I just celebrated my 40th Anniversary, post transplant last Sunday! These days it's more common for a live-related donor but still pretty darn good for a cadaveric transplant, especially considering when I got the transplant I was told it would last about 8 years, 15 at best!! Thanking God for the era I was born in and His grace and mercy on me. My mother was a WWII nurse and people with kidney failure just died back then. I am feeling great, I'm doing my bookkeeping work and working with the homeless and needy in the church, Bollywood Dancing and everything else I love. The performance season will start for me next month- so excited!! Tonight I'm going to a special dinner out with my husband to celebrate my 40th. Still with every year that passes, I wonder about the donor and how I could find out who he or she was.... See More
