2nd kidney transplant for a friend.. prayers please...

Well... I just got some sad news about a friend of mine... Actually I had a crush on Bob when we were in 4th grade... but I'm also friends with his wife and she's wonderful!!! Anyway... I just found out that he needs to have his 2nd kidney transplant. The last transplant he got a kidney from an old man, so they told him long ago that he would need another. He got the test results last night. We are all in shock. Bobby is my age. I'm waiting to hear because I think he has a rare blood type. Not that I could be a donor with my medical history... but I just wish there was something I could do...

so Please.. Prayers and Pixie Dust are appreciated... Thanks!!

Prayers said for Bob and his family

I hope his kidney comes fast, and his health recovers.

Thinking of Bob, it must be very difficult to face a second transport.

Have to learn to budget somehow. Want the latest video game? Save up. Want a new Beyblade? save up. Want a new Dooney and Burke? Grab the credit card out of DH's wallet...

Sprinkles and good juju from the wife of one looking at a kidney transplant in about 15 months.


If he is on "the list", his family or friends can participate in a "kidney swap". (we're looking at getting in one when it's time for DH to get his transplant). Basically, one person gives another person a kidney; someone in that person's circle donates a kidney to someone else; that person has a family/friend donate to someone else; and so on and so on until it comes full circle and the first person gets a kidney.
It takes some work to get it going, hospitals and doctors have to mesh schedules and everything...but once it does...well, it turns out awesome!

Thanks!

They are looking at all options... he has a good support system around him.. he is of course worried for his family, but we're hoping he gets the help he needs soon..

Experience with second transplant

My mother had two transplants WAY back in the late 70's early 80's. The first rejected after several weeks, the second came less than a year later and lasted for 10 years. I am praying for your friend.
