Talking Not F-150 related, but have to brag a little

So I've been battling kidney failure for about 2 1/2 years. Tuesday, after about 6 months of testing, many blood draws and Dr appointments, my wonderful, awesome, selfless niece donated her kidney to me. She literally saved my life! Here we are about 2 hours before we got discharged, with the Director of transplants at Roberts Hospital, Baylor Scott White in Dallas Tx. Went in on Tuesday, released Friday.

felt better immediately, it was such a change, I could not believe what "normal" felt like again. Still a long road to final recovery, but getting better each day.
If this needs to be moved, please go ahead, this is the only sub forum I visit, so posted it here. She also loves my F-150!

EDIT: IT STAYS RIGHT HERE! Moderator.



Pic from Xmas, where I had no skin color left, I look so much better now, normal color again!

Damn, that's gotta be the ultimate trump card... if she wants *anything* and you refuse, "yeah, but I gave you a freakin' kidney!"

Glad you're feeling better, and huge props to her for doing something that selfless!

Awesome young lady
My Dad always used to say what a blessing it is just to have your health.
Whenever I think I am having a bad day( usually upset by something that is meaningless in the grand scheme of life ),
I try to think about all struggles that some have to go through just to be healthy.

Sincerely wishing you a long healthy life,

Joe
