    As I wipe tears from my face I am so grateful to you both for sharing your thoughts and emotions today. It’s particularly timely for me personally as I begin my journey into the world of transplant this week. I share so much of the very same thoughts and emotions wondering what the outcome will be and if there’ll be someone out there who will be able to give me that special gift of a healthy kidney. Our fears are the same, as are our hopes and dreams for a quality of life that includes travel, family love, and lots of joyous moments to cherish. Here’s wishing you both well in your intertwined life journey. Best of health to you both. [hugs]

    I am so incredibly happy for you Nicole, to be able to have a pre-emotive transplant. And I am so incredibly grateful to Sue for being a living donor and giving Nicole the gift of life. Thank you both for sharing your story with us.
