I started this blog to chronicle my kidney transplant. As friends and family will know, I was diagnosed with iGA kidney disease and had only 8% of my kidney function left at time of transplant. I avoided dialysis had a kidney transplant at Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas on February 12th. (Ironically, this the hospital where I was born.)
My good friend and lawyer colleague, Keith Langston, volunteered to give me a kidney. Keith was all in from day one. The day he found out he called me and submitted an application within an hour. Obviously, I’m overwhelmed at his generosity. Thank you Keith.
I hope to add to this site daily and have a few pictures as well. Hopefully, it will be informative, interesting and fun. You can subscribe to the “RSS” feed to make sure you are notified of updates.
Thanks for all your prayers, thoughts and concerns. They are all coveted and appreciated. Friends and family are a wonderfully thing.
Read on to see the wonderful story of the gift from Keith and Kate Langston, my journey through the process and the wonderful support that we all have received from friends and family. I hope that it will uplift with the grace that we can all give each other.
