Hey biker buddy,
I invited you to be my friend and left off the message. I would like to see us bikers organize and each TX Game Biking Team ride across their state each April for organ and tissue donor awareness. We could also use this to raise funds for the team to go to the games, but even more important to me, is that we be able to send our medal winners (some have world class speed) to the world games. See you at the TX games Let me know your thoughts.

If you were to suffer rejection and your new liver failed, do you think you should be entitled to another transplant?
You said; "Fair enough, but I am entitled to my own agency." That's true, but don't you owe it to the…"
"I’ll try to make this shorter as I accidentally deleted the comment I just made in response to Dave Goodman.
Weaning is not for everyone, it may be a fatal mistake to try it. You have been selected to receive a graft after a long and…"

"Hi, I'm two years out for Liver TP. Went into rejection after 3rd week. They had me on 4gm of Tacrolimus X 3. for a year, then 5mg X 2, and down to 2 x 2. My Tac level was 3.7 last test. Up from 3. They want you between 8 and 18. I was also on…"
"0.5 mg Prograf 3x/wk sounds weird. If you are really taking that dosage you may not need Prograf. My transplant date was May 2003. I have never had a rejection episode and after six years on Prograf alone I decided to taper off Prograf…"
