Thanks for visiting my Corner of the Mind.

Friday January 16 was 13 weeks since the transplant.  I'm still doing great.  I haven't posted in almost two months but it's a new year (Happy 2015 everyone!) and a new me (well, at least a "newer" me, one with a functioning kidney).

I've gained back about 20 pounds (new picture coming soon!) and am walking and doing some light exercise every day.  I'm looking normal and healthy again.  It's been a long time since I felt this good.

This blog started as a way to trace my journey through kidney failure and transplantation.  Now it's all about living post-transplant.  Hopefully I'll never have to document another transplant, at least not one for me.

Thanks for reading and checking in with me.  The holidays were fantastic - it's so wonderful to be alive!

To healthy kidneys in 2015 and beyond!


Just to make sure we’re all on the same page, I am NOT a doctor.  Sometimes I may sound like I know what I’m talking about from a medical perspective, but I am not a medical professional.  I encourage you to ask me questions in the comments section about kidney-related problems, but nothing I may say in these blogs or in comments should be construed as medical advice.  I have no experience as a doctor, nor do I have any kind of medical license.  The words on this page represent my opinions (even when I present the information as factual) and in no way represent actual medical evidence.  My opinions are based on my own personal experiences, information I’ve gathered from the internet, and discussions I’ve had with my nurses and doctors.  Any medical inaccuracies (or discrepancies) are my own.
