When I was discharged from the hospital, I went home with bunch of medications where three of them are immuno suppressant to keep my body from rejecting the new kidney transplanted in me. Not only the medicines are to many, but very expensive, too! Thank goodness, I was covered with Medicare on top of our health insurance...we only spent $250 bucks for everything. I'll say, that we are blessed to be living in this country where advanced technology is available for those people who have life threatening disease like me. Who would have thought that I would get new kidney for such a short wait. I am still taking medications...and will be taking for the rest of my life or at least the life of the kidney.

Eight months later, I was blessed to get new kidney from a baby (Thanks to You, My Donor). It was in March of 2006 (3am) when I got a call from Medical City saying that they've found a donor that would possibly be a perfect match for me. I was very happy and thank my Heavenly Father for GREAT blessing and an advanced birthday present for me since my birthday was ten days away. Hubby and I got up early, went to the hospital and waited for the result whether the kidney was a match or not. There were three of us there waiting which one of us will be getting the kidney. Fortunately, I was the one who perfectly match the donors kidney! We were elated...so after eight hours of waiting, finally was admitted and wheeled me to my room where I waited for the surgery to be done. The surgery lasted for hours and thank goodness, the kidney started working already! I stayed at the hospital for more than a week, then went home.
