DREAM THE IMPOSSIBLE, TACKLE THE IMPOSSIBLE, OVERCOME THE IMPOSSIBLE

Been living with kidney disease since 1992.
Did dialysis for 4 months in '94, then received a kidney transplant from my brother Brian on October 31,1994....WHAT A GUY!!!
The transplant failed after 12 years of "freedom" and I have been back on the dialysis treatments since Sept. 2006.

I joined SparkPeople thanks to BLUESKY104-- my sister's urging and love all the knowledge, tools, and support that exists.

I strive to stay as strong and healthy as possible ...

I strive to stay as strong and healthy as possible and am VERY fortunate I can do my hemodialysis treatments in my home

I love going for walks and discovering nature everyday with 3 dogs--Treasure, Puddles & Biscuit!

I enjoy reading, playing the piano and the warmth of many of my close family members. Oh yeah, and did I say I loved dogs?
