Paula,

Please keep up the hope that a kidney will be found and SOON for you. Don't worry...the extra stress ain't good for you.

Once I learned how to live in the NOW, life became a breeze! :)

Thanks, Roses! I'm feeling a bit down today, because my sister, the one who was going to donate a kidney to my hubby, was declined as a viable candidate yesterday by the nephrologist. This was her last appointment after all the testing!! So, back to square one. But, that's okay - as my husband said, it was never his kidney to have, and except for a bunch of numbers on his chart, he'd never know he was sick. So, On this Canadian Thanksgiving, I have much to be thankful for - my beautiful generous sister, and my wonderful, stubborn husband. emoticon

Keep Kicking!! We can do this together!!

Thank you all for your warm welcome! I've been on Spark for awhile now, but have never had a chance to make a SparkPage. The other team I'm on is the 10-Mins of Exercise Team, but have never chatted, or anything oh that one. I'm at work right now, but will look at it more when I get home. Thanks again!

Keep Kicking!! We can do this together!!

Welcome! Since you are keeping your SparkPage private, I'm not sure if you've been Sparking with other teams. If you need to familiarize yourself with this site, be sure to visit the "how to use this site" section - there's so much, an overview is very helpful. To get there, go to your START page. Then, look to the top right of the page. You'll see the tab for "how to use this site" as the last tab on the 2nd line of tabs (just under "our other sites".

Good luck to you and your family! If you have questions, or need to unburden yourself of some stress, this is the place to be!

The neatest thing with our group is that we ALL know what it is like to be in various stages of CKD. When one of our members is having "problems" we ALL work together to try to suggest alternatives! This group is what really caring is about. :)

Hi! I was happy to find this team because kidneys are encompassing our family life these days. My husband (43) is in end-stage kidney failure with a GFR of 8, but continues to hold his own without dialysis. He's got polycystic kidney disease, and our 14-year old daughter has it too, tho with no symptoms yet. On the bright side, my 39-year old sister, has offered to be a live donor for my husband, and will be having an MRI and last surgeon/nephrologist appointment this coming Thursday - this being the last of the tests/appointments she needs before they decide if she's a suitable donor. What an amazing gift!! Needless to say, my mind is completely full of appointments, questions, worries, etc. and I tend to neglect my diet and exercise programs with excuses of being too tired, too busy, etc. etc. His renal diet is, as you probably all know, completely contrary to what the food guide tells us to eat, so we eat what he can eat, and fill in the cracks with stuff we shouldn't. I'm looking forward to learning about, and visiting with others with this same issue, and hope that in some way, I can help others from the whirlwind of experiences my family and I have had over the past year. emoticon

Keep Kicking!! We can do this together!!
