I am finally getting over this cold that has had me down for the last few weeks! I was admitted into the hospital with severe abdominal pains, which turned out to be a really large kidney stone. Today, I return to get the stone removed, the doctor will either use a laser to disintegrate the stone. Otherwise, a ultrasonic blast will be used to breakup the stone.
This weekend was hard in one of the other groups that I belong to. We lost 3 people that fought hard and long, but sadly a good match could not be found in time. There was an Individual who has been on the list for 4 1/2 years. Now so you understand, the meds we take are both a blessing and a curse. They help keep the body and heart strong, but have harmful effects on our other organs. Like the kidneys, liver, pancreas, lungs and bones. Well the meds took their toll on this individual, where now he needs a heart transplant and a double lung transplant. These are the reasons that drive me. Right now 52% of the American populous are NOT registered DONORS!
While I have been sick, I have had time to do some math. I currently have 257 days to my expected finished date and 27 new donors that have registered. That means I have to sign 9 donors per day to reach my goal of 2,190 new donors registered thru the link on this site. I humbly ask you if are not a donor and took the time to read this please click the link and register, Give the Ultimate give anyone can give another the Gift Of Life! Then, “Share” this with your friends. If you are a donor, I want to thank you and ask you to “Share” this site as well.
