Sparking with my DW

My name is Bob, and I'm married to MIMAWELIZABETH.
She always tells me how much Sparking helps her, and shares articles and blogs with me. I lost weight a few years ago after starting a new med to treat my Type II Diabetes. However, since my kidneys began to fail, life has drastically changed.

I was diagnosed with ESRD (End Stage Renal Disease) in February 2011, and have been on PD (Peritoneal Dialysis, which is done at home) since June 2011. They say I'm doing very well ...

I was diagnosed with ESRD (End Stage Renal Disease) in February 2011, and have been on PD (Peritoneal Dialysis, which is done at home) since June 2011. They say I'm doing very well on the Dialysis; but I still get tired very easily, and am limited in what I can do physically. I also regained the weight.

With DW's help, I'm tracking my food again, and committed to eating healthily and losing weight. My application for a kidney transplant was submitted. Not only do I want to be an excellent transplant candidate, if I'm lucky enough to be a recipient, I'll take the very best care of my new kidney.

My Goals:
My goal is to track my food, learn about the quality of what I'm eating, and eat all the necessary and extra nutrients required by being on PD.

My Program:
I've been a Type II diabetic for a long time, and maintained a healthy A1C for several years. However, ESRD has caused my health to fluctuate.

My wife has been asking me for a long time to make sure my food intake is as healthy as it should be. She's helping me to track, and I'm learning to make better choices.


Personal Information:
I've lived in SoCal all my life. Elizabeth and I have been married for almost 12 years, together over 16.

We are "Mimaw" and "Grandpa" to Kaile, who is my daughter's daughter.
My DD also raised a stepson from the age of four; he graduated from HS in June 2011, and often hangs out.

Including my Mom, our four generations live within two miles of each other.

Elizabeth's kids - Aubrey and Scott - are my stepchildren. She says I can take credit for helping her to "finish raising them." We lost Scott in February 2008.


Other Information:
I'm an LA Dodgers fan, despite the McCourts; and I STILL hope the Rams will come back to Los Angeles someday!

Welcome to the ESRD team! We learn a lot from each other here, and I am sure SparkPeople will be a great asset to you... I was in stage 4 before I started here, and got up to stage 3. Of course, then I had to have some major surgery and it threw all my hard work out the window... That's life! LOL

I love SP and all the tools it has given me, and I'm now on the borderline between stage 4 and stage 3... I don't know if I can get more than that back, but who knows? LOL

I know you're in a different place, with a more advanced level, but I also know that your goal for a transplant is going to be easier to meet once you start getting into the tools and so on too... so have some fun with it, make it your friend and ally...

WELCOME ABOARD!
