It's official! I'm slated to get my live-donor transplant in early December of this year! I'm very excited and nervous all at the same time. Despite only being on dialysis for 11 months, it's been quite the rollercoaster and there were a few times we had to ponder the possibility of me going back to hemo from PD. It also took a little longer for me to get cleared between having perotinitis and bad acid reflux, but thankfully the infection cleared up and I have my acid reflux under control now with medication.
For those of you who don't know, my step sister decided to start the donor process in March, and she was cleared in September. She was the 4th and last person to go through the donor process and I'm very fortunate and lucky that she changed her mind to go through this process! We're both very excited that this is finally happening, and our family and friends are excited too!
It's been a long journey, and I'm more than ready to see what it's like to have a functioning kidney since it's been so long! Thank you everyone for your ongoing support!
