  • I feel your pain Shahariar and my answer was the same.  They are right in front of you!  I would not let anything get in the way of surviving to see them grow to men and be with them.  No price was to great and no ordeal to to unbearable to me.  At 57, now I am facing it again, dialysis, work up testing, and hopefully a 2nd transplant.  When God gives you gifts, you must cherish them.  Let them be your will to endure all.  Good luck!

  • Thanx but all r not in our control Kerry , we can oly try.Yes i m trying with positive attitude. I m much better now, tx was good. Just now playing with my kids. Pray for us. Bye----
  • I feel a great deal of sympathy for you. Facing the physical, emotional and financial burden of a transplant at your age must be distressing, especially in the midst of growing a family. My children were already grown when I became ill, and that was truly a blessing at the time. It is my hope that you are able to regain some degree of normalcy in your life and embrace the perfect love of your children. Godspeed.
  • I am a type 1 diabetic, since I turned 19. (I'm 53 now)  I had just about every complication that you could name during that time (I lost vision in my left eye because of retinopathy, have developed extreme neuropathy in my legs, to the point that I'm in a wheelchair now) Finally, my kidneys failed in 2008.  I had to go to dialysis three times a week. (Which totally sucked, I must say!) I have six brothers, and they were all tested to see if any of them could give me a kidney.  They are all B's, and I am an A.  Luckily for me, both of my sons are A's, and my husband is an O.  My oldest son (He was 25 then) Drew, gave me his kidney.  That was in 2010, and I am doing great! You have to keep your attitude positive, Shahariar!  Sometimes things can seem pretty overwhelming, but you will make it through!  You know your sweet kids are depending on you.  You can do it!  Sometimes the going can get really rough, but even though it seems dark now, it won;t be that way forever!
