I had my routine, 2-year biopsy two weeks ago. Then at this week’s meeting with the team at Scripps, I got two thumbs up for my two-year check-up!
My kidney biopsy is clean and still no signs of my body trying to fight off the new kidney. Now only annual office visits from here on. (And no more biopsies!)
Pretty emotional with all this news. Very reflective on this journey of the last few years. I already considered myself very blessed by God, but somehow that got dialed way up and I ended up with TWO families – of course Stacy and the kids, who were so supportive through this journey; AND my Kidney Family, those in my kidney chain and their loved ones (a dozen beautiful people!). And my amazing cloud of friends & extended family humbles me with their undying support.
God is good. Life is good.
Below are the plaques on the Living Donor wall at Scripps Green Hospital for Emory, who donated her kidney on my behalf so I could get the kidney I needed from Glenn.
