How little man knows and senses My need! My need of Love and Companionship.
I came "to draw men unto Me," and sweet it is to feel hearts drawing near in Love, not for help, as much is for tender comradeship.

I see you changed your profile picture again. I wanted to thank you for the turtle video and I posted it on my animal web site. It's amazing how animals help each other out and yet people think animals are dumb and without feeling. Thanks again, take care and stay well and strong.
Hugs, love, blessings, peace and friendship,
One day soon you will receive a kidney and you can get back in the swing of things and start your new journey in life. Your patience and faith are to be commended. Best of luck and always praying for you Jay. Take Care of yourself.
Thank you for the Happy Organ video, I enjoyed it and love the name. You too will soon have a happy organ and I pray every day that your kidney is on it's way to you soon.
Hugs, love, blessings, peace and friendship,
Hey my Pokey friend:
You don't look to shabby in the morning...lol! Thank you and I wish you a great day too.
You're the best Jay and I've been praying that your transplant is just days away; you so deserve to get back into life.
Love, hugs, blessings, peace, light, joy and friendship always,

If you were to suffer rejection and your new liver failed, do you think you should be entitled to another transplant?

"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…"
