Today is #worldkidneyday and it’s been 11 years since I received my transplant. But today I found out I will need to be put back on the list for I am in a chronic antibody rejection. My kidney is failing quicker than usual and I need to start looking for a donor. I am Type A+. Since I have had multiple blood transfusion and treatments over the past 5 years I am SUPER sensitized so it will be even harder for me to find a match. But I KNOW GOD DIDN’T BRING ME THIS FAR TO GIVE UP ON ME NOW. #kidneytransplant #typea+ #kidneyrejection #plasmapheresis #donatelife #nationalkidneyfoundation #organdonation #transplant #transplantrecipient #fighter

• didn’t think it was possible to miss someone as much as I miss my sister , and we still talk every single day 🙁 counting down the days until this is over , so we can see her again. Sometimes when we are together we just sit there in each other’s company and don’t even talk , but it doesn’t matter , because we are there with each other if you know what I mean!! I really feel sad for people who don’t have a relationship with their sisters because I would be entirely lost in a world without mine . . . . #organdonation #cysticfibrosis #organrecipient #lungtransplant #kidneytransplant #corona #covid19

#Repost @kidneygroup • • • • • • Happy Wine Miami Today , Juan celebrates one year with his transplanted #kidney! You might remember him from an article that the #Miami Herald did about his journey to kidney transplant in 2019. Juan and his wife , Joanna , are the owners of the much beloved @happywinemiami on Calle Ocho. The article in the Herald chronicled how they had just opened a 2nd location in Coconut Grove , only to have to close down that location when he needed dialysis as he waited for the kidney transplant. Happily , he did amazingly well and quicky returned to work. Joanna is holding down the fort , because as a transplant patient , Juan realizes it’s important for him to be especially vigilant about social distancing at this time. He is filled with gratitude today!! Gratitude to his donor , to his wife who never left his side , to his family and friends , and to the wonderful doctors who took care of him at the University of Miami/Miami Transplant Institute particularly his surgeons Dr. Jose Figueiro and Dr. Gaetano Ciancio. Happy Wine is open for business and is offering all medical heroes a discount! Congratulations to you , Juan. Many more anniversaries ahead! 💚 #kidney #kidneytransplant #miamitransplantinstitute #miami #organdonation #wine #winelover #gratitude #smallbusiness #firstresponders

What kind of husband I have... My parent's laundry machine broke a week ago , and they've been socially isolated in Delta without one. This morning my sweetheart of a husband , woke up at 4am (after going to sleep at midnight) and drove 90 miles and delivered them a new one. This is just one example of who he is and has been all these years ❤ Selflessly serving others and not expecting anything in return. Did I mention he is donating his kidney to me 😭🥰🙏 #husbandbragpost #besthusband #soulmate #Godlyman #servingothers #love #giver #selfless #manofGod #mysweetheart #kidneydonor #dialysis #kidneyfailure #ckd #chronickidneydisease #kidneytransplant #transplant #alaska #northpole #deltajunction #usa

I will not use the shortcomings in this world as an excuse for the shortcomings in me.. . My path is not to imitate what is WRONG , but to lead in what is RIGHT.. . Each positive example I set , by always doing the next right thing for the right reason and by actually embodying or being what I believe in , ✨IMPROVES THE WORLD✨.. . I am willing to lead.. . - Stay well 🤍.. . #covid_19 #pandemic #livingkidneydonor #kidneytransplant #kidneydiseaseawareness #kidneydonor #kidneydonorathlete #selfcare #staywell #stayhome
