14 more days

I'm actually getting a little excited now. I had time last evening because I couldn't go out to church (we're having revival meetings, don't know if I mentioned that before, but I can't go to any more meetings now) so I was able to have some time to myself and think about this transplant, cry about it, plan a little bit, figure out what I'm going to pack, and stuff like that. This morning as I woke up and started dialysis, realizing that even though I woke up earlier, I'm still going to have to do an exchange every two hours 7 times every day for two weeks... I got excited. Because in 14 days I'm gonna be off dialysis.

I'll be able to get this tube out of my stomach. I'll be able to swim again. I can go back to school. I can get a job and work. I won't be confined to my bed for the better part of the day. I'll feel well enough to call m friends and talk for hours. I'll feel well enough to even go and visit my friends like I used to. I'll be able to go places and do things again. I'll be able to just live again.

That's exciting.


  1. Dear Kristin,

    A few weeks ago I heard about your condition and your blog from Bible Baptist Church in Fairbanks, Alaska. The Lord has greatly burdened my heart for you. I am keeping you in my prayers every day. Yesterday evening I told my sister about the recent developments concerning your upcoming transplant -- she is praying, too.

    My heart goes out to you, Kristin. I can't begin to imagine what you are going through. This post really blessed me. I'm glad the Lord has encouraged you.

    Feelings change, peace departs, fear and stress are very real... but our precious Lord is faithful. Just hang onto that!

    With love in Jesus,

    Naomi Ungry
