"Hi Karen. Thank you for the message. As you suggested, I changed my photo. I also posted a message to the blog as I am trying to help my niece find housing for her transplant in Los Angeles. I'm hoping this site might help connect…"
My niece has been approved for a kidney transplant at Cedar's Sinai in LA but hasn't found an affordable place to stay for the three months following the transplant. Does anyone know of a place or have a suggestion on how to find a place. Her social worker did give her a list of hotels/motels but they are out of her price range. She is doing some fund raising to help cover expenses. Any ideas would be appreciated. Thank you.See More

I have had two liver transplants, one in 2012 and one in 2013. I have been in chronic rejection for 2 years. My liver enzymes are trending downward which is great, bur I live with horrible itching daily. Has anyone experienced this and if so, how or what can I use to stop the itch? The itching is mostly in my feet and hands, but sometimes all over my body. It's not really the skin that itches, It's under the skin! It kind of feels like the itching is in my veins....running through the blood. Cold water is all that seems to temporarily take it away. Heat triggers it! Please respond if anyone knows more than I do.Thank you,KathySee More
