I’m on the transplant list!

After 17 months on dialysis, and countless medical tests, I am happy to report that I am on the kidney transplant list. I was initially told that being on one list, I could expect a wait time of 3–5 years. I’m hoping that being on two lists, I can cut my wait time in half. So if you are healthy, normal weight, and have Type A blood, step to the front of the line. Living donors work best, and I definitely want this to work.
