Has anyone heard of an artificial kidney being made?

@contentandwell @retiredteacher @rosemarya @kamama94 @gaylea1 @colleenyoung @hopeful33250 @gingerw @cehunt57 I don't remember who all is following my story. Latest update: both Mayo and my insurance company have approved my kidney transplant and I am now on the UNOS list as an active candidate. My sister was trying to get approved to be a donor. She was scheduled for her test in mid June but had to reschedule because she was sick. When her sickness did not go away, she finally went to the doctor again. She had a collapsed lung and an enlarged spleen. Still waiting for test results, but doctors think she has some form of lymphoma. Should know by Wednesday. There are a lot of prayers being said for my sister right now.

@marvinjsturing I am glad to hear from you. I thought the other day that maybe you had some news. I wish it could all be good, but your approvals are really positive. I will pray that your sister gets well and in the meantime, maybe a donor will come available. I pray for you sister and I also pray for you. This, hopefully, is just a bump in the road, and soon things will be on the ready again.
Bless you and your sister that your transplant can take place and be successful.
@marvinjsturing Congratulations on the approval for a kidney transplant. I hope your sister will improve and that it is nothing too serious, not only because she could possibly be a donor for you, but just because she too deserves to be well. If it works out that she can be a donor after being treated for her lung and spleen, that's a bonus. If not her, I hope you do find a donor. It seems more common for people waiting for kidneys to have a live donor than for people waiting for liver transplants.
@marvinjsturing so happy for your acceptance, approval & listing on the kidney transplant list. You have waited a long time and this is an answer to many prayers. Now I assure you that more prayers are going out for your sister. God’s plan & timing can be trusted!

@marvinjsturing, There is no doubt in my mind that miracles will continue to happen for you as you begin this new phase of your kidney journey. I want you to know that I have added my prayers to those being offered for your sister and also for you.
