Some Good News


#1

I’ll keep this short…

Mrs casinobay was born with cystic fibrosis. 12 years ago she had a double lung transplant that saved her life. Her lungs are currently working at 128%…so, all good there.
One of the downsides of the immunosuppressant drugs she takes is that it can affect her kidney function. He kidneys were working at 14%.
She was put on the kidney transplant list for deceased donors. I was going through all the tests to see if I could be a live donor and for me to donate one of my kidneys to her (something about inserting a rather large organ into my wife…) and it looked like this was going to happen in 2 months time or so,

until…

Saturday evening we got a call from the transplant co-ordinator to say that they had a kidney lined up for her. Get to hospital immediately! Transplant was completed successfully yesterday evening and all is good!

They’re okay thanks - both are still young (under 5), but it doesn’t seem to be causing them any problems so far (the youngest one is growing like a weed just now). Hopefully the medical advances can continue being made.
