Received two calls today from two different centers. Didn't get the first one but am heading for a hospital about an hour and a half away. Wish me luck. I'll be back as soon as I can

Hi miocean,

Wow! I hope this kidney works out for you! I'm sending lots of warm wishes your way for a successful transplant.

A lot of people don't realize that transplants are really a touch-and-go thing, often with a lot of 'false alarms', sometimes even at the very last minute they find that the organ isn't good enough or the match isn't entirely suitable. So I'm hoping this is a real one for you.
Warm Hugs,
