Semi-Annual Check in

Hey people! If you're reading this, I hope you're doing well.  I'm doing well, kidney wise, thank you!  Just celebrated three years with the new transplant.  Besides a minor scare earlier this summer where I got violently ill and as a result, dehydrated, I'm doing well.


Still, three years out, I'd say one of the biggest hurdles to overcome in living with a transplant is your mental state.  Sometimes, I still live in fear of dialysis.  I live in fear of losing the transplant, and I have to work very hard to cope with that.

Well, this is just a short check in.  Again, maybe someday I'll have more drain dribble for you, but for now - just keep living.
