It's amazing how often I now notice stories about living donor transplants. Here's a particularly cool one from today's New York Times.
By the way, update from my doctor visit in December: I'm as healthy as can be. All my numbers looked great--including my creatinine, which came down from a 1.2 after surgery to a 1.0 (normal levels range from 0.5-1.2). Next checkup in June! Rene and I were actually able to together celebrate our health on Christmas Eve, as she and Nancy stopped in to my dad's house on their trip to visit family in North Carolina. I'll post pictures soon.
Hope the new year is treating everyone beautifully.
