Hank's new kidney
11 hours ago
August 20, 2009
Hi Family and Friends of Hank: We wanted to send a message to you letting you know where things are headed for Hank and a new kidney. It has gotten to be a long summer. Hank had hoped to get a new kidney earlier this summer. Things didn't work that way. My brother, Bob was a match, got Lyme Disease and opted out. My younger brother, Tim was tested and came up a good match. He completed testing last week and we hope to hear if all is clear this coming week. We will let you know when we hear. Hank had tests done a couple weeks ago and things are stable. He is not feeling good much of the time. No energy, very chilled, stomach situations and anemia. It's been hard on him but we are hopeful that things will start turning around. That's our story - that's all for now.
