Share how your transplant experience changed your life?

There are no words to express gratitude for having been given a new life. It is so awesome to be alive, breathing in fresh air, watching grandkids grow up, see the sun rise and set and appreciating each day much more than I did before. I also try to be an advocate of organ donation whenever I can.

  • Happy Birthday Carole

  •   Happy Birthday Carole ! 

  • Thanks for your kinds remarks Carol, life can take us to unknown places, let's see where it takes us! See you around this amazing community of survivors.

  • Carole, I've been reluctant to logon this website, and have been keeping busy with exercise, meds, rest, home and life management for the most part, still 'treading water' as I am too healthy for Tx, per the last Clinic at UTSW.  You are so nice to stay in touch and continue your fellowship here since your Tx. 

  • Thank you im honored to be part of this group

  • Carole, Thank you for your comment. I know it is a lot of decisions to be made with this, and even with all the tests, I may not be eligible, so maybe I am worrying for nothing!! Appreciate your offer of advice, and do not be surprised if I take you up on it.  You live a bit south east of me, I am west of Waco, but the hospital is in Temple.  This is a  new program, so there is no track record to go by.......Thanks for the good advice.


  • Thanks Carole. Good to be here.

  • Aw! Thank you for the comments of appreciation for caregivers! And I am so glad to hear that you're doing well! Baylor is an amazing facility!within the first 9 days of 2013, They've done 10 liver and kidney transplants!
  • Thank you Carole! Your thoughtful comment is very much appreciated :)

  • Happy Birthday to u and many more.
