Thank you for your kind thoughts, Rosemary and Co! Yes! He is maintaining with a GFR of 13. The nephrologist last week asked him if he was ready to go on dialysis, and said “good answer” when my husband said No! Although he is bone shaking cold for about an hour a day, sweatshirts and heating blankets are a Godsend. As well as a heated massage chair. He is in good humour. And looking forward to an annual golf trip with 3 brothers and friends. He doesn’t dwell on the numbers, but continues to look ahead. Pre op screening is scheduled for Apr 1 at Mayo Scottsdale, and transplant day is scheduled for Apr 15. I send best wishes to all of you, recipients, donors and caregivers and thank all of you for sharing your journeys. Be well.
