Share how your transplant experience changed your life?
I was very very sick after my transplant and was in the hospital for almost 4 months. 3 1/2 of those months was spent in Intensive Care on a ventlator in a drug induced coma. Survivng that has helped me see that every moment is a bonus and life is GREAT! The love and support that I received while I was sick was astounding.
Share whatever information you want us to know about you
I have been very hesitant to share my story with other transplant (or future transplant) people because of how sick I was. I'm not able to tell a nice story about waking up and feeling great and how fast the recovery was. I felt fine for 24 hours and then ended up in ICU. I had several setbacks while I was in Intensive Care and the pancreas I received eventually rejected and was removed. The kidney I received is working very well. My post transplant life is great. I work full time and enjoy life to the fullest. I have a wonderful husband that I love dearly. I'm so glad I am able to live life without dialysis. The grace of God saw me through my illness and I vow to never take anything for granted.
Share your interests and hobbies
I like reading, cooking,listening to the blues and motorcycle riding (I am the passenger, not the driver).
