So, I’m posting this because everyone is asking and I’m pretty overwhelmed with this and work, so here’s what’s going on today in #TinyFabKidney world:
My team of doctors, advocates, social worker, etc., meet today at noon to discuss my case. They have to all agree on me being “approved” as a donor, first of all. Reading through the results of all my exams (they gave me a copy of EVERYTHING), there should be no reason not to approve me.
Second they have to figure out which kidney to take. My left kidney has a couple extra veins/arteries, which won’t hurt me at all. My kidneys are perfect in MY body right now, but if there is too much to reattach, there could be problems. The right kidney is a better candidate.
Then, they call me to let me know the results. If all goes well, I will be scheduling the surgery this week. I am planning on the 1st or 2nd week of April.
Please RT this, pass it on however you can. It will avoid unanswered questions, but also give me a bit of a break in spreading the news. :}
