At 43 years old, I was my Dad's living kidney donor -- he was 70 1/2 at surgery. It's now about 10 1/2 years later and I'm doing VERY WELL and he's doing pretty darn well! We're looking forward to celebrating his 81st birthday next month.
The picture below was taken moments before I was wheeled in for my surgery. It's one of my favorite pictures as it marked the BEFORE.... we have SOOOO many more pictures together as a family since then, as we celebrated MANY milestones -- all because my Dad got his LIFE back! I'm willing to talk/write to anyone who has any doubts or any questions, or even just to share great stories -- anytime. -debi
