Laura is back on the cycler for the first time since early October.
It was a complete success with no alarms and a full night's sleep.

This is a huge deal.

She also met with the Lankenau Transplant folks yesterday and was put on the list for another year. We were briefed that our wait time for a compatible cadaver kidney is running about 5 more years.

Turns out there were 3 possible "swap" matches last year, but all 3 had "extra blood vessels" that made a transplant very risky for Laura.

She is blood type B (a rare type complicated by rare protein markers) if anyone might be interested in the donor program who is TYPE O or B (Rh + or -is ok as Rh factor is not used).

Contact Kristina Coiro, Transplant Coordinator at Lankenau Medical Center, Wynnewood, PA at 484-476-8485 if you would like to be tested for compatibility with Laura Amadio or to save potentially several lives by entering the "swap" program. This is completely confidential and you will remain anonymous throughout the process unless you choose to let us know.

If you do contact Kristina, thank you.

As another who is on a list waiting for a kidney I can only echo the plea for folks to consider a donor program. You are literally saving a life.

It is a huge step but please consider at least being an organ donor upon your passing. Thousand of kidney patients die each year for lack of kidneys available.

Thank you

Yes, it has been a while, but other than "She is in better spirits", not much to report. Still on the kidney transplant list; still waiting for the computer to find a match in the swap program.

Looking forward to doing some camping this spring,
Cabin Fever Big Time.
