I want to learning what more I have to do to enable myself to get the transplant(s) that I need, before anything worse happens to my heart, lungs (vascular system).

I work out a minimum of 5-6 times per week, for around .75-1.5 hrs per session. This consists of 1/2 cardio, 1/2 weights. I watch what I eat, rarely eat out, and work as manager-in-training for a non-profit housing corporation.
I also manage a duplex. I have extensive computer experience. I love to stay in shape as well as have a thorough understanding of my health care needs. I work best with exact deadlines and work best when I can get started on something and continue it till I reach my goal (daily). All-in-All, I have been approaching those near me for a live donation, and I absolutely Need a Kidney Transplant. :)

Hi Matt

First off, a dialysis catheter caused the infection on my heart valve,, and when i was still on dialysis and ready to transplant, that valve was leaking and had to be changed out again..

The biggest challenge for me as far as transplant is the recovery..its 7 years later, i feel like im still recovering in a way..not alot of energy..sleepless nights, alot of meds,, sadly, sometimes i think it was easier being on dialysis,, i definately hated going 3 times a week for 3-4 hours, but i felt good after..they say im probably looking at yet another transplant in my lifetime,, just the thought of it makes me cringe, and will i do it again?..yes but with hesitation..i just pray they are wrong, just like they said they thought this one was gonna fail after 3-4 yrs,,hello..its been 7 years and all my levels are good..lol..yet im still stuck with this ugly fistula..haha, grrr...but i wish you so much luck, i do hope you get one, and anyone that is willing in your family, have them tested...i have my sisters kidney, and she was out of the hospital 3 days later and has not had one problem whatsoever donating and if i need another one, my oldest daughter is donating to me..:) chin up!! Sincerely Gail

There is a very successful group in Sudbury; that area has by far the highest donor registration rate in the province.  Would you like me to get you the contact info?  Also, are you on Facebook; many of us across the province use it daily to share info.

I have been busy myself this evening, getting applications together for our group to attend two more festivals.  That makes four that I have worked on today.  I am on LTD because people focus on what I can't do instead of what I can so I will let them pay me to do charitable work and hopefully save someone's life, albeit indirectly.  If things keep going like this, I may not have time to work full-time! :)
