I've been frustrated about Florida Hospital rejecting my application for a transplant because I was 7 pounds over their limit (and 17 pounds over their limit for surgery), so last Wednesday I emailed the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville to find out their requirements.

Turns out I could have been on their list MONTHS ago, but I'm not letting that bother me now, because...

Last Friday, the dialysis center mailed out the application to the Mayo Clinic. Finally!

Now the evaluation process begins. I'll have to have a mammogram, a dental check, possibly a colonoscopy and an exam by a cardiologist to make certain I'm healthy enough to handle the surgery. Once I'm cleared, then the center will begin the evaluation of cousins to find out if they're compatible.

Of course, the ironic part of this whole situation is that I've now lost enough weight to apply to the transplant center right here in town. The social worker talked me into applying there as well, so I now have twice the chance of getting a kidney.

Keep your fingers crossed for me!

hoping *so* hard for good news for you soon! *HUGS*
Yay!! Much hugs and crossing of fingers!
