  • He's listed!

    Hi friends,

    Been away from the site for almost a month (crazy work schedule) but I wanted to share with everyone, we got the call yesterday that he has finally been listed at Cedars Sinai.

    Now the live donors can begin the testing and we'll see what happens.

    It's all very real now. Sigh....

        That's really GREAT news. I hope all of the other testing goes fast and they find a match for him really fast.

          Such GREAT news!! Imagine him in the future NOT on dialysis once again and healthier this time!
          Are you going to be able to test for him yourself?? Or did your blood type rule you out? I cant remember. Does he have many live donors able to test for him?

          Angels are looking out for you & him - He passed his tests and is able to get a transplant. Not everyone is lucky enough. He is blessed.

          I pray it happens real soon.

          HUGS Thinking of you! & Merry Christmas too!

            Wonderful Wonderful News!!!! Getting on the list is the first you get to look forward to the agony of finding out who, if anyone, is a good match, and then the tests, then more tests, and the wait becomes unbearable so More Test are ordered. I'm still waiting for the Powers the Be make a determination about Reed giving me one of his kidneys. He goes thru all the hoops and red tape, the Doctors scratch their heads and look at the most recent results and they pass the buck from Kaiser Specialist to the Specialist at UCSF and they finally decide....let's wait another three months and check Reed's kidneys again. We are finding that laughing and crying are very close emotions. But best of luck to you and Jesse...hopefully he'll find a match ASAP and get his new/used kidney and be telling us how easy the entire procedure was in no time at all. What a wonderful Christmas present that will be!!!!

                  This for me made the most significant difference. The center and your nephrologist may fight this one, but it may indeed help. emergency plumbing
