In the next few weeks I'll be interviewed/evaluated/tested and possibly put on the long list for a transplant as all AKD patients are and if it would happen and it's not rejected and I take care of myself, it will be good for about 10 years. That would put me past the age of 72, which is the age limit for transplants, then I would go back on dialysis for the duration of my life.

At some point in time people need to wake up, remove their cranial intrusion into their own rectal areas, and take responsibility for their own actions.
