My recipient, and Daddy, passed away last weekend. Our surgery was in April 2011, so we had nearly six years together post-transplant. He had fantastic kidney function the entire time, but developed untreatable cancer.
I'm really grateful I was able to give him a kidney when I did. He SO enjoyed life. We were always close, but shared a very special bond after the surgery.
I'd be happy for anyone who will say a prayer for us (Julia and John) , and for all donors and recipients.
