Hello all!
I have not posted on this board in forever.  I do post on the FB page.  Justin is still doing PD.  He has been approved for transplant but are not having lots of luck with our donors.  Justin's little brother is being tested now.  I hope everyone is still fighting the good fight.  There is a link to my FB in my profile if anyone would like to be friends.

This board was such a huge help to me in the early days.  Your knowledge and kindness overwhelmed me. 

Thank you all!   :grouphug;

Hi Bambino Bear!  I went back and read some of your posts and it sounds like you and your husband do a great job with PD!  I hope you guys get the call soon.  Dialysis really does suck!

One thing I believe our kidney afflictions are teaching us, to be patient.  Everything will happen when the time is right, and not before.

Anticipation, anxiety, both can be huge stressors to deal with.  But we handle these daily.

I'll be Praying his time is near.

I remember your name and face so it couldn't have been that long ago cause my memory ain't spit!

Glad to hear you both are still doing alright.

Take Care,
