This time I WILL lose the weight!

In September of 2009 my husband, who was then 31 years old, was diagnosed with stage 3 kidney failure due to Polycystic Kidney Diease.

In June of 2012 he started peritoneal dialysis because his kidney failure had reached stage 5 and he was really sick.

This past December, I decided that I was going to fight hard to lose the weight so I can be tested to give my husband a kidney. We aren't sure I will even be allowed to donate at all, but we will never know for sure ...

This past December, I decided that I was going to fight hard to lose the weight so I can be tested to give my husband a kidney. We aren't sure I will even be allowed to donate at all, but we will never know for sure until I can be properly tested. So now I'm fighting harder than I ever had before to lose the weight.

My first goal is to get down to 175. At that weight I will be able to start the testing process. My ultimate goal is 135.

If I'm able to donate and I'm not a match for my husband, I hope that we can arrange a swap, so he can still get a kidney.

Hi! I'm Paula. My hubby's 45 and has been on peritoneal dialysis for 10 months now. He was, and continues to be, in end-stage kidney failure due to polycystic kidney disease too. I'm not a blood type match to him but my sister is, as are 3 more of our friends who have all been tested, but disqualified for one reason or another. If you have any questions about the process, I'd love to visit with someone else in the same boat I'm in.

Take care, and hope to hear from you :)

I have sounded like I have been scolding you, haven't I? I don't mean to. I just want you to feel positive. I just know you are a wonderful woman!

I am sending Love and Hugs!
