I've had an amazing summer. I am so, so grateful. BUT, it's been 6 months since I was told that I would have 24 months before needing a transplant (or dialysis) in order to live. My blood pressure is much higher than it has been, and my numbers are slowly and steadily rising. I still feel pretty good. I have my schedule down to a science so I am able to get through everything that I would like to do. The only time it becomes a problem is when there is something "extra" to do. Last weekend I drove to Toronto for a fitness conference and it took me until my day off on Tuesday to recover from it. I am slowly learning to say no to more things and put my health first.
We still don't have any leads for matches, and we won't likely find one in the area. I will be relying on the databases they have created in order to find a match. As always, in the meantime, I will just keep doing what I'm doing and modifying when need be.
