2018, A New Year and More Hope

I thought 2017 was going to be the year of the kidney. I had high hopes of receiving my life saving kidney transplant. I dreamed of life free of dialysis and filled with warm baths and swimming pools. If you recall, I was so close to having my dreams become a reality.

Over the last two months, I’ve reflected upon what happened and why I did not receive my transplant then. I learned later on why the kidney was not donated to me and I am at peace with it all. I am confident and truly believe that everything happened for a reason and that my perfect match is waiting for me in the near future. 

2018 will be the year! 

I want to thank everyone who has supported and comforted me this past year. I have appreciated all the prayers and thoughts my way...keep them coming! 

I am grateful to be alive, work, and surround myself with people who care about me.
