Thinking good thoughts

My brother Buzz just called to tell me that he is getting a new kidney today. I am so happy for him, he has waited so long! Buzz lives in Toronto. He has suffered from a pernicious kidney disease called FSGS for many years and has been on the transplant list for a very long time. I am so grateful that he is getting a new organ. Please wish him well!

My good friend Bryan went through this about five years ago. It not only saved his life, but dramatically improved his quality of life (no more dialysis). All the best to your brother Buzz.

My sister lost kidney function in 1990 and got a donor kidney a couple of years later... 20+ years ago. She is doing pretty well. I hope Buzz does as well!

Thanks for your good thoughts. He has been on dialysis a long time and it has been rocky of late. Keeping my fingers crossed!
