There has been a mass exodus at our apartment complex and as my husband put it, it is finally our turn to "blow this popsicle stand". Not sure what I am more afraid of; the neighbors, the staff or the structure. Beside being real nice, the new place is just 2 minutes from hubby's center. We drove and timed it -twice. A 2 minute drive is going to afford him a little more sleep in the morning. We're actually excited about that. Boy, you know you are adjusting to "dialysis life" when you get excited about something like THAT. But we are.  :rofl;

My name is Bruce and I am the caregiver for my daughter Holly who is 26 years old and received her kidney transplant on December 22, 2016 :)
Holly's Facebook Kidney  page: https://www.facebook.com/Hollys.transplantpage/

Holly had a heart transplant at the age of 5 1/2 months in 1990. Heart is still doing GREAT!  :thumbup;
Holly was on hemodialysis for 2.5 years-We did NXStage home hemo from January 2016 to December 22, 2016
Holly's best Christmas ever occurred on December 22, 2016 when a compassionate family in their time of grief gave Holly the ultimate gift...a kidney!

 :rant; You all know the calls. The ones you (or your spouse with ESRD get when someone hasn't heard from you in a while. More like you haven't responded to their political cartoon emails in a while so they call you on the telephone instead to ask "how are things? "have you been getting our email?" and to add 'that perhaps the 2 of you should go golfing sometime". Then nothing. For 12 months. Just dead air space and political cartoons emailed at various times of the week. And still no tee-time. Do they make these phone calls just to check to see if you're still alive? And what if you aren't? Then what do they do (or who do they call)? I mean, they are obviously not interested in knowing your day-to-day stuff. They just think it their duty to check and slide a mirror under your nose to see if you are still breathing. The rest of the year you are free from their curiosity. Do they return to their office to announce "yep! He's still alive!" And then what? Anybody care? Those that care are the ones that follow thru with their promises. But the ones doing the annual breath-check are about as appreciated as those scam calls we get for fake charities.  :rant;
