Please excuse the informality of this blog, but it is easier for me to blog this information than to write each of you personally.
I went today for Transplant (kidney) workup and, long story short, the doctor convinced me to stop the transplant process.
With my history of mini-strokes, my age, and other physical maladies such as weight, surgery is not an option for me. The risks of surgery for me are too great, the possibilities of a major stroke.
So, the risks outweigh the benefits.
My kidneys are stable and if I keep on my eating regimen and other things I have been told to do, maybe in the future I might have to have dialysis.
So the doctor ordered the transplant process to stop.
And I am a happy man today.
