I want to find out the birthday of the donor. Then on that day, I will have about a 2 minute birthday celebration for the kidney with a cupcake or something, since that is about the ratio of me that will be having a birthday on that day.



..... oh, and I'd be very thankful as well. I can't offer him much, but I'd love to take him and his family out for dinner.

I had actually just started playing basketball again this past week since my dialysis surgery. I'll have to put that back on hold so I don't mess up something before the surgery. The interesting part of playing basketball while on peritoneal dialysis is that I surprise the heck out of people because I don't look like I can ball at all (not that I'm great, but I'm a better defender than I am a scorer). I'm carrying about 2 liters of extra dialysis liquid in my peritoneal cavity at any given moment, so I have an artificially stretched out belly and then I have a foam pad that is about 1.5 inches thick over my belly, so I look like I can't move. However, I still have strong legs from my sprinting days. My endurance is currently very poor, so I usually guard the slower guys, but when there is a switch on a screen, I see the guards' eyes light up thinking they have a major mismatch but it is never the easy drive to the hoop that they think it will be.

I hope they legalize organ cloning.

this is awesome news!

i have a sister-in-law who is an extremely bad diabetic and has kidney failure. she has started dialysis this year and her doctor has recommended her to be put on the list for a kidney. sad news is that she had gotten pregnant and lost her baby just last week. if u could, please PM me your situation. i would like to pass it along to her.

If she is on dialysis, she should definitely be on a transplant list IMO. I was on a list way before I started my dialysis.

Random stranger, huh? A good samaritan on ISH maybe?

Anyway, glad to hear it man. Read what you were going through earlier but never said anything to you. Wish I did, you PMed me some advice when I was going through some problems myself last year. Best of luck with the surgery, hope all goes well.
