HI Alisa

Welcome to our world!  Love to see your ART work!  I am promising myself that I will get back to my art. Today I wrote a poem (so that is a start).

Welcome Alisa. You will find this to be a great site for transplant (tx) persons to access. I also had a Kidney tx in Michigan.

Take care, nice to see you post 12 years.

Mr. T
