I received kidney transplant on December 9 2010 from my brother. I started out having cancer as a young child when i was 18 months old and received chemo to fight the cancer, I beat that, but a year later it came back and then I started chemo again. All the chemo I had in my childhood damaged my kidneys, heart, and my hearing. I am partially deaf. As I got older my heart got weaker and my kidneys got worse, I started getting all kinds of kidney infections and heart trouble. In 2000 I went into kidney failure, was put in hospital for a while but then as time passed I got all better again...
In 2006 i went into both kidney failure and heart failure. I have been seeing a cardiologist and nephrologist since then. I now have a defibrillator for my heart and was placed on the kidney transplant list July 2, 2010. I had a few donors willing to donate, but i was lucky enough for my first one tested to be a match!! My brother!! if i didnt find a match soon I was going to be on dialysis! I have 2 boys 13, 8(And 2 Dogs, yes they are my babies too!) that I need to stay healthy for since their father is not in their life. I also wanted to finish college to be an RN after i get all this behind me! I would like to make any friends on here who are just like me, so that I will become more comfortable about whats going on and get some kind of HOPE! I am scared to death and I dont know anyone who is going through what I am. God bless all of you and hope to hear from you soon!
OK I GOT GOOD NEWS MY TRANSPLANT DATE!! DECEMBER 9, 2010 WISH ME LUCK! ILL UPDATE SOON AFTER
Thanks for reading
