belly rub.

Well this weekend was busy busy busy but it was great! Saturday was the kidney walk and I got to meet Grizz Chapman from 30 Rock. He had a kidney transplant! Being at the walk was great my dad and Callie came down and it was great hanging out with Callie and Lins after the walk we went and got starfish tats on the top of our feet hurt like hell but totally worth it I love my sisters and I am glad we got to do that. Oh and I also got to help Grizz and his donor Ryan cut the ribbon which was AWESOME!!!!!!!! After the walk I paid for it though I didn't drink enough water so I have been feeling a little crappy probably didn't help that I missed my 10 dialysis. Uncle Jim will be here tomorrow and start testing Wed. Fingers crossed everyone. I better go lay down feeling a little crappy again. Night all
