Hi everyone! I'm new here and wanted to share my story. When I was 3 years old, I had a kidney transplant and my mom was the donor. I had a perfectly healthy for over 33 years until the kidney failed about 3 years ago. I started dialysis in October 2016 and it was going very well. Through the last 3 years, I got listed at 4 hospitals in Florida and on March 11, 2019, I received a call for a transplant at Florida Hosptial in Orlando. I had the transplant on March 12, 2019, and it was very successful. I'm now 2 weeks post and everything is going very well. I'm very blessed and grateful to my donor and his/her family which I didn't meet and they wanted to remain anonymous. I will forever be grateful to them and God! Praise God. I can't tell you how much my faith kept strong throughout this process. They say faith is unseen and I agree, ut on March 12, I saw faith and it was amazing. AMEN!
Blessed with a 2nd Kidney Transplant - Kidney Transplant
