Like most of us, I love to read reviews and check several websites before buying anything. Like, anything. I spent 30 minutes today researching can openers. If you're interested, I went with the three dollar/three star one from Target (review to come later). So I've ha...

Woo-hoo!! Today is my three month kidney-versary! During the last couple of years, I did princess songs while I waited for my kidney (check them out on this blog if you missed them). After transplant, a doctor told me that I may have a hard time singing for a while due...

As you all know, I'm raising money for my upcoming transplant. I've posted a few princess song videos on my Facebook, but wanted to share them here too. It's fun relating songs that I love to my kidney journey!

Ok, So here’s where I’m going to try to make a long story short. Around two months ago, I applied to be listed in Jacksonville. I was th...

Fistulas, and Grafts, and Catheters… Oh my!

          So I’ve talked about my fistula on here before. As a reminder, it’s my super vein access in my left arm for dialysis. Over the past three years, I’ve gone through periods where my fistula would get an aneurysm. It wo...
