Will You Pee For Me?

 
After more than a decade of knowing we’d need a transplant, and after nearly six months of looking, we are so excited to announce that we found a donor!

That was me.

Less than a week after finding our donor was a match, we went into surgery. That surgery was three years ago today.

Six hours after surgery I was in recovery. Six hours later, I was out of bed and walking around the floor.

How did I find out my kidneys were failing? I went in for an annual checkup and had my urine sent to the lab. Due to a large amount of protein in the results, I went back for a biopsy leading to the discovery of FSGS.

During your next check up, ask if they can run a urinalysis. It really is that simple.
