Sometimes I Have to Allow Words to Speak for Themselves

I am feeling okay.  Yesterday I could only give a small update on my appointment in Madison.  I am  seeing, along with the doctor(s) on my transplant team that my transplanted kidney is beginning to shut down due to a kidney disease called Glomerulonephritis.  I have called it something else because it seemed easier.  Now I have to think about dialysis again as well as another kidney transplant.  God is in control of everything and I am letting Him have control.  He says what goes will go His way as long as I follow Him and let Him guide me through all trials like I have done so in the past 28 1/2 years since my first transplant.

Am I upset?  No, I am not upset at all.  I am a little disappointed to the point that my transplanted kidney is not going to make it to 30 years but I do pray God for allowing my transplanted kidney to go as far as it has gone to what it is today.  I have to think about dialysis now and having another transplant in the near future.  God is in control here and I am going to continue to allow Him to have this control.  He is my best friend today and always.  I have gotten this far and I will continue to fight this battle with my health as far as it goes and I will NOT give up on God now or myself.  I even promised a former middle school teacher Mr. R I would not give up either.  Mr. R has Parkinson’s disease and is not communicating at all now.  He told me, when he was still able to communicate he would not give up, either.  I am okay with what is happening in my life right now.  My transplanted kidney has gotten a lot of mileage in the past 28 1/2 years.
