Hopely this will be spread far and wide. Maybe, just maybe, it will prompt many people to think seriously about transplants donation.
My hope too! Maybe I don't talk about my experience as a living donor enough, might help. It was just never a big deal on my end - bigger deal for my daughter! I just remember having to spend some time on my back feeling like a turtle that had been flipped over after the operation - but that didn't last long. Otherwise I have to say one of the biggest thrills of my life was watching my zombie-like daughter (she didn't take well to dialysis) come back to life with the transplant! And I remember one of the nicest things anybody ever said to me was a nurse who said I "had given her birth for a 2nd time". My labor pains might have been she was able to talk back more after the transplant (I tell myself it is a sign of health).
Anyway, I should get back to my screaming meanie mode before anybody thinks I'm getting soft in my old age.
