I was called again a couple of nights ago for a kidney. This time it was a woman 68 years old. All of the kidneys I have been offered have been expanded criteria kidneys which don't last as long. I told them I probably wouldn't qualify for a transplant now because my hemoglobin is so low. Sooner or later everything will fall into place and the right kidney will come up for me.

Hi miocean,

That's encouraging news! You have to kiss a lot of frogs before finding your prince, so that must apply to kidneys too. :)

We're all rooting for you!

Big hug, :emoticon-hug:
