Another Transplant Anniversary

Tomorrow, Nov. 3rd marks my 15th year as a kidney and pancreas transplant recipient.  Seems like only yesterday I was strapped to a dialysis machine just to keep my going.  15 years of happiness, depression, crying and wondering about many things.  I'm glad I made it this far.  Walking through fire just to get to where I am now is incredible.  For those of you who are still waiting for your transplants or know someone who is waiting, sometimes walking through fire is the only way to reach the light at the end of the tunnel.  Just keep moving, keep fighting, keep hoping.  That light is within reach.

  • Congratulations Lazaro. I get it completely. I'm 16 years post kidney tx and 10 1/2 years post pancreas. Like you, I've had ups and downs but I keep moving forward. It's the only way to go. And it's been worth every step.
