I was 65, as was my donor. No one mentioned an age limit at my center.

Do you know what the upper age limit may be to receive a kidney transplant?

In Britain it is 60, but they take the patient's physical health into consideration and can move that a bit up or down, depending.

I was 55.

I am not aware of an upper age limit, but each center may have its own rules or guidelines.

Hi Athena, I was 20

Thanks Cassandra. Do you know what the upper age limit may be to receive a kidney transplant?

How old were you when you received your kidney transplant?

Just remember the late great Bill Peckham took a trip on a raft down the Grand Canyon.  He took a next stage and some where on this site is a picture of him sitting in a raft with the Grand Canyon in the background.  What Bill showed us that with planning you can do just about anything.

I've loved "Bollywood" (films made in India) films for many years.  I love the epic stories with the dancing, the singing and the beautiful costumes.  We have to travel about half an hour to find a cinema that regularly shows the newest films released in the US.

So, imagine my surprise when a local cinema in my little city waaaaay in the western 'burbs of Chicago started devoting one screen (out of 18) to Indian films!  I couldn't believe it!  We have spent most of the past weekend watching the two films on offer.  Both were, as is the custom, about 3 hours long.  It was such fun.

The film we saw yesterday is in Telugu, the dominant language spoken in the south east of India.  As is also the custom, there was an epic fight scene at the end, where the good guy singlehandedly defeats a small army of baddies, accompanied by a song that has just one vocalist, and it was awesome!

So, for something just a little bit different, here is that song:

P.S.  I have no idea what the lyrics are in English.  "Take THAT, you dastardly fiend.", or "I can fight and smoke a cigarette at the same time because I'm so cool."

If you get a dog, consider naming it Henle.  It is appropriate.

The fact that it is PD limits it to a subset of D patients :(.
