End of May Transplant Update

I met with the OHSU kidney transplant doctors two weeks ago and was told that I was a good candidate for a kidney transplant. I also had a dozen or so blood samples taken, and an ultrasound of the abdomen. Last week a kidney transplant coordinator called to say that the transplant team wanted another ultrasound, a CT scan and more bloodwork. So we'll be traveling back to Portland next Wednesday (6/6) for all of the above, as well as at least two vaccines and a visit to my primary care doc.  Hopefully, the information gleaned from the day will result in my being finally listed for a combined heart and kidney transplant later in June!

WooHoo!!! A light at the end of the tunnel for sure! I am thinking wonderful travel-to-PDX thoughts for you, my ESD.
